Creating an Adobe Experience Manager HTL component that displays a repeating data set

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager HTL component that displays repeating information that can be set by an AEM author during design time. For example, consider a typical on-line section of a sports site. Each section that lists a story includes a digital asset (located in the Experience Manager DAM), a heading, and text.

The following illustration shows an Experience Manager HTL component listing various sport stories about a youth football club.

As shown in the previous illustration, the HTL component displays a repeating set of data where each section has a heading, text and an image. An author sets this information using a Touch UI dialog that contains a Multifield control. 

This community developer article steps you through how to build this AEM HTL component.
