Provisioning your trial environment will take up to 30 minutes, so sign up first then read on for an overview of what you can do with it. Once ready, you’ll be presented with 6 learning modules that will guide you through AEM’s headless features:
I’ll focus on my personal top 3 below.
The Universal Editor
But is it really live? It’s a live site alright, which can be configured with a query param to fetch data from other AEM environments. You can check out my published changes here: https://ue-trials-app.adobe.net/?publishHost=…
For the technical folks, the frontend React source code of this app can be found on Github.
New Content Fragment tools
The Content Fragment Admin and Editor apps have been completely redesigned to be more intuitive, and enable your authors to independently manage content without development time.
Dig into the module titled Customize content in a sample React app to test drive the new user interfaces, and preview your changes instantly in a beautiful, modern React site built for the fictitious outdoor brand WKND:
Make changes directly to the content — including a swap of the main mountain biker image — then preview them instantly on the site:
Last but not least is a module which explores the GraphQL-based APIs for delivering your precious content directly to your apps and sites, in an optimized manner (thanks to persisted queries). Sticking with the WKND theme, you’ll create a query that extracts your Adventure content based on the model and fragment you created in earlier modules:
But wait, there’s more!
Our hope with providing each trial environment for 30 days is that you’ll go well beyond the learning guide material and build out your own models and content, to truly get a feel for AEM. Since each trial environment is a full AEM as a Cloud Service environment (albeit with no Cloud Manager deployment pipeline), you’re free to explore the many features included in the platform as well.
