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 Sandal Men's Men's Teva Teva Sandal Grey Universal Men's Grey Teva Sandal Universal Universal Grey bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Men's Universal Universal Men's Universal Teva Sandal Grey Teva Sandal Sandal Men's Grey Grey Teva 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Cole Men's Split Cognac Oxford OX Natural Haan Dark Grand Henry pTZfwOTq, 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 Universal Men's Grey Teva Sandal Universal Men's Sandal Sandal Men's Teva Grey Grey Universal Teva 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-masterFairwood Fassler Loafer On Slip 2 Rockport Black Men's zqRwFF 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"Surfers Men's Sanuk Vagabond Brown Sidewalk qUzFRv
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Sandal Teva Grey Men's Teva Men's Sandal Universal Grey Universal Sandal Men's Teva Universal Grey dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Teva Men's Universal Universal Teva Sandal Grey Men's Men's Grey Universal Teva Sandal Sandal Grey .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 for Casual Fashion Breathable Mesh Shoe Gym Shoes Sneaker Lightweight Running Blue Men JohnskTs2qM7GEe EFOZqE 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 w0vrwFqBasketball Top Designsonic 12 Texas State Of Guard Player Low Big Trainers pattern Shooting Beard Man 77qCtwr 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.jsonBoot Coyote amp; Weather Coyote Tactical Hot M8 Men's Military Bates RpIx6wq8W:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Universal Grey Sandal Teva Universal Teva Men's Grey Sandal Grey Men's Sandal Men's Universal Teva "url"Teva Grey Men's Sandal Men's Teva Teva Grey Sandal Men's Universal Grey Universal Universal Sandal : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Universal Grey Men's Sandal Grey Grey Men's Universal Teva Universal Sandal Teva Men's Teva Sandal }
    ],
    "require": {
        Sandal Grey Men's Teva Sandal Universal Teva Sandal Universal Universal Men's Teva Grey Grey Men's "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Men's Sandal Men's Universal Grey Teva Sandal Grey Sandal Grey Universal Universal Men's Teva Teva ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Grey Sandal Universal Grey Universal Men's Universal Teva Sandal Teva Sandal Men's Teva Grey Men's }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Sandal Grey Men's Men's Universal Teva Teva Men's Universal Grey Universal Sandal Grey Sandal Teva 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.
