AEM Content Fragments are text-based editorial content that may include some structured data elements associated but considered pure content without design or layout information. Content Fragments are typically created as channel-agnostic content, that is intended to be used and re-used across channels, which in turn wrap the content in a context-specific experience.
This video series covers the end-to-end life-cycle of Content Fragments in AEM, from definition to delivery.
- Enabling and defining Content Fragment Models
- Authoring Content Fragments
- Downloading Content Fragments
- Using Content Fragments on web pages
- Exposing Content Fragments as JSON using AEM Content Services
AEM Content Fragments Models, the data schemas of
AEM Configurations must be applied to AEM Assets folder hierarchies to allow their Content Fragment Models to be created as Content Fragments. Content Fragments support a rich form-based authoring experience allowing content to be modeled as a collection of elements.
Content Fragments can have multiple variants, each variant addressing a different use-case (thought, not necessarily channel) for the content.
AEM Content Fragments can be downloaded from AEM Author as a Zip file containing Variants, Elements, and Metadata.
Content Fragments can be used on AEM Sites pages, or in a similar fashion, Experience Fragments, using the AEM WCM Core Components'
Content Fragment components can be styled using AEM's Style System to display the content as needed.
AEM Content Services facilitates the creation of AEM Page-based HTTP end-points that rendition content into a normalized JSON format.
