Celeste Manifest

The Celeste manifest is not directly integrated with Celeste. In combination with the Disputable base contract however it represents a good standard on how to implement access control for evidence submission. The manifest implements a simple representative system: users can set addresses which are allowed to submit evidence on their behalf in any compatible disputes where they are the challenger / defendant. This is similar to how a lawyer will argue on your behalf in a court of law. The idea behind this is that in the future one may engage actual lawyer like professionals who will argue your case in a Celeste dispute.

By default no one can arbitrarily set anyone else as their representative. The potential representative must first enable clients by using the allowRepresentation method on the manifest.

If you use the Disputable base class you'll by default be using the manifest and will not have to worry about integrating with it. Regardless the manifest itself is documented here to help with integrations, whether it be on the frontend side or via custom smart contract integrations.
