In conclusion, the manifest contains a variety of settings and options too numerous to mention in this introductory text. Suggested further reading in the reference about the Nelson manifest answers the following common queries:
- How do I declare a dependency on another unit?
- How do I get alerted when my unit has a problem at runtime?
- How do I expose my service to the outside world?
Now that you have your
.nelson.yml as you want it, add the file to the root of your source repository, and commit it to the
master branch. Nelson will look at the repositories’
master branch when it first attempts to validate your repository is something that is Nelson-compatible. You can check the validity of your manifest definition at anytime without checking in by using the Nelson CLI:
nelson lint manifest.
