  • WebAPI Global Action Filters And Dependency Injection

    Today I had the privilege of trying out the new WebApi feature in Orchard, which as you may know is new as of Orchard 1.6.

    Personally I think this is a very exciting addition, as it allows us to expose Orchard services as well as our own services via a RESTful API to the outside world.

    • Virtual hack-a-thon: need to get features moving a bit, then triage old bugs. Sébastien, Nick, Piotr, Sipke, Bertrand, Zoltán and Benedek volunteer. Let's do first week of February. We'll tweet about it (#orchardhackathon #orchardcms). Thursday Feb 7th midnight to midnight (PST). We need to each commit to a time frame so that there is someone in the meeting at all times. There will be pizza! There will be local parties in Redmond, LA, London, Warsaw, Amsterdam, Budapest.
    • Triage: 116 incoming; 12 triaged. We'll get back to this.
    • We should tell people that they can watch the bug triage discussions in this video, and we should also invite people to come and defend their bugs on the meeting.
    • Recent changes and updates in Bertrand's Nwazet.Commerce and Piotr's SignalR.

    • Migrate everything to Git: Nick mentions that this could be the opportunity to improve Azure integration.
    • Two things: moving to Git, and moving to Github. Codeplex has Git support so we may not have to do the second one.
      • Github is very innovative
      • Could have the gallery depend on Git repos

      • Tooling is still behind although
      • Everybody would have to move
      • We have a lot of contents on CodePlex. There is a migration tool for issues. Need to investigate discussions.
      • Github doesn't have downloads / releases

      Maybe shortly after 1.7
    • 108 untriaged bugs
    • Inline editing: Sipke and Nick to dig out the code and make it move forward. Maybe take some inspiration or use this: http://vitalets.github.com/x-editable/demo.html (suggested by Ylan)
    • Quick demo of forum by Nick: search now works; users can delete their threads; Gravatar support

  • Introducing The Theme Machine Responsive

    After building a lot of sites in Orchard CMS using "The Theme Machine" as a starting point and exploring the current responsive themes in the gallery I saw a need for a more robust responsive solution that would work across any device (JS enabled) right out-of-the-box, including navigation!  "The Theme Machine Responsive" is a fully responsive version of the great theme "The Theme Machine" that ships with Orchard CMS and is built to work with the existing widget structure and tiered navigation.

  • Development Tutorial Module Released

    Yesterday we released our new module: the Orchard Training Demo module. This module serves as a tutorial: it guides you through learning Orchard development by showing many examples with plenty of explanation (and covers almost everything we listed under the topics of module development). If you're starting with Orchard now, check it out!
