How to import the templates from /conf into IntelliJ or VSCode?

Avatar

Level 2

Hi AEM Community, I used the Editable Template to create a new template, and when I'm done, the new template is to be found under /conf in CRXDE. Then I tried to import the new template into an IDE - ideally either IntelliJ or VSCode, but had a hard time doing so.

 

****What I've tried****

I tried to use the VSCode AEM Sync extension which is very nice and did part of the job as shown below. I right-click on jcr_root and do "Import from AEM Server"

it only imported the /content/jcr_root/content, not the /conf

****What I expected - a working example from another project****
What I expected was something like from the WKND project as follows:

****More Info****
If I right-clicked for "Import from AEM Server" the path above jcr_root, I received an error message, that's why doing it on the ui.content level or the src/main/content level isn't an option here

****So my question is****
How can I get the /conf into my IDE?

It doesn't have to be VSCode AEM Sync, if anybody knows how to achieve the same goal with IntelliJ (via e.g. IntelliVault)?

Thank you very much for the reply! I can't reproduce the first step of your success procedure

because the problem on my end is that I don't have /ui.content/src/main/content/conf/<myapp> available in VSCode. I only have /ui.content/src/main/content/content<...>

The import didn't bring /conf in even though it is available in CRXDE. Any suggestion?

Hi,

 

Install "AEM Sync" from Extensions in Marketplace then you will able to see those  "Sync file from AEM" and "Sync file to AEM" options as mentioned by @RajaShankar.

You can follow below videos where you can find step by step details on how to sync code between AEM & Intellij/Visual studio/Eclipse. I always follow this doc and works for me 🙂

for Intellij Repo setup: https://github.com/Adobe-Marketing-Cloud/tools/tree/master/repo#installation 

 

Once you setup Repo, then you can easily sync content between. 

Hope this docs help you.
