Trying Nuxeo without nuxeo studio


I have about half a year to familiarize myself with nuxeo. This is because next year my organization is about to change its ECM. So by next year several proposal needs to be ready with prototype implementation so the hierarchy can make decision. Nuxeo studio is a one month trial, and i can't dedicate one month on it, i'm just too busy. I'd rather go step step on the background up until the end of the year.

Hence, i wonder if it is possible to work without nuxeo studio. I need to set up workflow and automation etc…

Is there any tutorial or project, test that could guide me in that direction. I could play a little with the studio and see what it generate to get familiar with the concepts. but then the trial will stop and then i will be stuck.

Hence if anyone could guide me a little on how to work without the studio that would be great.

Also, is there any option to only purchase the studio usage without the all support.

Of course, sorry about that. Got confused with the process. Anyway, i'm really interested in bringing nuxeo to my organization, and would like your help as in recommendation on how to best achieve that. That is, the different options that may help in a first evaluation phase

Nuxeo Studio is useful to build maintenable, easily updatable customization on top of Nuxeo Platform. One should use Nuxeo Studio for implementing specific constraints and rules such as custom forms, custom workflows, triggers using automation module etc.. All of this can be implemented without Studio but requires then much more time (a lot of XML to write) and is much harder to maintain. Nuxeo Studio makes sure you can deploy your business rules on top of the up-coming releases of Nuxeo Platform.

What you can do with nuxeo studio, you can do with its source code. Here is a step by step tutorial to develop with nuxeo. Hope it helps.

Step 1: Pull nuxeo code from git repository ( and update the code by using python master -a

Step 2: Import the code into IntelliJ IDEA IDE.

Step 3: Build the project and create a maven run configration with following parameters: clean -DskipTests=true install -Paddons,distrib

You will find the executable built project under /YOUR_PATH_TO_NUXEO/nuxeo/nuxeo-distribution/nuxeo-server-tomcat/target/nuxeo-server-tomcat-9.2-SNAPSHOT/bin/
