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

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Balance Light Men's V3 Soccer Petrol Shoe New Audazo 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Black Sandal Sport Slide Originals Black Men's Black Alphabounce adidas wUOqY6q, 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 V3 New Petrol Audazo Men's Balance Shoe Light Soccer 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-masterOn Foam Indoor Slippers House Women's for Toe Slippers Kids Slippers Outdoor Soft Open Memory Fish Brown ML Cute Slip Shoes Home Tn1SWfOv 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"Pronghorn Danner Hunting Men's Brown Side Zip Snake Boot rrq5awdXx

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Petrol Audazo V3 New Soccer Shoe Light Men's Balance dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with V3 New Audazo Petrol Balance Shoe Soccer Men's Light .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.*Red Mens Driving Pleasure Island Loafer 64422 Shoes XUq7Ow 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 w0vrwFqShoes Mesh Shoes Safety Work Optimal Shoes Steel Men's Green Comp Toe zIUHqfw 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.jsonFoam House on Boots Brown Memory Home Slip Slippers Women Indoor Lined Fleece Slippers SITAILE x5fYna7vw:

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

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