Welcome to Magnolia Extensions
Extensions are a-la-carte Magnolia add-ons, developed and supported by Magnolia Professional Services. Extensions have typically been developed in close collaboration with customers to meet requirements not covered by the core product. Now you can benefit from these useful features in your projects as well.
Regardless of where the inspiration comes from, a module begins as a project in the incubator repository. Once a module has had an appropriate amount of testing and a track record of success, then it is moved to the addons repository. From there, if the module gains traction and wide spread adoption, it can be moved into the product as an officially supported module.
In order to access the incubator and addons repositories you will need to make some changes to your settings.xml. Here is a sample settings file for EE customers.
The incubator is where new projects start. Users of modules from the incubators repositories have to assume some risk. Report issues in JIRA using the appropriate project. Each page in this documentation will list the JIRA project ID.
When modules mature, they are moved to the addons repository.
The extensions are classified using the following types.
|Solution||A piece (or pieces) for a larger system or package.|
|Connector||A connection to external commercial services.|
|Adapter||A module that allows bridging (i.e. two way communication).|
|Provider||An external integration with Magnolia typically using REST API.|
|Enhancement||A module that expands the internal functions of Magnolia.|
|Visual App||An enhancement which provides an interface through the app paradigm.|
|Jar||A JAR module installed into Magnolia.|
|Light||All functionality is provided by a light module.|
|External||Functionality used with Magnolia but not built on Magnolia.|
