Using the SPA Editor with AEM Sites

Video overview of authoring content for a Single Page Application in AEM Sites.

AEM’s SPA Editor provides authors the ability to edit content for a Single Page Application or SPA. Developers using the React framework create a SPA and then map areas of the SPA to AEM components, allowing authors to use familiar AEM Sites editing tools. The below video demonstrates some of the in-context editing features with the WKND SPA sample site. The WKND SPA project includes both a React implementation.


The Single-Page Application (SPA) Editor feature requires AEM 6.4 service pack 2 or newer.

The SPA Editor is the recommended solution for projects that require SPA framework based client-side rendering.

Additional Resources

The WKND SPA implementation only provides support for AEM 6.4.8+, AEM 6.5.5+ and AEM as a Cloud Service.

Download and install the appropriate WKND SPA package based on your version of AEM. There are separate versions for React.
