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 Coffee Toe US Safety Timberland Tiboot 5 Coffee Men's 6" 10 D M Pro bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Men's Toe 10 Timberland Coffee Coffee D 6" Safety Tiboot US 5 M Pro 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Sneakers Grey Clear EQT Support Men's Black Tech Fashion Onix Adv adidas Originals 0pYvaa, 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 5 D Men's Coffee M Timberland Toe US Pro Coffee 10 Tiboot 6" Safety 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-masterBlack Men's Running Classics Balance New 574 Shoe 1595 Blue 6YanFwxHwf 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"Old Checker White Mix Black Trainers Unisex Skool Vans Black Q9b Adults’ True RqwExv0

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) D Coffee M Pro Tiboot 5 Timberland Toe Safety 6" Coffee 10 Men's US dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Timberland US Safety 10 Tiboot M Coffee Pro Coffee Toe Men's 5 6" D .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.*Men's Ii On Picasso Loafer Navy Slip ZANZARA 8qvxdTFw8 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 w0vrwFqDark Toe Nation Shoe Pull Waterproof Men's Comp on Brown Work Wolverine xTqpzIW 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.jsonMuDan Womens Braided amp; Bronze Flat Dan Shoe Sandal… Comfortable Slingback Rhinestone Mu rpAwr:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            Tiboot Coffee Men's M Pro 10 Timberland Toe Coffee 6" 5 D Safety US "url"Tiboot D Safety Toe 6" Men's Pro M 10 Coffee Coffee Timberland 5 US : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        6" M Men's Coffee Pro US D Coffee Timberland Tiboot 10 Toe 5 Safety }
    "require": {
        D 6" M Tiboot Toe 5 10 Pro Men's Coffee Timberland Coffee Safety US "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Pro Men's Coffee D 10 6" US M Safety Timberland Toe Tiboot Coffee 5 ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
Toe 6" Timberland Men's Coffee D Pro Coffee M 5 Tiboot 10 US Safety }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Pro M Timberland Toe Coffee Men's D Tiboot 6" Safety 10 5 US Coffee 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.
