Description

Orchard will create shared components for building ASP.NET applications and extensions, and specific applications that leverage these components to meet the needs of end-users, scripters, and developers. Additionally, we seek to create partnerships with existing application authors to help them achieve their goals. Orchard is delivered as part of the ASP.NET Open Source Gallery under the CodePlex Foundation. It is licensed under a New BSD license, which is approved by the OSI. The intended output of the Orchard project is three-fold:
  • Individual .NET-based applications that appeal to end-users , scripters, and developers
  • A set of re-usable components that makes it easy to build such applications
  • A vibrant community to help define these applications and extensions
In the near term, the Orchard project is focused on delivering a .NET-based CMS application that will allow users to rapidly create content-driven Websites, and an extensibility framework that will allow developers and customizers to provide additional functionality through extensions and themes.

Erik Porter and Nathan Heskew are two of the developers of Orchard. Do they look familiar? Sure they do. They used to be devs on the C9 team.

      Awesome.  I was worried when I hadn't seen any real updates to Oxite in a while.  That's great to know that yall are working on something even better!  Going to download this now.

      Yup, this is where we started to go with Oxite, but modular from day 1 (much better start).  Let us know what you think after you try it out.

      Oxite got torn to shreds by the Alt.NET community for it's horrendous programming practices. I wonder if they learned anything with Orchard?

      I worked on both Oxite and Orchard.  The ALT.NET's loud screaming unfortunately did affect Orchard a LOT.  With Oxite, we went back and fixed the parts up that made sense (not everything they complained about, but lots of it).  It was our first MVC app, which I'll also throw out is STILL running sites just fine today despite "bad" programming practices.  Orchard is the polar opposite and has used "good" programming practices from day 1.  We'll see how it goes.  Note, I am no longer on the Orchard team for my day job.  Tongue Out  Smiley
