    Vite Plugin OX Manifests

    A vite plugin that generates a manifest.json for code loading inside an App Suite UI plugin environment.


    npm install "@open-xchange/vite-plugin-ox-manifests"
    yarn add "@open-xchange/vite-plugin-ox-manifests"

    How to use

    // in the vite.config.js
    import vitePluginOxManifests from '@open-xchange/vite-plugin-ox-manifests'
    return {
      plugins: [vitePluginOxManifests()]


    You can provide the following options to the plugin:

    • watch <boolean> If set to true, it will watch any changes to manifest.json files and will automatically reload the vite-dev-server. Default: true
    • entryPoints <string> | <glob pattern> Convenience method to specify additional entry points for the production build. The glob pattern will be resolved and injected into the build.input options of vite. Can be specified as a glob-pattern. Default: undefined
    • manifestsAsEntryPoints <boolean> If set to true, this will inject every entrypoint that is defined by a manifest.json file into the build.input options of vite. Default: true
    • autoloadSettings <boolean> If set to true, this plugin tries to auto-detect files that export settings. Prerequisites are, that the file imports Settings from the io.ox/core/settings module and have a named export called settings. Default true
    • supportedEntryExtensions <string[]> This array defines the extensions, that are to expect as entry points. For example, if a manifest.json have "path": "index", it will look for index.js, index.mjs or index.ts next to the manifest.json. Default: ['js', 'mjs', 'ts']
    • meta <object> An object that will be translated into a meta.json file in the root directory.


    Autoload settings

    If autoload settings is enabled, the settings modules have to look like the following:

    // import from the core settings module
    import { Settings } from '$/io.ox/core/settings'
    // named export 'settings'
    export const settings = new Settings('test', () => {})

    How to test

    yarn test
