Create a DNN Module in Less Than 2 Minutes!


What's old is new again! Command line tools have recently become all the rage. What if you didn't have to use Visual Studio to develop a DNN module? What if you didn't have to remember all the structure that goes along with a DNN Module? Well now you don't have to worry about any of that. Simply use generator-dnn!

generator-dnn is a Yeoman plugin to scaffold out DNN Modules. You simply run the command yo dnn and answer a few questions. Based on your answers the structure for a module is created and you can start coding. This works completely from the command line and has no dependency on Visual Studio. Over the years there has been a trend to move towards command line tools and code editors instead of using full-blown IDEs.

Removing Roadblocks to Upgrading By Reviving the Old Core Modules

Using SSL with Dnn

In the recent months I have noticed a increase in the number of clients that want to upgrade Dnn, they are often faced with modules that break due to breaking changes in the platform. And the older the module, the more chances it has of being affected. Unfortunately, we cannot do much for third party modules, but I feel nobody should be blocked from upgrading because of a module that was formerly included with Dnn. After thinking about it, I decided to take initiative and made it my goal to make all the old “core” modules work on DNN v9.2. As you would imagine this is not a task that is achieved overnight, but I’ve made good progress. Several modules are already current and in doing so, I think it fired up a new wave of motivation within the Dnn Community Developers!

5 Tips for Successfully Upgrading DNN Websites

Upendo Ventures gives 5 tips for successful DNN website upgradesDepending on who you ask, you’ll be the recipient of a very passionate response when you ask any DNN’er their opinion about DNN upgrades.  In general, upgrading DNN is very similar to any other ASP.NET application.  Yet, when things go wrong, people tend to blame the application itself.  Don’t get me wrong, the respective application can and sometimes does have something to do with an issue that may occur, but in my experience, that’s the exception and not the rule.  Here are some tips to help you have a less "exciting" time the next time you have to upgrade DNN.
