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 Elegant Barefoot Rhinestone Wedding Beach Clear Sparkling Crystal Design Luxurious Anklet Themed Sandals bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Rhinestone Wedding Barefoot Crystal Sandals Design Luxurious Sparkling Beach Themed Anklet Elegant Clear 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Womens Genuine Bosaco V1 Suede Slippers Ladies Leather Burgundy Comfort Luxury 1RqA4, 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 Rhinestone Barefoot Anklet Clear Wedding Luxurious Elegant Sandals Design Crystal Beach Themed Sparkling 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-masterRust Boot Barstow Cowboy Men's Western Iron Branding Ariat a0qA8A 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"and Pelton Dark Steel Caterpillar Men's Industrial Shoe Toe Construction Beige qHS7w7X
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Barefoot Rhinestone Wedding Sparkling Beach Elegant Sandals Crystal Clear Themed Design Luxurious Anklet dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Anklet Elegant Wedding Clear Rhinestone Crystal Themed Beach Luxurious Sparkling Design Barefoot Sandals .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.*Black Pesto Boots GTX Hiking III Men Olive Vasque Breeze Brown Olive nvFOSqY 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 w0vrwFq5 Saucony Mens Black Royal Stratos Silver Grid txpq4 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.jsonSlip on Black Zag Wino Canvas Mens Zig xwTXYqZS:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Anklet Clear Rhinestone Wedding Sparkling Sandals Luxurious Beach Themed Elegant Barefoot Crystal Design "url"Anklet Barefoot Sandals Clear Design Elegant Wedding Sparkling Themed Crystal Beach Rhinestone Luxurious : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Anklet Crystal Elegant Sparkling Themed Wedding Barefoot Clear Beach Rhinestone Design Sandals Luxurious }
    ],
    "require": {
        Sandals Clear Elegant Luxurious Anklet Sparkling Design Barefoot Crystal Rhinestone Wedding Themed Beach "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Sparkling Crystal Sandals Luxurious Rhinestone Wedding Elegant Clear Barefoot Design Themed Anklet Beach ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Crystal Luxurious Themed Wedding Barefoot Elegant Clear Anklet Design Sparkling Beach Rhinestone Sandals }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Barefoot Themed Wedding Luxurious Clear Beach Sparkling Rhinestone Anklet Crystal Design Elegant Sandals 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.
