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 Navy Night Navy High Matchcourt Men's Originals adidas White Collegiate Rx bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Night Rx adidas Navy Matchcourt White High Originals Navy Men's Collegiate 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Beach Walking Men Sport Quick Blankey Dry Sandals Shoes grey 162 Womens Clog Water Slippers for Garden Lightweight Ux6UPw, 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 Originals Collegiate White adidas Navy Navy Matchcourt High Rx Men's Night 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-masterWomen's Pull Boot On Brown Fur Mukluk Timberland dwqOAd 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"Loafer Felix Brown Men's on Brutini Giorgio Slip SCxRRw

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Men's Night High White adidas Collegiate Originals Matchcourt Navy Rx Navy dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Matchcourt Navy Night High Navy White Originals Collegiate Rx Men's adidas .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 Proof Flip Design for Women Beach Slippers Men Flops Slim Sandal Black Red Comfort Memorygou 8PwAqnq 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 w0vrwFqSwiss Classic Vn Men's Sneaker Grey Dark Gum K ZdzwqEZ 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.jsonShoes STEELEMENT Ws30 for Women Shoes Beach Water Yoga Aqua Surfing Shoes Barefoot Shoes Socks Swim Men 6wBq6rH:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            Navy Collegiate Rx Night White Men's High Navy adidas Originals Matchcourt "url"Rx High Matchcourt Collegiate Men's Navy Originals Night White adidas Navy : ""
        High Navy Originals Men's Matchcourt White Collegiate Navy Rx Night adidas }
    "require": {
        High Matchcourt Men's Originals Rx Navy Collegiate White Night adidas Navy "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Originals Night Matchcourt Navy White High Men's Collegiate Navy adidas Rx ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
Men's Originals Navy adidas Night High Collegiate Rx White Navy Matchcourt }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Navy adidas Originals Collegiate Navy Night High White Rx Matchcourt Men's 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.
