Editing/Creating manifest.json file

Cameron Asbury asked on December 17, 2019 19:57

I have a client who needs to access a website but as a standalone application when users access the site via phone or tablet. This can easily be done by editing or creating a manifest.json file the website, I however cannot seem to find where I can create or edit this file. The client uses Portal Engine 12 for their site.

Thanks for any help offered! Cameron

Why don't you simply add manifest.json file into the file system in the CMS folder?

I guess best way is :

  • create a new document set route to manifest.json (your probably need to configure something in settings to make it work).
  • clone this document template as ad-hoc template.
  • add web part custom response set output to application/json.
  • create json content in the web part.

A hacky method I found if you can't get access to the file system, you can upload a manifest.txt file through the file page type, and your webpage can read it in as per a normal manifest file. I currently don't have access yet to the file system but I am working on it. Thanks for the responses everyone!
