Template components

You can export a design from Adobe Illustrator to the Sitecore Content Publisher. This lets you create templates using a standard graphical editor before you upload it to Sitecore Content Hub, where you can add further constraints, variables, and assets.

A template has the following components:


Constraints let superusers and Chili administrators lock or limit editing possibilities, including moving, rotating, or scaling elements in a template. The Content Publisher editor provides complete control over character and paragraph settings, and the text engine provides accurate typography rendering. Different users can have different limitations, letting stakeholders edit the template in different ways. You can set constraints as final and reuse them in similar templates.


Variables include detailed modification mechanisms for different variable types. For example, you can set a numeric value to only increment or decrement by ten. Users can edit the variables you configured for a template when using that template to create a publication. You can also constrain variables to block users from making changes.


Templates use assets stored in Sitecore Digital Asset Management (DAM). To check that the template follows brand guidelines and keeps brand consistency, users can only use approved assets or assets included in the template when creating their publication.

Chili administrators can include a set of assets to be used in frames.

Dynamic layouts

Dynamic layouts let you reposition, resize, or automatically scale the document, its frames, and any alternate layouts, based on their relation to other elements.
