When we started the latest project using DNN8 about 2 years ago we decided that the MVC support just wasn't ready and decided to go with ASP.NET WebForms and some fancy JavaScript work client side when needed.

What about now, would you say the MVC support in DNN is stable and mature enough to use for a big project? Are the templates also good enough to use as a startingpoint? This is a single site installation so really no need to distribute any modules etc.

Or is it perhaps better to skip MVC altogether in favor of something like Angular (again with regards to DNN)?

Getting quite worried that we might be the only one alive who still develops something for DNN as this forum seems quite dead to be honest. Would have hoped the new ownership would change this. Or am I just in the wrong place and that the real discussions are elsewhere?

Actually, my impression is development is picking up. It may be that developers are not using this forum.

As for the question of MVC, my impression is that its use hasn't taken off in the DNN community. But, someone else may set me straight in my thinking. I'm old, and I'm still stuck in the WebForms world, though I've been working on learning more about DAL2 than I know a couple of months ago.

It might be fun to ask people what they are using. I hear much more discussion of razor scripts, angular, and react.

Yes, I also got the feeling that things were ramping up with regards to new management etc but based on activity in here, the answer from the development community still seem to be lacking. Some other parts of the forum have some activity but in the development section I can hear myself breath

I had the same discussion with a recent client.  We decided to go with web forms as there wasn't enough documentation to convince us that MVC would be a good user experience.  I would also like to hear more about whether MVC in custom modules is a good idea at this juncture.  My advice - stick with the tried and true until convinced otherwise.
