Currently build on top of Umbraco 7.1.4

##Installation First create an empty website project and set the target framework to .net 4.5. Extract the Umbraco 7.0.1 files into the same directory (except the App_Code and Bin folders). If not already done.

PM> Install-Package Macaw.Umbraco.Foundation PM> Install-Package Macaw.Umbraco.Foundation -IncludePrerelease

Currently only available as pre release version.

##Examples and documentation Both the example project and the nuget package only use the Umbraco Core libraries. To run a website follow the instructions by ben-morris to setup and run your project. (In case of the example project don't overwrite any file)

  • The example database username is "admin" and the password is "password".
  • The nuget package and the example project both use Autofac. See the implementation folder for more information and / or customization.
