In the cases where dumping the content needs some mangling or organizing
one would take advantage of the core functionalities available to plugins
such as: filesets, stage, snap and organize

For example:

parts:
  my-part:
    source: local-source/
    plugin: dump
    organize:
      '*.png' : images/
      launch.wrapper: usr/bin/launcher
    prime:
      - -README*

See common keywords for more information about these keywords.

For examples, search GitHub for projects already using the plugin.

This is a snapcraft plugin. See Snapcraft plugins and Supported plugins for further details on how plugins are used.
