Code Climate Issues



This project is a unified collection of AEM/CQ code generated by the AEM consulting practice.


This project uses Maven for building. Common commands:

From the root directory, run mvn -PautoInstallPackage clean install to build the bundle and content package and install to a CQ instance.

From the bundle directory, run mvn -PautoInstallBundle clean install to build just the bundle and install to a CQ instance.

Using with VLT

To use vlt with this project, first build and install the package to your local CQ instance as described above. Then cd to content/src/main/content/jcr_root and run

vlt --credentials admin:admin checkout -f ../META-INF/vault/filter.xml --force http://localhost:4502/crx

Once the working copy is created, you can use the normal vlt up and vlt ci commands.

Specifying CRX Host/Port

The CRX host and port can be specified on the command line with: mvn -Dcrx.port=5502
