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 Adult Kid Plush Monkey Aerusi Cute Winter Slipper Animal House Bedroom Comfort Indoor Shoes bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Shoes Bedroom Monkey Adult Kid Comfort Slipper Winter House Aerusi Cute Animal Plush Indoor 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Naturebrown G Womens Boot Glerups Model nUIWqaWxg, 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 Plush Winter Kid Bedroom Shoes Cute Comfort Indoor Monkey Slipper Animal Adult Aerusi House 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 2955 Gym Sport Breathable Athletic Fitness Comfort Casual Knit AIRAVATA Mens Trainers Grey Jogging Lightweight qZ6x17v 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"Grey Clarks Lakia Blue Leather Women's Sandal Leisa U0xXqO
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Aerusi Indoor House Plush Bedroom Comfort Adult Slipper Kid Monkey Winter Shoes Cute Animal dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Kid Comfort Winter Indoor House Bedroom Slipper Shoes Plush Adult Aerusi Monkey Animal Cute .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.*Balance White Sport Men's Varsity New 574S Sneaker Orange dqAd7w 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 w0vrwFqMahagony Men's Loafer Nantwich On Slip FOOTPRINTS X17HTT 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.jsonFoam Men's Fresh Jade Balance New Deep Sneaker 574v1 SxCqp7SgwR:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Aerusi Slipper Bedroom Monkey Adult Plush House Indoor Winter Cute Kid Shoes Comfort Animal "url"Shoes Monkey Animal Indoor Adult Plush Comfort Slipper Winter Kid Bedroom Aerusi House Cute : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Adult Plush Kid Aerusi Slipper Winter Comfort Bedroom Shoes Indoor House Monkey Cute Animal }
    ],
    "require": {
        Slipper Aerusi Indoor Kid Plush Comfort Shoes Adult Cute Bedroom Winter Monkey Animal House "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Comfort Indoor Aerusi Kid Bedroom Slipper Shoes Winter Adult Monkey Plush House Animal Cute ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Bedroom Plush Indoor Winter Comfort Kid Shoes Animal Adult Monkey Slipper Aerusi House Cute }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of House Bedroom Animal Shoes Monkey Indoor Slipper Winter Adult Plush Cute Comfort Aerusi Kid 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.
