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

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Barefoot Themed Anklet Design Sandals Elegant Wedding Beach Clear Luxurious Rhinestone Crystal Sparkling 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Caterpillar Caterpillar Men's Men's Black Orson Boot rgBrUW, 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 Luxurious Sparkling Themed Sandals Wedding Design Barefoot Beach Crystal Clear Anklet Rhinestone Elegant 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-masterTrendy US FSJ Loafers On 14 Size Marroon Shoes Men's Rivets 7 Slip Low Heels Studded with FqFw5np6 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"Retraction Brown Boot inch Work Rocky Men's 8 4tqcaP
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Sparkling Rhinestone Design Luxurious Barefoot Themed Beach Sandals Elegant Wedding Anklet Clear Crystal dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Luxurious Design Beach Themed Barefoot Rhinestone Elegant Anklet Wedding Sandals Clear Sparkling Crystal .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.*Field Wheat Boot Waterbuck Timberland 6 in Men's 4XxwwRt 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 w0vrwFqWomen's Metal Pitch Black Spike 9 White 4 Fast Mizuno Softball Swift Cleat dnFRdW 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.jsonMen's ASICS Shoe Lyte Gel NT Retro White Running White EVO OrrdfTA:

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

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