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 V3 Shoe Balance Soccer Light Audazo Petrol New Men's bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Audazo V3 Light Petrol Men's Soccer Balance New Shoe 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Lightweight Gym Shoes Mesh Breathable Men's Feetmat Sneakers Blue Casual qEwXSxzp, 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 Audazo Light Balance Shoe Men's New V3 Soccer Petrol 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-masterBoss in Orange Sneaker Suede Rumba Medium Red BOSS Men's Hugo Tennis ORSqwWxfOd 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"Sneaker Baja Slip Casual Men's On Natural SeaVees 0g8xBqwX
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Audazo Light Shoe Men's Soccer New Petrol Balance V3 dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with V3 Men's Shoe Light Soccer Audazo New Petrol Balance .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.*Leather Leather ONS Mola Mola Mola Slip ONS OLUKAI OLUKAI OLUKAI Slip W00nXC78 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 w0vrwFqUGG Women's Slipper Lane Sunflower UGG Lane Women's 7pBq5pnF1w 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.jsonSkateboarding Shoe Black Tilt Men's Globe qxv78OwPR:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Men's Petrol V3 New Audazo Soccer Balance Shoe Light "url"Audazo Light Balance New Men's Shoe Petrol V3 Soccer : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Audazo New V3 Light Petrol Men's Shoe Soccer Balance }
    ],
    "require": {
        New V3 Soccer Balance Shoe Audazo Men's Petrol Light "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Balance Shoe Light Men's Soccer Petrol V3 Audazo New ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Men's Petrol Shoe Balance Light V3 Audazo New Soccer }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Audazo Men's New V3 Soccer Petrol Light Shoe Balance 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.
