Market Woman Shopping

Apple has the App Store, Google has Google Play, and Enonic has the Enonic Market: a hub that brings together all the tools you need to create incredible digital experiences.

As well as offering developers the right tools, starter kits and libraries to build apps, the Market contains ready-made applications like extensions, dummy websites, and integrations with marketing tools.

In short, there’s a lot here to explore. So to help you find exactly what you’re looking for, here’s your guide to the Enonic Market.

What can you do with applications, libraries and starters?

Head to the Enonic Market, and you’ll see our products separated into three categories: Applications, libraries and starters. So what’s the difference? 

Applications

An app is ready-made, meaning it can be installed and used out of the box to supercharge your digital experiences. These include tools like Google Analytics, Disqus, and HubSpot.

Libraries

Libraries are tools for developers that make it easier and faster to build apps and reuse code. These tools perform a load of useful functions. Take for instance the notifications lib, which can be added to your projects to help send push notifications.

Starters

Starter kits help developers to build applications faster and better, making them essential when developing your next application or website. Like a toolbox, starters kickstart a project with a pre-defined blueprint.

Just as all roads lead to Rome, there are several ways to download and install the goodies at the Enonic Market.

  2. Choose “Install” in the top left corner.
  3. Now you can search or scroll through the list of available apps.

Note: This only applies to applications, and not libs and starter kits. But let the developers worry about using these kind of things.

Downloading on the web

Although you probably want to plug and play with applications like Disqus or SEO meta fields, your organization may want to tailor a given solution. This is where the Enonic Market website comes into play.

Simply navigate to the desired app, lib or starter in the Market, and hit “Get started”, “Download” or “Clone”, respectively.

There are several ways to download an application here:

  • You can download and install it directly in XP, as mentioned above.
  • You can install it via Enonic CLI (read more of the technical stuff here).
  • You can download the jar file.

To start working with libraries and starter kits, you can add some code or execute a command. All of these steps are thoroughly explained on each product page, so if you or a developer are interested, check it out on the libraries or starter kit sections.

How to install apps in the Enonic Cloud

If your Enonic instance is hosted in the cloud, the Enonic platform will be in “managed mode.”

Managed Mode Enonic

This usually means that you have to contact your developer or administrator to install new apps, but we’ll show you how to do it anyway.

NB! This section assumes a certain familiarity with the Enonic Cloud console.

  1. On the solution dashboard, choose “Applications” from either the left hand menu or from the card.
  2. Choose “Install application.”
  3. Now choose a local file or an app directly from the Enonic Market!

User roles

As a site administrator or developer, you can control exactly who gets to download and install apps on your Enonic instance. An admin role is the only one with rights to download, and you can of course decide who will receive this responsibility.

You can manage users and roles in the right hand menu on the Enonic home screen.
