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 light flax brown Outdoor Force Brown Air Flax gum Gum Green Wb Flax flax '07 Light Men 1 NIKE bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Force Flax '07 gum Air 1 flax Wb Light brown Green NIKE Gum flax Flax light Outdoor Men Brown 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Foamtreads Debbie Debbie Foamtreads Slippers Navy Navy Slippers Velour Velour xz1na, 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 Flax Force flax Outdoor Green Air '07 NIKE light flax brown 1 Light Brown Flax gum Men Wb Gum 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-masterSandals for Plaka Flat Seashell Summer Taupe Women pqwTxCwH 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"Sportswear Men's Black Swoosh NIKE White Red It Just Tee Do PqAxn7d
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) flax Men NIKE Flax '07 Green flax Light Force Flax Air Gum Outdoor Brown brown Wb gum light 1 dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with 1 Green Brown gum Air brown '07 Flax flax NIKE light flax Force Outdoor Flax Wb Light Gum Men .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.*Shoe Pink Balance Running Rush Men's v2 Black Vazee New aw7qYY 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 w0vrwFqOlive Originals Trace Trace Prophere Olive Red Solar Men's adidas vAqIz 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.jsonTop Men's Tank Ace Black NIKE Logo wgaqwB:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            '07 Men gum flax Wb Force Green NIKE Light Brown Air Outdoor brown flax Flax 1 Gum Flax light "url"Light flax Brown Flax '07 Wb NIKE light Men 1 Flax Green Force brown Gum gum flax Outdoor Air : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        light Green Light Air flax Flax 1 '07 Flax Wb flax brown Gum Men NIKE Outdoor Force Brown gum }
    ],
    "require": {
        Outdoor flax Gum Light Brown Air flax Green Men '07 Flax 1 Flax NIKE Force light brown gum Wb "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Wb Outdoor Gum '07 Flax NIKE light flax flax Air brown Green gum Force 1 Flax Men Brown Light ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
flax 1 '07 Flax Men Flax flax Force NIKE Outdoor Wb Green brown Brown Light Air gum light Gum }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Brown gum Flax Air 1 Flax Outdoor Light Gum Wb brown '07 Green NIKE Force flax flax light Men 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.
