Assets Manifest¶

We have three different types of asset manifests:

• Local asset manifest
• Root asset manifests
• Normal asset manifests

Asset manifests are loaded in the order described above, and duplicate names will be ignored.

Note

Since duplicate names are ignored, the local asset manifest can be used to override other asset manifests.

The asset manifests definition consists of a listing of a name and a repository, and are listed in a .assets.json:

//_assets.json
[
{
"name": "<vendor-name>/<asset-name>",
"repository": "https://<url-to-repo>.git"
}
]


Where

• vendor-name is alpha-numeric and may contain '-' and '_'.
• asset-name is alpha-numeric and may contain '-' and '_'.
• repository is a git url (may be private).

Local Asset Manifest¶

Local Manifests are added on a per project basis. By defining a .assets.json file in the root of your project we can add new packages available to that project only.

Root Asset Manifest¶

The root manifest contains assets that are defined by the root registry.

Normal Asset Manifest¶

The normal manifests are assets defined by normal registries.

Note

To get your own assets included in the root or normal manifest, you can setup a pull request to get it validated!
