SASS, Ecmascript6 and Typescript in Adobe AEM projects

What are the options that I have if I want to use SASS (SCSS) and Ecmascript 6 (or even Typescript) in my projects? Is there a tool to transpile SASS, Ecmascript6 or Typescript that I can use with Adobe AEM?

Thanks,

Fernando

Hi,

You could use maven plugin to transpile sass files and then build the code and deploy to aem.

Hope this helps.

Hi fernandou23761826

You can choose to configure the preprocessors configuration per client library or system-wide.

  • Add the multivalue properties CSS processor and jsProcessor on the client library node
  • Or define the system default configuration via the HTML Library Manager OSGi configuration

Reference: Using Client-Side Libraries

For LESS, AEM gives oob support but for sass, you need to make changes in AEM codebase so that sass written file can be converted to CSS file client library during code compilation.

Reference:

Hi Guys,

I think the jsProcessor attribute is not working on AEM 6.4.

I've tried lots of things and was not able to make it work.

Also, in this thread there is a conclusion it is not working on 6.4: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2569095

I want a processor that transforms Typescript or ECMA6 into ECMA5.
