A Rug archive is a packaged version of a project that contains Rugs. Rug archives are created using the rug install CLI command. A Rug archive contains all of the source code from the original project, the necessary parts of the project’s .atomist directory, and archive metadata, based on the contents of the project’s .atomist/package.json file. See Rug project for more details on the contents of the .atomist directory and package.json file.
