AEM Repo Tool aem-repo-tool

AEM 6.4 has reached the end of extended support and this documentation is no longer updated. For further details, see our technical support periods. Find the supported versions here.

The AEM Repo Tool is a simple solution to transfer JCR content between your local filesystem and the AEM server via the command line comparable to FTP. The AEM Repo Tool is similar to the Jackrabbit FileVault tool, but is faster, has minimal dependencies, and is a simple bash script.

This tool simplifies the transfer of files for the developer and also can be integrated into IntelliJ and Eclipse to make development even more efficient.

Overview overview

For a given path inside a jcr_root filevault structure on the filesystem, AEM Repo Tool creates a package with a single filter for the entire subtree and pushes that to the server (similar to FTP put), fetches it from the server ( get) or compares the differences ( status and diff).

The tool does not support multiple filter paths or FileVault’s filter.xml.

Please note that the AEM Repo Tool will always overwrite the entire file or directory specified.
