SOLVED

AEM plugin(Eclipse) to Sync UI.frontend

bryantee
Level 1
Level 1

Greetings,

 

I'm new to AEM development and would like to to have my 'ui.frontend' folder to sync with local AEM instance. I followed the Eclipse setup guide from Adobe, so far the 'core', 'ui.apps' and 'ui.content' sync well except 'ui.frontend' yet to setup(does not appear in the Add/Remove in sync setting).

 

May I know what project facets does the 'ui.frontned' belong to and what is the AEM sync directory (e.g. src/main/content/jcr_root for ui.apps)? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Generally ui.frontend is only used to generate/build your front end code (CSS and JS), the generated output or code you will place it in ui.apps clientlibs.

So, it is not required or it is not allowed to add ui.frontend and update directly to the AEM server

 

ui.frontend- (optional) contains the artifacts required to use the Webpack-based front-end build module.

We will commit the code to a source repository (git,bitbucket etc)
