The manifest provides the metadata needed for the element to work correctly, both in the editor and when published.

  1. Create a JSON file named manifest.json and save it to the PriceChart root directory.
  2. Add the following properties:
    • manifest = 1
    • version = the version for the app, in this case 1.0.0.
    • elements: =
      • name = Price Chart. This is the name that will be displayed in the sidebar of the editor.
      • path = the subdirectory for the element, in this case files.
      • version = the version for the element, in this case, 1.0.0 (the app and the element can be different versions).

For example:

{
    “manifest”: 1,
    “version”: 1.0.0,
    “elements”:[{
        “name”: “Price Chart”,
        “path”: “files”,
        “version”: 1.0.0
    }]
}
