Alloy UI (AUI) Tag Library

The AUI tag library provides tags that implement commonly used UI components. These tags make your markup consistent, responsive, and accessible.

You can find a list of the available <aui> taglibs in the AUI taglibdocs. Each taglib has a list of attributes that can be passed to the tag. Some of these are required, and some are optional. See the taglibdocs to view the requirements for each tag. You’ll find the full markup generated by the tags in their JSPs in their Liferay Github Repo folders.

To use the AUI taglib library in your apps, you must add the following declaration to your JSP:

<%@ taglib prefix="aui" uri="http://liferay.com/tld/aui" %>

The AUI taglib is also available via a macro for your FreeMarker theme templates and web content templates. Follow this syntax:

<@liferay_aui["tag-name"] attribute="string value" attribute=10 />

This section covers how to create UI components with the AUI taglibs. Each article contains code examples along with a screenshot of the resulting UI.
