I still want more, more relaxing days at the pool, good and healthy food, muscle relaxing shiatsu massages, and still be able the deliver robust solutions. So how can you continue...

Single Page Applications with SennaJS and Liferay Faces One of Liferay 7’s most exciting new features is SennaJS, a Single Page Application engine. SennaJS makes the portal more user-friendly in many ways. For example, when a link is clicked and navigation occurs, SennaJS requests the necessary portlet markup via XHR and renders it in the browser so that the whole portal page is...

You probably know the basic installation instructions for Liferay Bundles: „unzip and run startup.sh“ - with this you get to a working Liferay installation in a minute. It will run with all defaults - which might not be what you want in production. This is part 5 of a series.

Run Docker image Assuming you already have docker installed on your machine, you can easily run the docker image by executing the following command: docker run -it -p 8080:8080...

Liferay 7 comes with a lot of feature and each feature is worth to learn.  Portlet Filter is one of them. However, it is possible to write portlet filter in earlier versions but in Liferay 7 it has certain benefits. As compared to earlier version Portlet Filter can be deployed as service in OSGI. There is no need to write filter in the same portlet plugin that is the ultimate...

I had this plugin for Liferay 6.2 that quite limited in terms of complexity. A perfect candidate to try to port it to a proper DXP OSGi module, I would say. This is probably true as long as you're willing to sacrifice your current build infrastructure and processes and adopt the new Gradle way of setting up your project. But we have invested a lot in our automated build...

  Two episodes (or an eternity) ago, I spoke to Jorge Ferrer, Liferay's VP of Engineering. We didn't have enough time to finish the conversation, so we continued a while after - and then I buried the recording /o\. Anyway, apart from it being still from "before the release of the current version", it's still relevant stuff, I feel bad about missing to post it. Check for yourself...

As many of you know, a while ago we presented AlloyEditor as the result of our quest for a delightful and productive editing experience. Alloy Editor was included by default as the rich editor in Liferay 7 (Yay!)   While we stand by it, our search for simplicity has inadvertently complicated some previously trivial tasks such as adding an alt attribute to an image. You...

Introduction So I'm doing more and more development using pure Intellij for Liferay 7 / DXP, even debugging. I thought I'd share how I do it in case someone else is looking for a brief how-to. Tomcat Setup So I do not like running Tomcat within the IDE, it just feels wrong.  I'd rather have it run as a separate JVM with it's own memory settings, etc.  Besides...

In the beginning of the year I had some fun creating the CRaSH portlet. Once it is deployed, it allows a portal administrator to work with the portal/JVM in a very flexible way using a command line syntax. While this is a very powerful portlet, there are some drawbacks. You need to be able to install it and you need to already have or develop a number of additional commands to make it...
