Manifest består av metadata för en grupp filer som bildar en enhet.
A manifest file in computing is a file containing metadata for a group of accompanying files that are part of a set or coherent unit. For example, the files of a computer program may have a manifest describing the name, version number, license and the constituting files of the program.
The web app manifest is a simple JSON file that tells the browser about your web application and how it should behave when 'installed' on the user's mobile device or desktop. Having a manifest is required by Chrome to show the Add to Home Screen prompt.
A typical manifest file includes information about the app name, icons it should use, the start_url it should start at when launched, and more.
