AEM Content Fragments, CF, are units of reusable and modular content in AEM that can be managed and shared across multiple pages and digital channels. They allow content to be created and managed independently of the pages and templates that use them, making it easier to maintain consistent and up-to-date content across multiple channels. CF’s can be text, images, videos, interactive elements, or any other type of digital content. They provide a flexible and scalable way to manage content in AEM, improving the speed and efficiency of content creation and management.
CF also support headless architecture, where the content can be consumed and displayed through APIs without the need for a user interface. This allows organizations to create and manage content in AEM, and then surface it in a variety of different channels and applications, such as websites, mobile apps, and voice assistants. AEM’s content services utilize this functionality to make it easy for developers to retrieve and display CF’s in their applications. This provides organizations with a flexible and scalable way to manage content across multiple channels and touchpoints, improving the overall user experience and the efficiency of content management.
In addition to its technical capabilities, AEM CF’s are also designed to be author-friendly. The CF Model Editor is easy to use and allows authors to create and manage CF’s without needing technical expertise. This helps to reduce the dependency on developers and improve the speed and efficiency of content creation and management. The editor provides a simple and intuitive interface for authors to create and manage CF’s, including text, images, videos, and other digital assets. This makes it easier for organizations to keep their content up-to-date and consistent across multiple channels and touchpoints.
