Base Assets
    XOOPS Core uses the base assets for common system wide assets, such as jQuery, jQueryUI, locale and Bootstrap assets
    Themes can add to the base assets using theme_onload.php
    Modules may want to add their common assets to the base asset
    Browser cache use is improved if the same base asset definition is used for many pages
Accepts a unique asset name Accepts an array of one or more asset file specifications Optionally accepts a string of comma separated filter names Results in creating an asset reference that can be specified in asset arrays in place of a file specification

Name Assets

Named assets allow symbolic reference to commonly used assets (i.e. “jquery”) Named assets can be given additional filters
Using setNamedAsset does not create the asset, it just records the name and definition
To use an asset named “jquery” include an asset name of “@jquery” in an asset list

Smarty Assets Tag

The Smarty block plugin allows assets to be defined in templates. Full syntax:
Assets Tag Argument:
comma separated list of assets to process.
type of output, “css” or “js”
true to enable debug mode, default is false
list of filters to apply, if not specifed will use default filters for output type
smarty variable to assign asset path, defaults to “asset_url”

Behind the Scenes

    Xoops\Core\Assets.php handles communication with the Assetic library
    Xoops object establishes a single instance of Assets class, and XoopsTheme references it
    Configuration of Assets class is in xoops_path/configs/system_assets_prefs.yml, but it normally should not need to be changed
To handle fonts and images in some special circumstances, a file copy function is provided.
This method copies files to the asset directory. Copying is normally only needed for fonts or images when they are referenced by a relative URL in a stylesheet, or are located outside of the web root, as might be the case of a file asset located in a vendor package.

Turning on Debug

    Easiest way is to include ASSET_DEBUG=1 in the URL, i.e. index.php?ASSET_DEBUG=1
    Add this call to your code:
    Add debug=true to a Smarty assets tag
    Any of these will turn off any filters prefixed with a question mark (by default cssmin and jsmin)
