Apache Sling Packager

This module is part of the Apache Sling project.

slingpackager is a nodejs based command line tool alternative to the Content Package Maven Plugin from Adobe or the Content Package Maven Pluging from WCM.IO. It allows to work with content packages intended for any Apache Sling based product using composum as its package manager or Adobe AEM with the CRX package manager.

It covers the following use cases:

  • build a content package form a local folder
  • upload a content package onto a server
  • download a content package from server
  • install a content package on a server
  • list all installed packages on the server
  • uninstall a content package from the server
  • build a content package on the server
  • delete a content package on the server

For an example project using the slingpackager please have a look at the simple-sling-vue-example project.

Installation

To install slingpackager globally use

npm install @apache-sling/slingpackager -g

This will make the packager available as a command line tool on your system. If you'd like to install slingpackager to your project only (or to try it before you commit to a global install), in your project folder, use

npm install @apache-sling/slingpackager --save-dev

You can then execute

npx slingpackager

to run slingpackager in your project.

  --verbose, -v  turn on verbose output

List

slingpackager list

list installed packages

Options:
  --version      Show version number                                   [boolean]
  --help         Show help                                             [boolean]
  --server, -s   server url                   [default: "http://localhost:8080"]
  --user, -u     server credentials in the form username:password
                                                        [default: "admin:admin"]
  --verbose, -v  turn on verbose output

Package

slingpackager package <folder>

create a package

Options:
  --version      Show version number                                   [boolean]
  --help         Show help                                             [boolean]
  --verbose, -v  turn on verbose output
  --destination, -d  Package destination directory. Defaults to current
                     directory.
  --config, -c       Package configuration/properties. Package properties.xml
                     and package name are generated from this. If this option is
                     missing slingpackage will search for
                     slingpackager.config.js in the parent directories.

The <folder> should point to the parent folder of jcr_root and META_INF with your project's content.

Bellow is an example of minimal configuration required for package generation using package command.

module.exports = {
    "vault-properties": {
		"comment": "myapp - UI Apps",
		"entry": {
			"name": "ui.apps",
			"version": "1.0-SNAPSHOT",
			"group": "myapp"
		}
    }
}

This should be placed in the file named slingpackager.config.js anywhere in the folder path passed to package command (we suggest project's root folder). Or path to configuration file can be specified via --config option.

The above example will result in a package file named ui.apps-1.0-SNAPSHOT.zip with the fillowing properties.xml file inside it's META/vault folder.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE properties SYSTEM "http://java.sun.com/dtd/properties.dtd">
<properties>
  <comment>myapp - UI Apps</comment>
  <entry key="name">ui.apps</entry>
  <entry key="version">1.0-SNAPSHOT</entry>
  <entry key="group">themeclean-flex</entry>
  <entry key="createdBy">slingpackager</entry>
  <entry key="acHandling">IGNORE</entry>
  <entry key="allowIndexDefinitions">false</entry>
  <entry key="requiresRoot">false</entry>
  <entry key="path">/etc/packages/myapp/ui.apps-1.0-SNAPSHOT.zip</entry>
</properties>
