cant seem to decipher how to add this custom branch to our composer, file. I've got a branch with a unmerged bugfix on it

i've added

    "repositories": [
            "type": "git",
            "url": ""


"backpack/settings": "dev-fix-artisan-clash",

then deleted the vendor/backpack/settings and ran composer install again, but its still pulling in the master branch

what on earth am i doing wrong? anything obvious?

@OwenMelbz composer update ?

Yeah, composer install reads lock file
it probably warned you also that your composer.json and composer.lock file are out of sync
