Sling Dynamic Include

The purpose of the sling dynamic include (SDI) is to replace dynamic generated components (eg. current time or foreign exchange rates) with server-side include tag (eg. SSI or ESI). Therefore the dispatcher is able to cache the whole page but dynamic components are generated and included with every request. Components to include are chosen in filter configuration using resourceType attribute.
When the filter intercepts request for a component with given resourceType, it'll return a server-side include tag (eg. <!--#include virtual="/path/to/resource" --> for Apache server). However the path is extended by new selector (nocache by default). This is required because filter has to know when to return actual content.
Components don't have to be modified in order to use this module (or even aware of its existence). It's servlet filter, installed as an OSGi bundle and it can be enabled, disabled or reconfigured without touching AEM installation.
Let's try ☺
Lets do this practically by loading a component with and without SDI.

Creating an AEM Sightly component that uses JavaScript

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Sightly component that uses JavaScript. By using JavaScript as part of your Sightly component, you can create a more dynamic component that responds to events such as when the user scrolls over text with the mouse. For example, you can change the background color an AEM web page, as shown in the following illustration.

Chrome Console Magic

Chrome Console Magic
Chrome has many timesaving and neat tools built into it, many of these tools are not necessarily obvious on the surface. This post is a deeper dive into what is available. If you are not familiar with Chrome Dev Tools at all, this post is probably not for you.

$ selectors

Chrome has built-in selectors much like jquery.
On this page you will see 3 divs, two with a selector-test class and one with selector-test id.
There are 4 useful types of $ selectors in Chrome.


$() selects the first matching element. (If jquery is active on the page, it will select all matching elements). It will match classes prefaced with ‘.’, IDs prefaced with ‘#’, or regular elements such as ‘p’, 'div', etc.
Example 1 (in the console type):
Chrome returns:
  <div class="selector-test">Test selector content (.selector-test)</div>
Example 2:
Chrome returns:
  <div class="selector-test">Test selector content (.selector-test)</div>
The same div is selected in both examples as both the first item with class "selector-test" and the first div on the page.

Integrate AEM with YouTube

You can use youtube API to add video in your webpages. Below is the sample code snippet for embedding youtube videos into your webpages.

Note:  In order to make sure your javascript works, add "enablejsapi=1" parameter to the src atttribute. Please check below HTML code.


<h1>In page youtube video player API</h1>
<h2><span id="YTvideoLoadTime"></span> </h2>

<h3>Check console logs for player events</h3>
<iframe id='player' width="560" height="315" 
src="" frameborder="5" allowfullscreen></iframe>


var player;
var timerStart, timetaken;

jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {

function getArtistId() {
    return 'axCKOu3YjmM';

function loadPlayer() {
   console.log("Youtube IFRAME api");
    timerStart =;
    if (typeof (YT) == 'undefined' || typeof (YT.Player) == 'undefined') {
        var tag = document.createElement('script');        
        tag.src = "";
        var firstScriptTag = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
        firstScriptTag.parentNode.insertBefore(tag, firstScriptTag);

        window.onYouTubePlayerAPIReady = function () {
           // console.log("YT undefined calling onYouTubePlayer ");

    } else {
       // console.log("calling onYouTubePlayer ");


function onYouTubePlayer() {
    player = new YT.Player('player', {
        // height: '490',
        //width: '880',
       // videoId: getArtistId(),
       // playlist: 'PLkBe8kbE_7-xmNihqYr19TlYGH7jUhQkY',
        playerVars: {
            controls: 1,
            showinfo: 0,
            rel: 0,
            showsearch: 0,
            iv_load_policy: 3
        events: {
            'onStateChange': onPlayerStateChange,
                'onError': catchError,
                'onReady': onPlayerReady

var done = false;

function onPlayerStateChange(event) {
    console.log("onPlayerStateChange: " +;
    if ( == YT.PlayerState.PLAYING ) {
        done = true;
    } else if ( == YT.PlayerState.ENDED) {
    else if ( == YT.PlayerState.PAUSED) {

function onPlayerReady(event) {
    timetaken = - timerStart;
    $('#YTvideoLoadTime').html("Youtube Video player has loaded in : " + timetaken / 1000 + " seconds");


function catchError(event) {
    if ( == 100) console.log("ERROR");

function stopVideo() {
