Many people want to use downloaded extensions in their own way. As for me most of the extensions require me to correct Yii::import() instructions inside their source code. All these extensions are directory dependent. To avoid the situation described above, I suggest to implement pseudo-anonymous aliases:

Yii2: How to create/develop a new extension using Composer locally without version control or Git

Created about a month ago by Wade ShulerHow-tos0 comments – viewed 3,932 times – ( +1 ) – version 2.0
Using a version control system, like Git, is nice. However, when building an extension from scratch and loading it via Composer, it adds a lot of pain in the butt steps. You have to commit your changes, update composer to pull them over, then notice there is an error, fix, commit, update. repeat.. I don't want all my baby steps under Git. Sure, I could edit my commit history, but c'mon. Just let me code! I will put it under version control once I get a baseline created. This guide will show you how to setup your composer.json to load a local directory (everything inside, live). You make a change, save the file, refresh the page, boom.
