Some extensions might want to include assets like images or JSON files in their source code (note that this is not the same as uploads, which would probably require a filesystem disk).
This is actually very easy to do. Just create an
assets folder at the root of your extension, and place any asset files there. Flarum will then automatically copy those files to its own
assets directory (or other storage location if one is offered by extensions) every time the extension is enabled or
php flarum assets:publish is executed.
If using the default storage driver, assets will be available at
https://FORUM_URL/assets/extensions/EXTENSION_ID/file.path. However, since other extensions might use remote filesystems, we recommend serializing the url to assets you need in the backend. See Flarum's serialization of the logo and favicon URLs for an example.
