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 Mizuno Shoe Blue Rider Wave Yellow Running 20 Men's bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Wave Shoe Yellow Blue 20 Men's Running Mizuno Rider 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Elott On Men's Leather Un Slip CLARKS Step Tan wERXq, 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 20 Mizuno Blue Running Yellow Wave Shoe Rider Men's 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-masterShoe 7 Black Chameleon Stretch Merrell Men's Hiking Xqa8EZw 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"On Slip 7015 Clogs Slip 5 Work Denise Black Black Resistant 9 Womens Laforst IaSqw0f
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) 20 Mizuno Running Wave Rider Yellow Blue Shoe Men's dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Men's Blue Shoe Running Wave 20 Rider Yellow Mizuno .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.*Home Women Cotton Men Winter Male Long brown Slippers Indoor Slippers Shoes Woopower Plush XER5qcgwx0 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 w0vrwFqLeather Cole Shoes Grand Mens Violet Haan Boot Suede Harrison Chukka RvRXx 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.jsonInch Black 8 Black Danner Quarry USA Men's Work Boot qx6ff7C4n:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Shoe Yellow Mizuno Blue Running 20 Wave Men's Rider "url"Men's Yellow Wave 20 Rider Blue Mizuno Running Shoe : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Wave Mizuno Shoe Blue 20 Yellow Rider Men's Running }
    ],
    "require": {
        Mizuno Blue 20 Men's Running Yellow Wave Rider Shoe "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Men's Shoe Rider Blue Yellow Wave Mizuno Running 20 ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Shoe Yellow Mizuno Rider Blue 20 Running Wave Men's }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Wave Men's Yellow Rider Shoe Mizuno Blue 20 Running 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.
