We produce a docker image that is able to serve the compiled assets directly, which is available on Dockerhub.
Nexus Fusion is divided into sections called SubApps. SubApps are separate workspaces that attempt to contain the concerns of disparate users and activities, and provide different access rights for each.
You can learn how to develop your own SubApps to extend Fusion here.
Expect the SubApp feature and its functionality will expand and change in the next releases of Nexus Fusion.
Plugins are ways to render resources. You can find more about them here. It is important to note that the plugin repository is hosted separately from Nexus Fusion. Nexus Fusion will request a Plugin Manifest from this repository at run time, and fetch plugins to render during run time based on a config. Both the plugins, the configuration, and the manifest should be hosted somewhere Nexus Fusion can request it.
