Srongly Typed Content App - May the 4th

Just released the Content-App using the latest 2sxc tech. May the 4th be with us all...

Strongly Typed Content App

The Content App is the default set of templates and content-types which lets the user specify image/text combinations, show addresses on maps and more.

2sxc 16 and 17 perfected a new programming paradigm where the code is better separated in the AppCode folder and compiled ahead of time into a DLL using HotBuild. This results in much nicer Razor files, higher quality code and a setup which provides IntelliSense when developing with VS Code. 

New: Shorter, Cleaner

This is the code of the Text Only.cshtml file in the new code, which is much shorter and easier to read: 

...compared to the previous version, which was forced to have a lot of logic inside the file since we couldn't move it out: 

This is just a simple example, the entire solution is much, much nicer and easier to read and maintain. 

Get it Now

To try the latest Content app, install 2sxc 17.07, add a module to a page and follow the wizard to install. Have fun!
