Magnolia 5.7 reached extended end of life on May 31, 2022. Support for this branch is limited, see End-of-life policy. Please note that to cover the extra maintenance effort, this EEoL period is a paid extension in the life of the branch. Customers who opt for the extended maintenance will need a new license key to run future versions of Magnolia 5.7. If you have any questions or to subscribe to the extended maintenance, please get in touch with your local contact at Magnolia.

In Magnolia 5.7, it is impossible to create a custom webapp with the Standard Templating Kit (STK) due to module dependency conflicts. If you rely on a webapp with the STK, use Magnolia 5.6.x.

Standard Templating Kit (STK) (December 31, 2018)

  • Current status: End of life

The replacement for STK is Magnolia Templating Kit (MTK), first released with Magnolia 5.4 on July 3, 2015. MTK is quicker to learn than STK and requires fewer skills. MTK is aimed at the increasing number of front-end developers who looked for something leaner and less time-consuming. MTE is front-end framework agnostic, which means you can integrate it with any modern framework such as Bootstrap or Foundation.

STK timeline:

  • 2009: First release
  • 2015: Maintenance mode
  • 2017: Deprecation
  • 2018: End of life

With the the release of Magnolia 5.6 we have stopped producing preconfigured bundles and webapps with the STK based demo. If you still rely on STK, you can use it. However, you have to build a bundle or webapp with STK yourself.
