Today, we are announcing the donation of Sightly, the new secure template language shipped with Adobe Experience Manager 6, to the Apache Sling project. To be precise, the donation is about the Apache Sling implementation of the Sightly template language, and the process that just started is still to be accepted by the Apache Sling community in the coming days. The announcement has been made simultaneously at the keynote of the adaptTo conference in Berlin, and on the Apache Sling mailing list.

This blogpost guides you through the steps to enable the DTM (http://dtm.adobe.com) integration on your custom templates.
If you don’t have an account yet for DTM, then you can request that here: https://dtm.adobe.com/request_access
In this blogpost I assume you have a DTM-account that we can use.
All the samples use Sightly, as this is now the preferred templating implementation in AEM6.
adaptTo(), the longest-running Adobe Experience Manager developer conference, is in just three weeks' time in Berlin (22-24 September). This is a great event to find out all about the open source technologies underpinning AEM, including Apache Sling, Apache Jackrabbit (and Oak), Apache Felix, Apache Cordova, and more.
As well as some great talks on subjects such as DevOps, Data Replication, Search, Validation, Tooling and much more, it's also an excellent opportunity to hang out with developers and talk technical about all things AEM. We're returning to the Kulturbrauerei for a second year, so there's sure to be a relaxing atmosphere and some great food and drink, too.
And if you're coming along to adaptTo(), why not hang out in Berlin for the rest of the week at PhoneGap Day EU?
We look forward to seeing you there!
PhoneGap Day EU is right around the corner on September 26, and this year we’ve moved the event to Berlin. PhoneGap has grown significantly these past years with many thousands of developers publishing apps on all the stores.
We’d like to invite you to join us and share in the community experiences, learn best practices from each other, and sample fine German beer.
At the event you will:
The big day itself we’ll unveil fresh code, showing you the greatest in new web tech for building apps for all platforms. We hope you will join us to celebrate the mobile web and PhoneGap.
If you spent the last year living under a rock and never heard of iBeacons, it's simple - they are small transmitters that advertise their location to nearby devices using Bluetooth Low Energy and developers can leverage dedicated SDK-s to add some location-aware features to their mobile applications.
The goal of this adaptTo() session is to discuss different applications of iBeacons and how it relates to other technologies like NFC, GPS or RFID. I will also demonstrate some ideas for iBeacons support in AEM and other Adobe Marketing Cloud solutions. Most of the ideas are connected to the mobile apps authoring introduced in AEM 6.0 and come from our recent POC-s for the customers in the hotel and media industry. The demo part of the session will focus on extensions to Client Context and Target components and include a mobile app built with AEM, delivering different experiences based on the physical location of the user.
I’m looking forward to getting in your proximity at adaptTo()!

Sometimes, customers want to use more sophisticated widgets while capturing data from the end user in order to improve their overall data entry experience. For example, instead of making user type the digits for numeric fields, customer might want to show a slider to capture data. Similarly, they might want to present data in more intuitive way to end user like when showing the address to end user, they might like to show him the address on map instead of just as text.
Adaptive Forms allows developers to build custom widgets which can integrate with rest of the Forms eco system and still support all the business rules (aka expressions) that Form Author might write for that field. Once a developer deploys these custom widgets, AEM Form author can easily enable that for any particular form field using Adaptive Form Field properties Dialog in Form Authoring mode. The widget framework has been taken from AEM XFA HTML5 Forms (aka AEM Mobile Forms), the approach to use the custom widgets is same as in Adobe XFA HTML5 Forms. The XFA HTML5 Form Widget Specification provides good details about Widget Framework. One can use reuse existing jquery or other ui widgets by creating a wrapper around those widgets that adheres to the Form Widget specification. This specification provides a basic widget(abstractWidget) and defines certain function that custom widget may override and certain events that it should dispatch, more details here.
