AssetManager For Zend Framework

Fork of the original ZF2 Assetmanager By Wesley Overdijk and Marco Pivetta


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 wshafer/assetmanager:2.0.0-beta2


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(
            'cache'            => 'Application\Cache\Redis', // You will need to require the factory used for the cache yourself.
            'append_timestamp' => true,                      // optional, if false never append a query param
            'query_string'     => '_',                       // optional
        'caching' => array(
            'js/d.js' => array(
                'cache'     => 'Apc',

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