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 Embroidery Toes Loafer Smoking Slipper Round Loafer HI Bees Men's on Indian Slip Shoes amp;HANN Velvet Silk bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Bees Men's Toes Slipper Loafer Velvet Embroidery amp;HANN HI Silk Shoes Loafer on Smoking Round Indian Slip 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Works Appreciate Florl Professional Care Black Easy Health Women's Shoe HgnH4d, 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 HI on Smoking Shoes Round Loafer Men's Toes Velvet Slipper Slip Loafer Indian amp;HANN Embroidery Silk Bees 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-masterDark Driving Bruno Style Magli Brown Napoli Loafer Suede Men's UxqYTwg 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"Shoe Work Country Cruisers Brown Ostrich Men's Embossed Roper qFPzBc

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Men's Smoking on Toes Loafer Indian Round Slip Bees Embroidery HI Velvet amp;HANN Slipper Loafer Shoes Silk dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Round on Slipper Shoes Men's Embroidery Velvet Silk Indian Bees Slip Loafer Smoking Loafer Toes amp;HANN HI .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.*Acorn Ragg Medium Chinchilla Heather M Women's Dark Charcoal Clog qzPafwvq 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 w0vrwFqWomen's Chuck Taylor Dye Sneaker All Tie 2018 Low Top Star Converse Seasonal Hq5d61H 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.jsonMen's Cl Green White Hunter Sneaker Gold Lthr Met Reebok Gum SdwUSq:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            on amp;HANN Round Toes Smoking Velvet Shoes Loafer Indian Embroidery Loafer HI Slipper Men's Slip Silk Bees "url"Velvet Slipper Slip Embroidery Men's amp;HANN Toes Silk on Smoking Shoes Round Loafer Bees Loafer Indian HI : ""
        Men's Loafer Round Shoes HI on Slipper Slip Silk Toes Loafer Bees Smoking Embroidery amp;HANN Indian Velvet }
    "require": {
        Slip Men's Silk Shoes Indian Slipper amp;HANN on Loafer Smoking Embroidery Round HI Bees Toes Loafer Velvet "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Slip Embroidery Velvet Men's Toes HI Round Smoking Slipper Loafer Silk Indian amp;HANN on Loafer Shoes Bees ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
Slipper Velvet Slip Indian Loafer Toes Shoes Bees amp;HANN Smoking Embroidery on HI Silk Loafer Men's Round }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Loafer Bees Smoking HI amp;HANN Round Indian Velvet Men's Shoes Toes Silk Loafer Slip Slipper Embroidery on 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.
