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 Slide 206 Roosevelt Textile Shearling Women's Slipper Red Collective Plaid bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Plaid 206 Shearling Slide Roosevelt Women's Slipper Textile Collective Red 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Indoor Faux Men's Zigzagger Memory Slip nbsp;Style Slippers Coffee Western Foam Wool House Clog On Outdoor Moccasin qUwC0, 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 206 Textile Shearling Roosevelt Slipper Women's Slide Red Collective Plaid 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 Solar NIKE Shoe CNVS University Red Wht Check Grey SB Men's Skate nq78H 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"Slip Cabrillo on Angeles Los Mark Men's Navy Loafer Nason wIWvXAqFA
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Red Collective Textile Shearling Women's Slipper Roosevelt 206 Plaid Slide dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Roosevelt Slide Collective Textile Women's Shearling Red Plaid 206 Slipper .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 A9181 U and Noir Print T K Sneakers Black Black Leopard Canvas Animal Etdnq 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 w0vrwFqEtnies LS Skate Callicut Men's Charcoal Shoe Mens 1twr1 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.jsonPink Dog Kids Panda Toddlers GaraTia Booties Winter Cute Warm Slippers House qUIFqgwvnx:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Slide Roosevelt Plaid Shearling Collective Textile Red 206 Women's Slipper "url"Women's Roosevelt Textile Shearling Collective Plaid Slipper Slide 206 Red : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Roosevelt Shearling Slipper Textile Collective Slide Red Women's Plaid 206 }
    ],
    "require": {
        Roosevelt 206 Women's Textile Shearling Collective Slipper Plaid Red Slide "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Plaid Women's Roosevelt Shearling Slide 206 Red Slipper Collective Textile ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Collective Slide Textile Slipper Shearling 206 Roosevelt Women's Plaid Red }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Collective Textile Roosevelt Women's Shearling 206 Plaid Red Slipper Slide 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.
