The manifest comprises course metadata.

A manifest.yml file needs to exist in every course content and resides at the content root directory.

There is also a representation in JSON format. It is generated automatically by the extension WriteManifest and copied to the output folder.

A manifest.yml is written by course authors while the manifest.json is generated by the converter and used by innoconv-compatible viewers. The included information for both versions differ.
