The tutorial is designed to work with AEM as a Cloud Service and is backwards compatible with AEM 6.5.4+ and AEM 6.4.8+.
All of the tutorial code can be found on GitHub.
The latest code base is available as downloadable AEM Packages.
Before starting this tutorial, you’ll need the following:
Basic familiarity with React
While not required, it is beneficial to have a basic understanding of developing traditional AEM Sites components.
Local Development Environment
A local development environment is necessary to complete this tutorial. Screenshots and video are captured using the AEM as a Cloud Service SDK running on a Mac OS environment with Visual Studio Code as the IDE. Commands and code should be independent of the local operating system, unless otherwise noted.
