Avatar

Level 2

I'm working on a project in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) and need some guidance on managing and optimizing client libraries. How do you efficiently organize and include client libraries in AEM components, and what best practices do you follow to ensure a smooth development and deployment process?

Hello @aem101 ,

To manage clientlib you can follow these tips:

  • Define your component clientlib with category, exactly the definition of the component category
  • For a higher environment, build it in a minified format.
  • Load clientlib in gzip encoded format, which will reduce your file size
  • Avoid creating a large clientlib, which will be a blocker of page load.
  • Try to load the js file in defer=true attribute, this will help to load your HTML first.
  • If possible Conditional Load your clientlib [Separate it by Author/Publish]

Again for your architectural discussion, you can follow this thread:  https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-experience-manager/clientlibs/m-p/586477/high...
