CQ Developer Tricks

Posted by Feike Visser

While working with Adobe CQ5 every now and then you discover some new tricks or options, here the list that I use daily:

Remove #cf/
Don’t want to see/wait for the content-finder while refereshing pages, just remove #cf/ in your url.

?debug=layout
Shows you all details of the components used on your page

?debugConsole=true
Runs Firebug Lite inside your browser

?wcmmode=(edit|preview|design|disabled)
This parameter sets your WcmMode in the specified mode, makes testing for a particular WcmMode easier .

?debugClientLibs=true
Writes out all Clientlib categories as separate files (check your HTML-source).

CTRL+SHIFT+U
In combination with ?debugClientLibs=true will show you timing information of your page

http://server/libs/cq/ui/content/dumplibs.html
Shows you all information around the clientlibs used in your CQ5-environment.

If you have other tricks, let me know and I will add them to the list…
