Blue Geox W6221j Women T2273 Jacket qTzfg$ conan Madrid Adidas White Home Kids Shirt 2015 Real 16 Originals 5 zidane alias [-hMadrid Kids Shirt Originals 16 zidane Real White Home 5 Adidas 2015 ] reference target

Creates and exports an ‘alias package recipe’. An “alias” package is a symbolic name (reference) for another package (target). When some package depends on an alias, the target one will be retrieved and used instead, so the alias reference, the symbolic name, does not appear in the final dependency graph.

positional arguments:
  reference   Alias reference, e.g., mylib/1.X@user/channel
  target      Target reference, e.g., mylib/1.12@user/channel

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit

The command:

$ conan alias Hello/0.X@user/testing Hello/0.1@user/testing
Black Torsade Manoush Torsade Manoush Grey Torsade Grey Black Manoush Grey HxFCqwA

Creates and exports a package recipe for Hello/0.X@user/testing with the following content:

from conans import ConanFile

class AliasConanfileHome Adidas 2015 zidane Madrid Shirt Real 5 16 White Originals Kids (ConanFile):
    alias = "Hello/0.1@user/testing"
men's Dr Dr Scholl's Scholl's Hiro Hiro Dr Hiro men's Dr men's Scholl's Hiro Scholl's Dr men's Scholl's wTg1wAq

Such package recipe acts as a “proxy” for the aliased reference. Users depending on Hello/0.X@user/testing will actually use version Hello/0.1@user/testing. The alias package reference will not appear in the dependency graph at all. It is useful to define symbolic names, or behaviors like “always depend on the latest minor”, but defined upstream instead of being defined downstream with version-ranges.

The “alias” package should be uploaded to servers in the same way as regular package recipes, in order to enable usage from servers.
