What is CRXDE

CRXDE stands for Content Repository Extreme/Development Environment. CRXDE Lite is embedded into AEM and enables you to perform standard development tasks in the browser. With CRXDE Lite, you can create a project, create and edit files (like .jsp and .java), folders, templates, components, dialogs, nodes, properties and bundles while logging and integrating with SVN(Subversion).

Getting Started with CRXDE Lite

AEM CRXDE structure

To get started with CRXDE Lite, proceed as follows:

  1. Install AEM.
  2. In your browser, enter https://<host>:<port>/crx/de . By default it is https://localhost:4502/crx/de .
  3. Enter your username and password . By default it is admin and admin .
  4. Click OK .

CRXDE Lite is recommended when

  • do not have direct access to the AEM server
  • develop an application by extending or modifying the out-of-the-box components and Java bundles
  • when you do not need a dedicated debugger, code completion and syntax highlighting.
It is recommended to use AEM developers tools for development – AEM Developer Tools for Eclipse & AEM HTL Brackets Extension
