The file structure of an agent is fixed.
The top level directory has the agent's name. Below is a
yaml configuration file, then directories containing the connections, protocols, and skills developed by the developer. The connections, protocols and skills from other authors are located in
vendors and sorted by author. Finally, there are files containing the private keys of the agent.
The developer can create new directories where necessary but the core structure must remain the same.
The CLI tool provides a way to scaffold new connections, protocols and skills in the required directory structure for agents. See the instructions for that here.
