There are pages of tutorials on creating templates via the web using crx/de ui or the template console and the "templates author" role.

 

However, we need to create page templates which are versioned and distributed as part of the code, and they need to contain custom properties.

 

Does anyone have a handy resource which describes how to new templates via code?

Hi @TB3dock,

 

You can create your own set of templates in the project structure under /app/<project>/components/page.

 

You can commit this code in the code repository, in the ui.apps. Whenever you will deploy the code, these templates will be deployed in the AEM. Here you can maintain multiple versioned templates as per your requirement.

Thank you very much for the responses. I have seen that first link, but it only has how to create templates via the CRX/DE interface, not how to create template-types in code?

Interestingly, the "extending page properties" seems to be adding properties to a component on the page, not on the page its self? Ideally, we would add the propperties to the page template, so that pages get the properties, not a page component. THen we can search for pages with a given property value, rather than searching for components which might belong to all pages?
