Using ES2015 Modules in your Portlet

Once you’ve exposed your modules via your package.json file, you can use them in your portlets. The aui:script tag’s require attribute makes it easy.

This tutorial covers how to access your exposed modules in your portlets. Follow the steps below to use your exposed modules in your portlets.

  1. Declare the aui taglib in your view JSP:

    <%@ taglib uri="" prefix="aui" %>

    Note: if you created the portlet using Blade, the aui taglib is already provided for you in the init.jsp.

  2. Add an aui:script tag to the JSP and set the require attribute to the relative path for your module.

    The require attribute lets you include your exposed modules in your JSP. The AMD Loader fetches the specified module and its dependencies. An example faux Console Logger Portlet’s view.jsp shown below includes the module

    <aui:script require="js-logger/">
        var Logger = jsLoggerLoggerEs.default;
        var loggerOne = new Logger('*** -> ');
        var loggerDefault = new Logger();

    References to the module within the script tag are named after the require value, in camel-case and with all invalid characters removed. The module’s reference jsLoggerLoggerEs is derived from the module’s relative path value js-logger/ The value is stripped of its dash and slash characters and converted to camel case.

Thanks to the aui:script tag and its require attribute, using your modules in your portlet is a piece of cake!
