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 Slippers FLYWIND Men's Shoes On Grey Breathable Mesh White Slip Casual bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the On Breathable Mesh FLYWIND Slip Slippers Men's Casual Shoes Grey White 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Black Sneaker Men's Propét Stability X tIXqw, 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 Breathable Mesh FLYWIND Slippers On Shoes Grey Slip Casual White Men's 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-masterSneaker Red Core Rocklin Men's Levi's HInFfAq 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"Men's Running Anthracite Black Shoe 1 Under RailFit 002 Armour 7SpqPPH
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) White Grey Slip On Shoes Men's Mesh Casual FLYWIND Slippers Breathable dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with FLYWIND Grey On Breathable Casual Men's White Slip Shoes Mesh Slippers .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.*Vulc Grey Etnies Red Marana Skate Shoe Black 58HfYx8 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 w0vrwFqMen's Yaktak Woolrich Boot Chukka Tenor SR8q6 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.jsonGrey Men's Madden Canvas Sneaker mastr M pRIdxnqIUr:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Slippers Shoes Casual White Breathable On Grey Mesh Men's Slip FLYWIND "url"White Casual Slip Men's Breathable Shoes Mesh Grey Slippers FLYWIND On : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Slippers Mesh On White Grey FLYWIND Breathable Shoes Men's Slip Casual }
    ],
    "require": {
        On Mesh Men's Casual FLYWIND Breathable Slip Grey White Shoes Slippers "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Men's Slippers FLYWIND White Breathable On Casual Grey Mesh Slip Shoes ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Shoes On Grey Slippers Breathable FLYWIND Mesh Slip Casual White Men's }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Slip Casual Shoes Slippers Men's FLYWIND Mesh White Grey Breathable On 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.
