Coding is craftmanship combined with technical knowledge.
Great coding combines those skills with creativity and solves real problems in new intuitive ways.
That is where the magic happens. That is how code:art is created.
In this post, I'll show how to make a field editor that will let you have any kind of syntax highlighted code in a long text field, as well as taking a look at command line interface (CLI) and Github distribution.
The Digizuite DAM for Episerver integration is now available in the Episerver nuget feed! We've worked long and hard on this, so feel free to have a look and try it out!
Contentful has a handful of extension points, where you in a fairly straightforward and simple manner can extend the editorial experience with minimal development effort. In this post-series I'll show some examples of this.
Content Providers for Episerver is a powerful tool with huge potential for integrations. But how should you handle fault resilience when dealing with a real time connection to an external system? As part of the integration to Digizuite DAM I have helped build, I have given this a great deal of thought.
When your build your own addons, modules and extensions for Episerver CMS, you often want to include controllers - and naturally you want to call these controller - but which url should you use? I always forget this, so here is a little reminder.
The move in the market towards headless could also be seen as a tendency towards a deeper decoupling between content and experience delivery. Inspired by a few discussions, I've tried my hands on an uncommon combination: Contentful providing content delivered through an Episerver web experience layer.
As a little experiment I just launched a basic annotation service, that let's you put comments on screenshots of a web page in order to collaborate during creation.
Some times you have so much great content on your website that you just wish you had a librarian to let your visitors know what to read next. And with Episerver Advance (Content Recommendations) you can at least have something that comes pretty close. I have been lucky enough to try it out on my site.
In this blog post I'm sharing a little sneak peek of the editor experience working with an enterprise DAM like Digizuite integrated into Episerver. Early February 2019, at the Episerver Partner Close-up in Stockholm, you can visit Digizuite stand to get an in-depth demo.
The default image edit mode in Episerver CMS is a little bit boring - it's nothing but an image tag with the actual image. Why not offer a richer on page edit experience for image media as you typically get for pages and blocks?
When integrating external content into Episerver, a classic dilemma is whether you should replicate it in, or setup a content provider to pull it in real-time. As part of the Digizuite Integration I have once again given some thought to the dilemma - and here are some pro's and cons.
I helped a client with a cool little report generator that can give them an easy overview of all their content - and related metadata, that can be opened in excel and easily sorted, filtered and aggregated. Here it is.
Content approval in Episerver CMS has been around for a while now, but coding examples using it are still fairly hard to find. Here is a simple one that might come in handy.
I have worked on many different addon's for Episerver over the years - and used many more. One thing that often strikes me is that either an Addon is for editors or it is for developers, but rarely both. With the new Digizuite integration we are trying to give both groups the tools they need.
Digizuite is a pretty serious DAM player in the enterprise market - and I have been lucky enough to be part of their DAM adventure in Episerver land. In this blog (and most likely several future posts) I will share some of the thoughts and approaches we have taken to make a good integration.
