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.


MTK is a small set of ready-to-use component, area and page templates, that supplies the basic functionality that is common across websites. The templates are designed to be flexible, with dialog options that enable them to fit many use cases without development. The MTK templates can be used "as is", modified to suit your projects needs, or simply used as helpful examples of best-practice Magnolia templating. The MTK is intentionally small so that developers can learn it quickly.  CSS is kept to a minimum to enable developers to easily integrate their own CSS or frameworks. 

In addition to the standard maven module, the MTK is also available as a light module for easy access to the files. To get the latest version, see the download area on the release notes pages.

To experiment with MTK or Magnolia templating, put the unzipped MTK light module in Magnolia's resource directory, and make changes to the files. Due to Magnolia's resource loading mechanism, these files will be used instead of the ones in the Java classpath provided by the Maven module. 

Installing

Maven is the easiest way to install the module. Add the following dependencies to your bundle:

<dependency>
  <groupId>info.magnolia.templating</groupId>
  <artifactId>magnolia-templating-kit</artifactId>
  <version>1.2.3</version>
</dependency>

<dependency>
  <groupId>info.magnolia.templating</groupId>
  <artifactId>magnolia-templating-essentials-models</artifactId>
  <version>1.2.3</version>
