Seeking AEM6.5/Maven tutorial other than WKND

Avatar

Level 5

I tried for days and cannot get WKND set up properly in my local AEM 6.5 instance on my Windows 10 machine. Is there another, smaller tutorial where I can learn how to use Maven and AEM. Both are new to me. My AEM is deployed in Docker (https://hub.docker.com/r/aemdesign/aem). Thank you for any suggestions.

For WKND project to be set up, we just need to download and install the package.

  1. Download the latest release from https://github.com/adobe/aem-guides-wknd/releases
    1. aem-guides-wknd.all-x.x.x.zip: AEM as a Cloud Service, default build
    2. aem-guides-wknd.all-x.x.x-classic.zip: AEM 6.5.x+
  2. Go to CRX package manager http://localhost:4502/crx/packmgr/
  3. Click on "Upload Package" button, select the package and click OK
  4. Select on the uploaded package. Click on Install

Once the package is installed, WKND content should be accessible.

 

Also, please sure that the WKND package is compatible with the AEM version. It would be available in release notes like this

When I navigate to it (http://localhost:4502/editor.html/content/wknd/us.html), the page is broken with no CSS styling or images. I just get the globe at top left, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram links, and the footer.
