Hello again! I finished my muffin and rehydrated accordingly. I hope you used your break wisely, as breaks are essential to productivity. Now, back to work. We have a functioning React application using Headless and Clay, but it runs separately from Liferay. How can we make and deploy a User facing portlet out of our ReactJS application on an instance of DXPC?   ...

Welcome back! What did you do during our intermission? I went to the grocery store to get some lunch. I got a bento box with an assortment of pickled and marinated things on top of brown rice. They skimped me out on the protein though; I only got two slices of pork (which was, by the way, delicious). Anyways, on with the tutorial! Working With Cloud Hosted API’s in...

A request we see often from customers is the ability to integrate Liferay with a CRM system. At the same time, we all know that Liferay is strong when it comes to integrations with external systems, offering several different approaches and tools to achieve our needs.

How do you tell your users more about the application you're building? How do you introduce them to a big and complex system? Option 1: Write compelling documentation (1a: hope they'll find it, 1b: hope they'll read it) Option 2: Add documentation to the page you're currently building (2a: hope they'll scroll to it, 2b: hope they're not patronized by the never changing...

Back in March 2020, we were assigned to create a POC that involves integrating Liferay and ReactJS. As a newcomer to Liferay myself, I had plenty of questions and was unsure of what I was doing most of the time. This blog post aims to highlight the lessons learned and the challenges encountered during the development of that POC. As for specifications, the ReactJS POC...

Back in April of 2019 I authored a blog post titled Liferay Faces downloads reach another all time high. I am pleased to report that DOWNLOADS HIT ANOTHER ALL TIME HIGH back in September of 2019, and held fairly steady until January of this year (2020). Downloads seem to take a dip after the holidays, so perhaps that's why we saw a drop-off in February. Since then, there has...

Back in May of 2019 I authored a blog post titled Portlet API downloads up over 85% in one year. If you read that post, you will see that the stats for the portlet-api artifact averaged roughly 23,000 downloads/month. One year later, I'm pleased to report that the stats are now averaging roughly 33,000 downloads/month. That's a gain of roughly 43%! The peak was about 40,000...

  For this episode of Radio Liferay, I've talked with Bryce Osterhaus, Frontend Developer at Liferay for ~ 6 years. With his experience, he's a perfect complement to me: While he feels at home in the browser, client side, I'm comfortable on the backend, away from all of the messy frontend stuff - prepare for some naïve questions coming his way. We spoke about a design decision...

Sometimes it can be useful for system administrators without Liferay knowledge (or without a Liferay administrator user) to be able to execute Liferay Groovy (or other supported scripting language) scripts. To accomplish this we can combine both Blade CLI and the Gogo shell scripting language. Blade CLIoffers some nice possibilities in order to manage your Liferay server...

   A while ago I sat down with Ryan Schuhler. He's Associate Program Manager at Liferay, which is a fancy name for Webteam Lead, and we talked about "dogfooding" Liferay DXP to build - which features are used, how the site evolved and what is fed back into the product. Or, in more detail, here are some talking points the versions in use and how...
