Using "Publish" to Generate Responsive HTML5 Output: Which Files to Provide to Developer?

I am using the built-in "Publish" feature in FrameMaker 2020 to generate Responsive HTML5 output (context-sensitive). The output is located in the Output Folder that I specify in the Publish panel.

 

In RoboHelp, I used to be able to click "Publish" to send only the output files that the developer needs to check in to the application's code.

 

Is there a similar option (button or setting) somewhere in FM 2020 to deliver only the necessary output files to the developer and, if not, which files do I need to manually copy and deliver?

It's the files inside that folder (not the folder name itself) that need to be maintained in relative reference to each other - if you look inside any of the HTML files with links, you'll see a bunch of  \\...\..\ type of referencing.

I don't think that RH Publish function ever made it over to the create-direct-from-FM model. Just send them all the files in your created Output folder.

Thank you. That folder is automatically named "Responsive HTML5."I don't see a way to specify the name of that folder before generating output, so will I break anything if I manually rename it afterward?
