Web Resources Client Library

A web resources client library can be defined at the template level (see ./appResourcesClientlib component policy configuration). This client library has to provide the following structure:

  "<client library folder>": {
    "jcr:primaryType": "cq:ClientLibraryFolder",
    "allowProxy": true,
    "categories": [
      "<category name>"
    "css.txt": {"jcr:primaryType": "nt:file"},
    "resources": {
      "jcr:primaryType": "nt:folder"

The following files are expected in the resources folder, for maximum compatibility:

Client Libraries

The component provides a client library category that contains the JavaScript required to enable social sharing. It should be added to a relevant site client library using the embed property.

It also provides a editor client library category that includes JavaScript handling for dialog interaction. It is already included by its edit dialog.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
