Hello, thanks for the tutorial. It's very good. But I have a problem that it's not working . The AEM version that I'm using is 6.4, I think I should be using 6.4.2, is that correct? If it is, what can I do with 6.4 version, just write components with React?

Best regards,

Ogün Adsay.

Yes without the ServicePack, the components won't be able to be edited in AEM.  Service Pack 2 is freely available to download and install: https://www.adobeaemcloud.com/content/marketplace/marketplaceProxy.html?packagePath=/content/compani...

Hi,

In Getting Started with the AEM SPA Editor - Chapter 2 - Header Component, can we have the header authorable in AEM so that the author manager can change the text without code change?

Thanks

Hi jtran15 , do you have AEM 6.4 and ServicePack 2 installed?

What happens when you navigate to http://localhost:4502/content/wknd-events/react.model.json ? Does the JSON render as expected?

Hi,

Thank you for responding .

Yes, I have AEM6.4 and Service Pack 2 installed. http://localhost:4502/system/console/status-productinfo  shows Adobe Experience Manager (6.4.2.0).

http://localhost:4502/content/wknd-events/react.model.json returns correct json.

Hi All

I am working on AEM React Integration project. 

I have a requirement where I need to use existing Header and footer component which are the traditional HTL component. All other components would be from react.

However, the content of HTL components is not rendering on the page in the SPA editor project.  Any suggestions?
