The Content Types module allows defining Magnolia content types for instance in a single YAML file of a light module. By defining a custom JCR node type, workspace and namespace in a single YAML file of a light module there's no need to deploy a WAR file or restart a Magnolia instance. Now with just a few lines of YAML code referring to the content type definition you can quickly create a content app descriptor managing the content items defined.

For complex node definitions the Content Types module also supports XML file based JCR node type definitions served as resource files from a light module.
