The Addons Directory

The addons directory is where all addons not included in the composer.json file should be kept.

**Note:** Typically addons in the addons directory are committed to your project repository.

Addon Directory Structure

Just like composer packages PyroCMS addons have a vendor slug that is included in their path. Addons also include the site's application reference and the addon's type in it's full path.

addons/{application}/{vendor}/{addon}-{type}

An example could be:

addons/your_site/anomaly/documentation-module

Sharing Addons Between Applications

All addons in the composer.json file will be available for all applications in your PyroCMS installation.

You can also share addons by placing them in the addons/shared folder.

addons/shared/anomaly/documentation-module
