Liferay Faces Alloy UI Components

Liferay Faces Alloy is a .jar file that you add as a dependency in your JSF portlet project to leverage AlloyUI. Liferay Faces Alloy provides a way to use AlloyUI in a typical JSF development fashion. It provides a set of Facelet UIComponent tags as part of its component suite.

For listings, demos, and code examples of Liferay Faces Alloy components, check out the Liferay Faces Showcase. To view a working example using Liferay Faces Alloy components, visit the Liferay Faces 3 Portlet.
