Come work for Umbraco - The Umbraco HQ are hiring Project managers, .NET developers and DevOps people!
I am trying to implement a group of websites backed by Umbraco. All the sites are very similar and sites will have about 95% reads.
My architecture so far includes:
DDD/Repositories(SQL Server) but want to switch to Mongo for ReadyOnly Queries in future. Service Layer WebAPI
I want to keep most of my domain logic outside Umbraco so I can utilise it through the API to create Apps in future if I need to. I only want the content written by the content editors to be saved in Umbraco. Yes, I know Umbraco and do magic stuff(create forms) and I can use its content API to get the data out it but I still don't want to create forms and store my domain data in Umbraco. I want full control on how my data in structured in the backend.
So further to the design, I have got a set of shared UserControls that talk to the WebAPI and can to deployed to various instances of Umbraco depicting different websites.
I have a very basic prototype working. The issue I have creating hyperlinks to pages in Umbraco, as I am embedding UserControls to a Umbraco Page. I think this is a easily solvable problem.
I am looking for feedback and input on how can I make this better. Also, if experts can point out a potential problem with this going forward.
Any input will be much appreciated.
