The assets in MODX affect the manager, and include core JavaScript and Sass/CSS files.


Source assets can be found in these locations:

  • _build/templates/default/ contains the build workflow, as well as a package.json that is used to import some third party dependencies.
  • _build/templates/default/sass/ contains the source Sass files (in scss format),
  • manager/assets/ contains all manager-related javascript files. The files that are necessary on each page are combined and compressed through the build workflow in _build/templates/default.
