php – How to override others dependencies in composer.json

Questions:

I’m using AliceFixturesBundles and this depends on NelmioAlice and Faker. Dependencies are handled internal as for example:

https://github.com/h4cc/AliceFixturesBundle/blob/master/composer.json

{
    "name": "h4cc/alice-fixtures-bundle",
    "description": "Symfony2 Bundle for loading fixture data with the Alice library.",
    "keywords": ["Symfony2", "Fixtures", "Alice", "Loader", "Doctrine", "ORM", "MongoDB"],
    "type": "symfony-bundle",
    "license": "MIT",
    "authors": [
        {
            "name": "Julius Beckmann",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        }
    ],
    "require": {
        "php": ">=5.3.0",
        "nelmio/alice": "~1.6",
        "doctrine/common": "~2.1",
        "psr/log": "~1.0",
        "symfony/finder": "~2.0"
    },
    "require-dev": {
        "phpunit/phpunit": "~4.0",
        "symfony/framework-bundle": "~2.1",
        "doctrine/orm": "~2.1",
        "doctrine/mongodb-odm": "1.0.*@dev",
        "doctrine/mongodb-odm-bundle": "3.0.*@dev",
        "matthiasnoback/symfony-config-test": "~0.2.1"
    },
    "autoload": {
        "psr-4": {
            "h4cc\AliceFixturesBundle\": ""
        }
    }
}

relies on:

https://github.com/nelmio/alice/blob/master/composer.json

{
    "name": "nelmio/alice",
    "description": "Expressive fixtures generator",
    "keywords": ["fixture", "data", "test", "orm"],
    "type": "library",
    "license": "MIT",
    "authors": [
        {
            "name": "Jordi Boggiano",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        },
        {
            "name": "Tim Shelburne",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        }
    ],
    "require": {
        "php": ">=5.4",
        "fzaninotto/faker": "~1.0",
        "symfony/yaml": "~2.0"
    },
    "require-dev": {
        "doctrine/common": "~2.3",
        "symfony/property-access": "~2.2",
        "phpunit/phpunit": "3.7.*"
    },
    "autoload": {
        "psr-4": { "Nelmio\Alice\": "src/Nelmio/Alice" }
    },
    "extra": {
        "branch-alias": {
            "dev-master": "2.0.x-dev"
        }
    }
}

And my problem is just here, on this line: "fzaninotto/faker": "~1.0",, how do override that line on my composer.json in order to use "fzaninotto/faker": "1.5.*@dev" instead of the one defined?

How to&Answers:

In your own composer.json, you can do this:

{
    "require": {
        "h4cc/alice-fixtures-bundle": "dev/master", //Whatever version you use
        "fzaninotto/faker": "dev-master as 1.0"
    }
}
