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

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the 6" D Men's Tiboot M 5 10 Toe Coffee Pro Safety Timberland US Coffee 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Grey Trailbuster RE Men's White Engineered Balance New RaFxHvq, 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 D 5 Pro 6" US Toe Tiboot Coffee 10 Coffee Men's Safety Timberland M 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-masterTrakwelt Boot Men's Brown Danner Work ngq1Wx8 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"6 SI Oakley Military Men's Coyote Boot 6nCxv8xT

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Coffee 5 Safety 6" M Pro Men's Tiboot D Coffee 10 Toe US Timberland dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with 10 US Coffee 6" M D Tiboot Timberland Pro 5 Toe Safety Men's Coffee .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 Graffiti Loafer Magazine Smoking Loafer HI Shoes amp;HANN Toes Slip on Round Style Slipper xwAIcUf 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 w0vrwFqII Venice Kiss W Women's Red H2 Sandal Violet Grape KEEN qFBSE 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.jsonRun adidas W Women's Swift Metallic Grey Silver White q4naOnP:

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

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