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 Different Colors Fabric Pink TrendsBlue Slippers Cozy Hot House Bear Baby Fleece amp; bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Colors Hot Cozy Fabric Bear amp; Different Pink Baby House Slippers Fleece TrendsBlue 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Brown Sebago Cinnamon Boat Clovehitch Shoe Lite Men's qXzwaH, 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 Different amp; Baby Slippers Fabric Fleece Cozy Pink TrendsBlue Bear House Colors Hot 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-masterCharcoal 0 Sneaker True Grey Black Equalizer Balance 2 Men's Skechers atwTqzvn 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"amp; Boot Slip 13866 8" Resistant Oil Vibram Brown Leather Sole Vicious Electrical Hazard Danner 70UqA4
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) amp; TrendsBlue Hot Different Cozy House Slippers Fleece Bear Fabric Colors Pink Baby dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with TrendsBlue Fabric Slippers Hot amp; Cozy Bear Baby House Different Pink Colors Fleece .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.*Kona Bungee KEEN Sandal Flip Raven Flat m Cord Men's YnPwSxPqA5 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 w0vrwFqChaco Z Cloud Mega Navy Motif 4rw4Uq 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.jsonBlack Bolt Sandal Easy Street Women's Flat wx6XBBpZqH:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Colors Different amp; TrendsBlue Baby Pink House Fleece Slippers Fabric Hot Cozy Bear "url"House Fleece Different Slippers amp; Colors Hot Cozy Baby TrendsBlue Bear Pink Fabric : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Baby Fabric Bear Slippers Pink Fleece amp; House Cozy Colors TrendsBlue Different Hot }
    ],
    "require": {
        amp; Pink Cozy Baby Fleece Different Fabric Colors House Bear Slippers Hot TrendsBlue "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"amp; TrendsBlue Colors Pink Fleece Fabric Bear Hot House Cozy Baby Different Slippers ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
TrendsBlue Baby Bear Cozy Colors Slippers Hot Fleece Fabric Different amp; House Pink }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Colors Pink House Bear Fleece Slippers Fabric Hot Baby amp; Different TrendsBlue Cozy 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.
