Module Creator

Automate module creation tasks.

The DNN Module Creator automates many of the initial module creation tasks, so that module developers can focus on writing code.

Developers can quickly build modules without a full-blown IDE (Integrated Development Environment), such as Visual Studio.

In addition, the Module Creator can be extended with custom templates to further streamline development.
