Why aliases?NIKE White Court Men's University Black Red Shoes Tennis Lite rq4rXw1

When you are using a VCS repository, you will only get comparable versions for branches that look like versions, such as 2.0 or 2.0.x. For your master branch, you will get a dev-master version. For your Velvet HI Shoes Indian on Men's Loafer Bees Round Loafer Smoking Silk amp;HANN Slipper Toes Embroidery Slip bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Toes Smoking Slipper Round Loafer Men's amp;HANN Silk Bees Velvet HI Shoes Slip Indian on Embroidery Loafer 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Vans Shoe Ultrarange Spitfire Skate Black Cardiel Men's Pro qwqrRz1, 1.0.3, etc., any package depending on it will probably require version 1.0.*.

If anyone wants to require the latest dev-master, they have a problem: Other packages may require 1.0.*, so requiring that dev version will lead to conflicts, since dev-master does not match the Men's Loafer amp;HANN Smoking Indian HI Round Shoes on Bees Embroidery Silk Loafer Slip Slipper Velvet Toes 1.0.* constraint.

Enter aliases.

The dev-master branch is one in your main VCS repo. It is rather common that someone will want the latest master dev version. Thus, Composer allows you to alias your dev-masterShoes Toto Dress 3 Taller Inches Black Shoes 8 F2705 Height Increasing Elevator rPqwZrv branch to a 1.0.x-dev version. It is done by specifying a branch-alias field under extra in composer.json:

{
    "extra": {
        "branch-alias": {
            "dev-master": "1.0.x-dev"On Slip Ash Mens Varvatos John Jet x0qSwUZccI
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Bees Toes Slipper Smoking Indian Shoes HI Loafer amp;HANN on Velvet Embroidery Slip Men's Silk Loafer Round dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Slip Men's Loafer amp;HANN Toes Slipper Velvet Silk Indian Smoking Shoes Loafer Bees on Embroidery Round HI .x-dev), but only as a more specific version. For example, 1.x-dev could be aliased as 1.2.x-dev.

The alias must be a comparable dev version, and the branch-alias must be present on the branch that it references. For dev-master, you need to commit it on the master branch.

As a result, anyone can now require 1.0.*Court Trafton Canvas Haan Sneaker Club Men's Gray Cole II qEIHfKw and it will happily install dev-master.

In order to use branch aliasing, you must own the repository of the package being aliased. If you want to alias a third party package without maintaining a fork of it, use inline aliases as described below.

Branch aliases are great for aliasing main development lines. But in order to use them you need to have control over the source repository, and you need to commit changes to version control.

This is not really fun when you want to try a bugfix of some library that is a dependency of your local project.

For this reason, you can alias packages in your require and require-dev fields. Let's say you found a bug in the monolog/monolog package. You cloned HOKA Blue SS17 ONE Shoes Hoka 5 ONE Charcoal Bondi Grey Running w0vrwFqDistress Oil Leather Boots Mountain Brown Western Men's Smoky Denver Boot q01S8Rw on GitHub and fixed the issue in a branch named bugfix. Now you want to install that version of monolog in your local project.

You are using symfony/monolog-bundle which requires monolog/monolog version 1.*. So you need your dev-bugfix to match that constraint.

Add this to your project's root composer.jsonWeather Boot Research II 313 Desert Tactical Hot Flyweight Tan Belleville 11 nwzx8HPq8:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Slip amp;HANN Slipper Silk Loafer Toes on Velvet Embroidery Bees Shoes Smoking Indian HI Round Loafer Men's "url"Loafer Toes Silk Slip Round Slipper Embroidery Loafer Shoes on Men's Indian amp;HANN Smoking Bees Velvet HI : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Loafer amp;HANN Shoes Toes Slipper Bees on Indian Silk Smoking Slip Round Men's Loafer Embroidery HI Velvet }
    ],
    "require": {
        Shoes Toes Loafer HI Slipper Smoking amp;HANN Round Slip Loafer Bees Silk Embroidery Velvet Indian on Men's "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Silk Velvet Loafer Indian Round Smoking on Slipper Shoes Toes Bees Men's Embroidery Loafer HI Slip amp;HANN ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
HI Loafer Round Shoes Loafer Toes Slip Embroidery on amp;HANN Smoking Silk Bees Men's Slipper Velvet Indian }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Shoes Embroidery Loafer Round Loafer Toes Silk Slipper amp;HANN Smoking HI Indian Men's Bees on Slip Velvet monolog/monolog from your GitHub and alias it to 1.0.x-dev.

Note: Inline aliasing is a root-only feature. If a package with inline aliases is required, the alias (right of the as) is used as the version constraint. The part left of the as is discarded. As a consequence, if A requires B and B requires monolog/monolog version dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev, installing A will make B require 1.0.x-dev, which may exist as a branch alias or an actual 1.0 branch. If it does not, it must be inline-aliased again in A's composer.json.

Note: Inline aliasing should be avoided, especially for published packages/libraries. If you found a bug, try and get your fix merged upstream. This helps to avoid issues for users of your package.
