Projects deployed across multiple channels often require one-off assets for each channel. For example, a game could be distributed on a website, on Android, or as a Facebook app. As the number of distribution channels increases, it becomes difficult to remember which project assets are meant to be copied to which channel. This command line is intended to help organize files and determine if any are missing.
Define a configuration file for listing project assets and grouping them by channel name.
Provide a command line interface that will answer these questions.
- What assets are required by a channel?
dassets --in [channel name] --in [channel name]
- Do all of the assets exist? Where some files renamed or deleted?
dassets --in [channel name] --missing
- Enable installation via a global npm package.
npm install -g dassets
You can also checkout the repo and then run
npm install -g in the project root.
The project-assets.yml file should contain a list of objects that have "name" and "paths" properties.
name is a string, and
paths is an array. You can generate a new config file using
dassets --create or paste the following in project-assets.yml
- name: development paths: - development.html - name: production paths: - production.html - credentials/auth.json
