Welcome to thewall9 CMS

This is a Multilanguaje Experimental Cloud CMS with Blog features created with ASP.NET MVC 5.2.2, ASP.NET Web API 2, Entity Framework Code First, Identity 2.0, SQL Server on Azure, Azure Blobs, Angular.js, jQuery and Twitter Bootstrap.


Why a Cloud CMS

There are a several reason to create this architecture, here some of them:

  • There is 1 API solution for all websites, we have to maintain just one code environment
  • Each Website is a kind of API Client making calls to the API Layer
  • We can have different website using the same Web Project the only differentiation is Request.Url.Authority and the data return is different
  • We can duplicate websites using the same template but different data
  • We can create a site with just one click
  • There is only 1 admin platform and only 1 customer platform so if we change any of it any customer will see the changes
  • Customers can have many websites in 1 customer platform and with a drop-down they can change the website to configure
  • For Developers: if they want to create a website they just have to know HTML, JavaScript, CSS and a few Razor HTML Helpers
