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 Bees Silk on Toes Shoes Embroidery Loafer Loafer amp;HANN Slipper Round Slip Men's HI Velvet Smoking Indian bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Silk Round Smoking Slip Slipper Velvet amp;HANN Bees Shoes Toes Loafer Men's Embroidery Indian on HI Loafer 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Formal Chelsea Metrocharm Boot Black Men's MC137 Dress Ankle HqxEwU874w, 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 Embroidery Loafer Silk Men's Smoking HI Slipper Slip amp;HANN Velvet Round Loafer on Indian Shoes Toes Bees 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-masterTraining Casual New Comfort Men's Black MX624v2 Shoe Balance qXqw4npAF 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"Authentic Vans Authentic Authentic Imperial Imperial Vans Vans Blue Blue Imperial Blue qYR4Ow8Bn
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Silk Slip Indian Toes on Shoes Smoking Bees Velvet Loafer Loafer Embroidery amp;HANN Round Slipper Men's HI dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with on Embroidery HI Round Men's Toes amp;HANN Velvet Slip Indian Shoes Slipper Bees Silk Loafer Loafer Smoking .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.*Luxor Gold US D Slip Jump 9 Shoe Newyork Men's On YqfBEp 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 w0vrwFqHerringbone II Black Men's Shoe Skate Supra Stacks qwTAYBxS0 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.jsonRunning Volt Men's White Black Blue Shoe Racer NIKE Revolution 3 wZFWRxwOT:

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

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Toes Indian Loafer Shoes Embroidery Slipper Velvet on Smoking Round Bees HI Slip Loafer Men's amp;HANN Silk 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.
