In category theory and descent theory, Grothendieck however introduced a notion of cofibered category or cofibration, whose definition is categorically dual to that of a fibered category and based on the generalization of the universal property of coCartesian squares; however it does not correspond to the extension property in topology, but to a lifting property, like for fibrations. For that reason, Gray suggested (and this is to some extent adopted in $n$lab) to call such categories opfibrations. In the quasicategorical setup, the generalizations of fibered categories are called Cartesian fibrations, and the generalizations of op/co-fibered categories are called coCartesian fibrations. In the $1$-categorical setup, the coCartesian arrows in op/co-fibrations are indeed the ones which complete coCartesian squares in the special and most important case of domain opfibrations.
