    Hi,
    in our team all members use manifest.json in the "Packages" folder. This contains Github links to our private packages for a project.
    However, I don't want to use the Github version of the packages, but the one I have locally, since I work on the packages in parallel. So I am looking for a way to override the github links to local directories without entering the local paths in my manifest.json. Because otherwise I always have to be careful when committing to git not to commit the manifest.json as well. I imagine something like a local.json, whose content is always executed after the manifest.json. This local.json could then be ignored by git using gitignore. I think I've seen something similar with npm. For my personal programs I use such a configuration system for a long time and it is very practical.

    Thank you in advance

    Thank you for your post :) There's nothing in place to allow what you want to do here but the team will raise this in future discussions to see what we can do going forward.
