The SDL Digital Experience Accelerator (DXA) is a reference implementation of SDL Tridion Sites 9 and SDL Web 8 intended to help you create, design and publish an SDL Tridion/Web-based website quickly.

DXA is available for both .NET and Java web applications. Its modular architecture consists of a framework and example web application, which includes all core SDL Tridion/Web functionality as well as separate Modules for additional, optional functionality.

This repository contains the source code of the DXA Framework and an example .NET web application.

The full DXA distribution (including Content Manager-side items and installation support) is downloadable from the SDL AppStore or the Releases in GitHub. Furthermore, the DXA Framework is available on

To facilitate upgrades, we strongly recommend that you use official, compiled DXA artifacts from Maven Central instead of a custom build. If you really must modify the DXA framework, we kindly request that you submit your changes as a Contribution (see the Branches and Contributions section below).


At SDL we take your investment in Digital Experience very seriously, if you encounter any issues with the Digital Experience Accelerator, please use one of the following channels:

  • Report issues directly in this repository
  • Ask questions 24/7 on the SDL Tridion Community at
  • Contact SDL Professional Services for DXA release management support packages to accelerate your support requirements

Branches and Contributions

We are using the following branching strategy:

  • develop - Represents the latest development version.
  • release/x.y - Represents the x.y Release. If hotfixes are applicable, they will be applied to the appropriate release branch so that the branch actually represents the initial release plus hotfixes.

All releases (including pre-releases and hotfix releases) are tagged.

If you wish to submit a Pull Request, it should normally be submitted on the develop branch so that it can be incorporated in the upcoming release.

Fixes for severe/urgent issues (that qualify as hotfixes) should be submitted as Pull Requests on the appropriate release branch.

Always submit an issue for the problem, and indicate whether you think it qualifies as a hotfix. Pull Requests on release branches will only be accepted after agreement on the severity of the issue. Furthermore, Pull Requests on release branches are expected to be extensively tested by the submitter.

Of course, it is also possible (and appreciated) to report an issue without associated Pull Requests.
