This article is about working with Sitecore Unicorn. It will explain how to get started with Unicorn, look at the build and deployment workflow, and outline the specific features of the tool. It will also provide a quick overview of existing alternatives to Unicorn and summarize the ways content can be serialized in Sitecore.
When you need to perform repeated tasks in Sitecore CMS, you can either schedule jobs using the built-in mechanism or leverage a simpler alternative — the SiteCron module.
In this article, I would like to share my experience of integrating SiteCron as a separate Helix module by adding a new Feature project to an existing solution. In this way, we get compliance with the Helix principles and have the place to store our custom jobs.
In one of my previous blog posts, I shared my impression of what I liked in Umbraco CMS and which of its killer features would be great to have in Sitecore. I’ve since decided to implement one of these capabilities — the highlighting of untranslated items in Sitecore’s Content Tree. Read on to learn how I got it done.
I recently took part in a project based on the Umbraco CMS. This inspired me to make a comparison of Umbraco and Sitecore. In this article, I will describe these two content management systems, their similarities and differences, and will bring your attention to Umbraco’s qualities that I really liked and that Sitecore lacks. I hope it will help you figure out which solution suits your business better.
Considering the benefits that Sitecore Helix provides to a Sitecore implementation, such as future-proof architecture that is easy to maintain and extend, I strongly recommend transferring pre-Helix projects to Helix. You’ll probably ask, what does a process of transforming pre-Helix app into one that’s Helix-based include? Read on to learn!
Today, there’s a wide variety of principles that software developers use extensively, such as OOD, SOLID, design patterns and others. Although they are all suited for development on Sitecore, this powerful platform has specific requirements, and Helix is at its heart. What is it? Let’s figure it out.
