Templating Kit (MTK) is a small set of ready-to-use component, area and
page templates, that supplies the basic functionality that is common
across websites. The templates are designed to be flexible, with dialog
options that enable them to fit many use cases without development. The
MTK templates can be used
as is, modified to suit your projects
needs, or simply used as helpful examples of best-practice Magnolia
templating. The MTK is intentionally small so that developers can learn
it quickly. CSS is kept to a minimum to enable developers to easily
integrate their own CSS or frameworks.
In addition to the standard maven module, the MTK is also available as a light module for easy access to the files. To get the latest version, see the download area on the release notes pages.
To experiment with MTK or Magnolia templating, put the unzipped MTK light module in Magnolia’s resource directory, and make changes to the files. Due to Magnolia’s resource loading mechanism, these files will be used instead of the ones in the Java classpath provided by the Maven module.
Maven is the easiest way to install the module. Add the following to your bundle:
<dependency> <groupId>info.magnolia.templating</groupId> <artifactId>magnolia-templating-kit</artifactId> <version>1.5.3</version> </dependency>
<dependency> <groupId>info.magnolia.templating</groupId> <artifactId>magnolia-templating-essentials-models</artifactId> <version>1.5.3</version> </dependency>
