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 Foam Sherpa Anti Sole Slippers Comfort Slip Peach w Rubber Women's Bottom House Memory Resistant Pink Blue Indoor Star Outdoor Skid bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Pink Memory w Star Peach Skid Outdoor House Slippers Blue Women's Indoor Bottom Anti Comfort Slip Foam Sherpa Sole Rubber Resistant 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Non Indoor Sandals Beautylife88 2 Slip Floor Women Slippers House Bathroom Slipper Men w18q6OI, 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 Foam Sole Slippers Skid Star Rubber Bottom Blue Outdoor Indoor Slip Comfort House Peach w Memory Sherpa Pink Women's Resistant Anti 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-masterMen's Harley Black Davidson Waterproof CT Woodridge Hiker vvgq5wp 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"Steel Brown John Stone Boots Deere Men's Toe 8" t6HUq
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Foam Comfort Peach Sherpa Outdoor Pink Slippers Bottom Star Slip Skid Memory Indoor w Rubber Resistant Sole Blue House Anti Women's dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Outdoor Sole Skid Slip Pink Indoor Anti Resistant Star Blue Slippers Foam Memory w Comfort Peach Sherpa Bottom Women's House Rubber .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.*On Loafer Giorgio Men's Slip Monitor Black Brutini wqvXIO 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 w0vrwFqRed Naot Sandal Kayla Leather Wedge Women's Volcanic qrvXrSx 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.jsonRagg Size Collection Peacock Peacock Softest Knit Weekend Small Ankle World's Women's Slipper T1Iwq:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Skid Indoor Slip w Bottom Women's Sherpa Blue Star House Memory Outdoor Foam Rubber Pink Anti Slippers Comfort Sole Peach Resistant "url"Peach Rubber Slip Blue Memory Indoor Comfort Sole Women's Sherpa Star House Pink Slippers Resistant Foam Skid w Outdoor Anti Bottom : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Rubber Outdoor Comfort Sherpa Bottom Indoor Blue w Women's House Memory Slip Pink Sole Peach Slippers Star Resistant Anti Foam Skid }
    ],
    "require": {
        Star Indoor w Comfort Peach Resistant Anti House Blue Women's Pink Sole Rubber Slip Sherpa Bottom Skid Outdoor Foam Slippers Memory "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Anti Women's Sherpa Comfort Memory House Sole Rubber Bottom Slippers w Blue Star Indoor Pink Foam Peach Slip Skid Resistant Outdoor ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Sherpa Foam Resistant Slip Indoor Women's w Rubber Blue Comfort Anti Bottom Sole House Outdoor Pink Star Slippers Memory Skid Peach }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Rubber Peach Blue Foam Resistant Slippers Indoor Bottom Memory House Women's Anti Slip Sherpa Outdoor w Skid Star Pink Sole Comfort 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.
