An assetmanager module for expressive.


By Wesley Overdijk and Marco Pivetta

Build Status Latest Stable Version


This module is intended for usage with a default directory structure of a ZendSkeletonApplication. It provides functionality to load assets and static files from your module directories through simple configuration. This allows you to avoid having to copy your files over to the public/ directory, and makes usage of assets very similar to what already is possible with view scripts, which can be overridden by other modules. In a nutshell, this module allows you to package assets with your module working out of the box.


  1. Require assetmanager:
./composer.phar require rwoverdijk/assetmanager
#when asked for a version, type "1.*".


Take a look at the wiki for a quick start and more information. A lot, if not all of the topics, have been covered in-dept there.

Sample module config:

return array(
    'asset_manager' => array(
        'resolver_configs' => array(
            'collections' => array(
                'js/d.js' => array(
            'paths' => array(
                __DIR__ . '/some/particular/directory',
            'map' => array(
                'specific-path.css' => __DIR__ . '/some/particular/file.css',
        'filters' => array(
            'js/d.js' => array(
                    // Note: You will need to require the classes used for the filters yourself.
                    'filter' => 'JSMin',
        'view_helper' => array(
            // Note: You will need to require the factory used for the cache yourself.
            'cache'        => 'Application\Cache\Redis',
        'caching' => array(
            'js/d.js' => array(
                'cache'     => 'Apc',

Please be careful, since this module will serve every file as-is, including PHP code.
