Adding/Removing Files

When creating new files, these must be added to the manifest. Run bin/generate-manifest.php to update this.

  • Run composer run-script regenerate in this project's root directory to run the asset regeneration script.
  • Use git status and git diff to validate that the files were updated as expected.
