Hi,Is there tutorial on how to get from empty episerver project to Alloy demo kit one, with explanations to advanced features?Nemanja
and the release notes in the repository.
Hope that helps you get started...
Thanks for the response,this was great read but not exactly what i was looking for.In alloy example there are a lot build in things, that i'm not sure how they work like this question:http://world.episerver.com/forum/developer-forum/Developer-to-developer/Thread-Container/2014/2/Alloy-MVC-N00b-question/
I kinda figured out this myslef but then i wondered how can i drag and drop my Page in ContentArea and see something rendered and then i found TemplateCoordinator classthat i think is converting everythink into partialPage.But is there any other way to specifiy how i whant my page to render if it's a block? Can i specifiy on page type level paths to two different views and say this is in context of a page, this in context of a block.In alloy project there is a lot stuff in Business folder that i don't fully understand, and would like to read step by step tutorial from empty to alloy project.I guess i'll have to search for specific issues when i come accros them
You can either simply put a partial view in the shared folder with the correct name and Episerver will use it automatically. Or create a controller and decorate it with an attribute to help Episerver know that this controller can be used for partial views.
Check out blog here for some more details.
For learning Episerver I recommend first going through
That should answer most questions on Episerver development :)
...and also for certification.
As a trainer I recommend you to take one of the online course (or go togheter and order a on site beginner course, since I like to go to Serbia :)). If your company does not want to make that investment there are a couple of ways to go forward.
Start by looking at this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbN7qrZp2z8
Then, read the stuff here while going through Alloy:
Hi Henrik,I'll take a look at the videos, and see about the training :)Thx for helpNemanja
There is also a getting started guide which would require some basic knowledge of building .net websites.
Hi Alf,I already looked at that one and created page, what i would like to see is path from that get started to alloy demo kit,
explaining what is done and why, just to get bigger picture Thanks for help!
Unfortunately Alloy is not always an example of "best practices", more an example of what you CAN do rather than what you SHOULD do.
I would not say it's a good practice to copy Alloy Templates and put your own styling. You'll definitely get more features than you need.
I would ask myself these questions
I'm afraid I can't give you more help than that, but I hope I gave some some steps how to go from a solution with a simple page
If you loke to learn more of Content Area and TempleDescriptor you should read Valdis blog serie about it
Thx guys,@Alf this makes sense what you wrote thx.@Henrik thx for the linkNemanja
