XBlog for Sitecore 8

A while back I was asked to embed a blog into Sitecore. And, although it’s simple to create in Sitecore, it’s even simpler to add something that was already written. (I’m a developer, we like to follow principles like DRY). Currently on the marketplace there are a couple of big ones, but only one real option that supports the popular technology MVC.

Sitecore8-Examples: ServicesClient Release

Simple post, but I just wanted to let everyone know I’ve posted a new project to the Sitecore8-Examples repository on GitHub. This outlines example usages of the ServicesClient (new to Sitecore 7.5), including basic CRUD operations as well as how to create a service of your own.

If you haven’t heard of this API before, I strongly suggest taking a look. It’s a REST-based API built on the ASP WebAPI includes upgrades to security, build in abstract classes (for making it easier to implement your own services) as well as a supporting JavaScript library (out of the box).

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns please use the comments form. If you see any problems, please report them as an issue on the repository. And, finally, if you think you can improve upon what’s there I am accepting pull requests.
