ASDF Standard Resources
The included schema and manifest resources made available by the ASDF-standard are described below.
ASDF Standard Schema Definitions
ASDF schemas are arranged into “modules”. All ASDF implementations must support the “core” module, but the other modules are optional.
- Legacy schemas
The ASDF Standard also defines two meta-schemas that are used for validating the ASDF schemas themselves. These schemas are useful references when creating custom schemas (see Designing a new tag and schema).
The following graph shows the dependencies between modules:
ASDF Standard Manifests
The ASDF tags (described by schemas) available under each ASDF standard version are all described by a single manifest document for that ASDF standard version.
