App Manifest

An App Manifest is an XML or .txt file that describes the contents of an app. XML App Manifest files can be associated with native apps and TXT files are associated with Progressive Web Apps (PWAs). It outlines essential information like the name of the app, and the location of particular files to the operating system, the app build utilities, as well as any app store where the app is available. For a PWA, the App Manifest also controls the color and orientation of the app shell, the display type and the splash screen.
