Archiving Site Resources

Although a sitemap.json is the recommended approach for including resources with a theme, you can also export your site’s data in a LAR (Liferay Archive) file. A LAR file is version-specific; it won’t work on any version of Liferay DXP other than the one from which it was exported. This approach does, however, require less configuration, since it does not require a sitemap or other files. So, if you’re using the exported resources in the same version of Liferay DXP and it’s not for a theme on Liferay Marketplace, you may prefer a LAR file.

To create an archive.lar, export the contents of a site using the site scope. Then place the archive.lar file in your theme’s [theme-name]/src/WEB-INF/src/resources-importer folder. A LAR archive does not require a sitemap.json file or any other files in your [theme-name]/src/WEB-INF/src/resources-importer folder.
