Quick check if resource exists in sightly?


Level 5

Is there a quick tag we can use to check if a resource exists using sightly? So we want to display default image if an image at a path doesn't exist

or is there a jstl/sling OOB tags that do that.

See comparisons in this article:

for example - you can check the prop of a node - in this case a title. 

<div data-sly-test="${ properties['jcr:title'].length > 3 }">Title is longer than 3</div>

Of course - you can always use Java with a Sightly component and check AEM resources via Java

Hope this helps
