Dependencies in package.json

The package.json file defines the structure of dependencies and the detailed composition of the system modules.

"ionMetaDependencies": {
  "viewlib": "0.0.1"

Connection using a script

  • if there is no slash in the object name - / => “project-management”, substitute the name in the default path the ION-APP group, i.e the path is //

  • if there is a slash in the object name, it means it’s already set up with the group and just pick up the path to the git with the group and meta, for example for “ION-METADATA/viewlib” the path is //

  • if the version value begins with git+http:// или git+https://, then this is the full path to the external repository. Drop git+ and pull the git.

  • if the version starts with http:// or https://, then this is the full path to the archive. Pull and unpack.

    **Not implemented **, since dapp does not support working with archives.
