Customizing the Adobe Experience Manager Sidekick to improve the activate process

You can customize the AEM sidekick to add functionality tio meet your business requirements. For example, typically, once you activate an AEM page in author, in order to view it in publish, you typically copy its URL, paste it in new tab and change the host-name and port name to see the results. To simplify this use case, you can add a custom button to the AEM sidekick that performs these actions with 1 click.

The new sidekick button automatically give you the link to the page in publish instance once you activate it. That is, with a single click, you can see your current page in publish instance.
