NitroNet for Sitecore extends NitroNet with the support for the WCMS Sitecore.
It handles all possible presentation scenarios to integrate a handlebars frontend into Sitecore without functional loss. In addition it's possible to get a hybrid integration with handlebars frontends (based on simple and logic-less view pages) and own Razor views (*.cshtml).
NitroNet for Sitecore features
There are many features which come with NitroNet alone. On top of that NitroNet for Sitecore offers the following things:
- Support for the following Sitecore characteristics:
- MVC based renderings (e.g. Controller Rendering)
- Full support for the Experience Editor
- Caching which fully integrates into the Sitecore caching mechanisms
- Out of the box integration as view engine
- Different NuGets for supported Sitecore versions and your preferred IoC framework
NitroNet is a handlebars view engine with an intelligent built-in file system and the possibility to add custom helpers. Because of these two features NitroNet differs from other existing handlebars view engines.
... and whats Nitro?
Nitro is a Node.js application for simple and complex frontend development with a tiny footprint. It provides a proven but flexible structure to develop your frontend code, even in a large team.
