Asset Compute Plugin for the Adobe I/O CLI. This plugin supports developing and testing of Asset Compute custom workers.


Further documentation:

Installation and Usage

For interactive use as developer, install this as aio-cli plugin using:

aio plugins:install @adobe/aio-cli-plugin-asset-compute

To list available commands, run

aio asset-compute

See commands for a description of all commands.

When aio asset-compute is run inside a project directory with a package.json with the plugin installed as devDependency (see below), then it will use exactly that dependency version (available since 1.4.0). This ensures test execution behaves the same as with aio app test in e.g. CI builds, even if the plugin version installed by the developer in aio is different. In other directories it will simply use its own command implementations.

Use as project Dependency

Inside Asset Compute App Builder projects, @adobe/aio-cli-plugin-asset-compute will also be present as npm devDependency. This is used by aio app test and aio app run.

Projects created using aio app init with the Asset Compute Worker generator will automatically be include this dependency in their package.json, so no separate installation is required.

In case of creating a project setup from scratch, install it as devDependency using:

npm install --save-dev @adobe/aio-cli-plugin-asset-compute

Then it can be used with aio app test or npm test by adding a test script to the package.json. Or an aio app hook such as post-app-run. Note that the bin name is adobe-asset-compute in this case:

    "scripts": {
        "test": "adobe-asset-compute test-worker",
        "post-app-run": "adobe-asset-compute devtool"

Debugging workers

If you use the debug library inside your worker code, you can enable it in test-worker and run-worker commands by setting the WORKER_DEBUG environment variable just like the standard DEBUG variable:

WORKER_DEBUG=mystuff aio asset-compute test-worker


aio asset-compute devtool

Starts the Asset Compute Developer Tool

  $ aio asset-compute devtool

  -v, --verbose  Verbose output
  --port=port    [default: 9000] Http port of the Asset Compute Developer Tool Server
  --version      Show version

aio asset-compute run-worker FILE RENDITION

Run worker from local project using Docker

  $ aio asset-compute run-worker FILE RENDITION

  FILE       Path to input file for worker

  RENDITION  Path where to create output rendition.
             Single file for single rendition, or directory to create multiple renditions, in which case the full
             parameter json including rendition names must be provided using --data.

  -P, --paramFile=paramFile  Path to parameter json file.
  -a, --action=action        Worker to run. Use action name from manifest. Not required if there is only one.
  -d, --data=data            Complete input parameters as JSON string. Allows multiple renditions.
  -p, --param=param          <key> <value> - Set parameters for rendition, can be used multiple times
  -v, --verbose              Verbose output
  --version                  Show version

aio asset-compute test-worker [TESTCASE]

Run tests from local project

  $ aio asset-compute test-worker [TESTCASE]

  TESTCASE  Test case(s) to run. Supports glob patterns. If not set, runs all tests.

  -a, --action=action     Worker to test. Use action name from manifest. If not set, runs tests for all workers.
  -u, --updateRenditions  Replace expected renditions of failing test cases with the generated rendition.
  -v, --verbose           Verbose output
  --version               Show version

  $ aio asset-compute tw
