This module lets you store and maintain resources in JCR in the old, pre-Magnolia 5.4 way, which enables you to run templating processing on CSS,JS or other text-based resources, typically with freemarker (FTL).

For new projects, Magnolia encourages you to rather use the new resources system - but we provide this module as an assistance for maintaining existing projects.

This resource system can co-exist in parallel with the new Resource Cascade system introduced in 5.4 with light development, where resources can be provided by file as well as in JCR. But the two resource systems do not interact.

An overview of the two resource systems:

NameAvailability in standard bundleURL for accessFeatures
Resource Cascade (a part of light development)5.4 and greater/.resourcesSupply resoures via classpath, file, or JCR
Processed Resources (legacy)5.3 and earlier/resources

Template processing of resources

Processed resources are stored in the "resources" JCR workspace.


This module provides and installs a new 'Processed Resources' app which allows you to view and optionally edit resource files.

For full documentation on this feature, please consult the Magnolia 5.3 Resources documentation:
