Use Composer:

composer require frontpack/composer-assets-plugin

Library requires PHP 5.6.0 or later.


  • composer refresh-assets - refresh files in assets directory

Assets configuration


  • assets-files in section extra
    • true - symlinks whole package directory
    • file path - symlinks one file or directory
    • list of file paths - symlinks files/directories


	"extra": {
		"assets-files": [
  • static/plugin.js - symlinks file to assets/org/package/plugin.js
  • static/plugin.css - symlinks file to assets/org/package/plugin.css
  • static/icons.png - symlinks file to assets/org/package/icons.png

Or you can use simple:

	"extra": {
		"assets-files": "static"

with same result.
