I have created a clientlib and I have included it within the apps->projectname->components->component->clientlibs. As per adobe recommendation I have added allowproxy=true property so that its not exposed directly from the apps folder. When I load the clientlibs its loading from etc.clientlibs and it works fine. But now I have added some images within the clientlibs folder and I have referred those image url's in my css file. I have provided the relative path of the images. However when the page loads its not loading the images. The image url is starting with /etc.clienlibs/imagepath. When I change it to the the absolute url i.e. apps/imagepath in dev tools it works fine. But we should not be exposing directly the apps url rite. If thats the case how to load images via etc.clientlibs ?

A static resource can only be accessed via the proxy, if it resides in a resources folder like a resource below the client library folder.

As an example:

  • You have a clientlib in /apps/myproject/clientlibs/foo
  • You have a static image in /apps/myprojects/clientlibs/foo/resources/icon.png

Then you set the allowProxy property on foo to true.

  • You can then request /etc.clientlibs/myprojects/clientlibs/foo.js
  • You can then reference the image via /etc.clientlibs/myprojects/clientlibs/foo/resources/icon.png

I have read the clientlibs article before but never thought the folder name itself should be 'resources'.

Thanks for the information.

Is it mandatory to declare the folder name as resources. Under the clientlib folder I have created a folder with name as 'img' and it didn't work. But when I changed the name of the folder to resources it started working
