Metadata

Files and folder can be enriched with metadata and displayed. Metadata is stored in a file called <name>.dbmeta.json, where <name> is the exact file (including extension) or folder name. Put it in the same folder as the target file or folder. Metadata is stored in a JSON format specified below.

The *.dbmeta.json files are hidden from the user and cannot be viewed.

{
"description": "A short project description ⭐",
"labels": ["danger:Laravel", "primary:PHP 8", "dark:Hot 🔥"],
"hidden": false,
"password": "mysecurepassword"
}
