Integrating custom CQ widgets with third-party libraries

- Scott Macdonald, Senior Content and Community Lead @ Adobe

Have you ever wondered how to create a custom CQ widget that performs tasks not available with out of the box CQ components. In this situation, you can create a CQ widget that uses third-party libraries that lets your CQ application perform custom tasks. For example, assume that you want to create a CQ application that lets you view a specific street by using Google Map APIs.

If you are interested in learning how to create CQ components that use third-party libraries, then check out the following article:  http://helpx.adobe.com/adobe-cq/using/integrating-custom-cq-widgets-third-party.html.
