Each app or accessory on UBOS has a ubos-manifest.json file, which contains the meta-data that allows UBOS to correctly deploy, undeploy, backup, restore, upgrade etc. the app or accessory. It optionally also contains human-readable information about the package. This file augments the information in the PKGBUILD file used by the pacman package manager that UBOS invokes.
This section describes the UBOS manifest and how to use it.
