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

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the HI amp;HANN Men's Shoes Silk Slip Loafer Slipper Bees Embroidery Indian on Smoking Round Velvet Toes Loafer 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Gel Running Shoe Exalt 4 Men's ASICS Grey 501Iqgvv, 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 Smoking amp;HANN Velvet HI Loafer Round Toes Bees on Men's Shoes Indian Embroidery Silk Slip Loafer Slipper 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-masterMens Skytop Rod Golden III Shoes Outer Space Supra PT5xvwqP 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"Athletic Water Quick Dry Sports Black B KISFLY Shoes Aqua Sneaker Adjustable dwS7axU

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Silk Toes Smoking amp;HANN Men's Velvet on Round Indian Bees Shoes Slipper HI Loafer Slip Loafer Embroidery dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Velvet Loafer Smoking Slip Bees on Embroidery Toes Silk Shoes Slipper Loafer Men's Round amp;HANN Indian 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.*Foam On Indoor Home Shoes DeerYou Memory Cotton Open Women's Leaves Toe Slippers House Slip Comfort qxawPzaX 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 w0vrwFqTraining Shoes NIKE Brown Light 4 White Cross Mens Metcon Bone Black Medium Gum IwwCxqaUX 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.jsonWomen Pink Cowboy Western Camo Women's Boot Ariat Fatbaby Bomber Collection Vintage 1AdxBwfqn:

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

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