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.
I recently discovered publicwww.com a cool service that lets you search for any text in the html/css/js of all it's 550 million (2019-05-09) indexed web pages, including the cookies sent out and the http header. In this post I put my Episerver goggles on and had some fun with this data.
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.
In the center of Copenhagen a team of volunteer IT professionals are teaching groups of passionate, dedicated and talented refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants coding skills, to help them land jobs in an IT industry starving for skilled workers. It's working - and it's an awesome concept!
Thursday, November 8th I'm really excited to once again have been invited to join the Episerver Developer Meetup in Helsinki!
Episerver categories is one way to deal with taxonomy on a web site. But often I find that I prefer a simpler, more transparent approach of having Tag Pages replace them. Here's how.
A long time ago I did a small weekend project to fix a problem my wife was having with her e-reader. I shared it on my blog and then forgot all about it. Until now, that is.
Earlier this year Nicola Ayan released a nice little plugin that I instantly liked, the CMS Audit tool. It's a great way to get an easy overview over what is being used where in your CMS. In a talk about my favorite addons I showed it at Episerver Ascend Copenhagen and straight away got a question from the audience: Can we use this tool to see where visitor groups are being used? Well, now you can.
Last week I did a couple of talks at Episerver User Group meetings in Denmark about how I've tweaked my Episerver installation at codeart.dk in order to work as a great blogging platform. I also showcase a few of the addons I'm currently working on. Now I recorded the talk, so if you have a 23 minutes to spare, then grab a coffee and make some popcorn and have a look.
Ever played around with adding custom views in Episerver CMS? It's a really powerful way to extend the UI. But why does it work when you register your view for a model class, but not for an interface implemented by that model? I had a look and found out.
If you have a site with a lot of different content types, it can be a good idea to help Episervers Automatic Content Type suggestion feature along. Here is a basic Admin mode tool - in good old webforms (yes, I washed my hands after I made it) that will let administrators / and super-editors configure exactly which content types to suggest when.
