Manifest File Troubles

So, I’m about a step away from extension development and I was wondering if someone could shed some light on creating the manifest file. I think that is the only thing stopping me from right now, but I could be wrong.


This is a screenshot of what the link looks like. I know this isn’t correct I’m not sure how to proceed from here. The step yarn create-manifest -t panel -o ..\panel.json is confusing me. Does it create the manifest a folder above where the rig is? Do I have to move it into the hello world folder or somewhere else?

If anyone could give me any advice it would be highly appreciated.

You can store the manifest wherever you want - this will contain the relative pathways for where your assets are hosted - check the JSON file for the specifics. At least for Hello World you just need to make sure you’re referencing the proper path - which if you’re running in Local Mode will be the local folder.

If you’re still having trouble, I’d recommend checking out the next iteration of the Developer Rig (due to release next week)- go to to clone/download a zip. Caveats - it’s still being tested and is not a release candidate yet (the docs haven’t been updated either). But, for the problems you are having, it should hopefully simplify things. Once you download it, just click the run script to make sure your rig and dependencies are configured, navigate to the root of the rig and type yarn start. You should be able to set up your project all within the rig, and your manifest is taken care of for you.

Good luck!
