Important notes on manifests

It's important to note a few things when generating manifests...

  1. "Gateway error" on Viewblock

    If you inspect the transaction ID of your manifest.json file on Viewblock, then you will see a "Gateway error" under the data section. This is expected, as the file Content-Type: application/x.arweave-manifest+json (specific to manifests) is not recognised by ViewBlock, and so there's nothing to worry about here. For more information, you can refer to Arweave's Path Manifest spec here.

  1. Missing index.html file in root or else

    If you don't have an index.html file in your vault, then if you put the[txid] link for your manifest file in a browser it will return "Not Found". To confirm that the manifest data was actually uploaded to Arweave, you can use the raw endpoint:[txid]
