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.

Maturation process

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.

Incubator

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.

Addons

When modules mature, they are moved to the addons repository.
