CWS Start

This is a reboot of the old CWS Starter Website project, rebuilt from scratch for Umbraco 6 MVC mode, so you can pull it apart and learn how an Umbraco MVC is built.

Source Code Available

This package is not closed source and will never ever will be. The whole purpose of this project is for people to learn how the website site was built, so any compiled code is easily available by downloading the source code from the project on GitHub

Built on BootStrap

Due to it's popularity and the vast number of themes, jQuery plugins, CSS WebFonts and the such it was a decision to use Bootstrap to build the CWS Start project on it. Rather than having to learn a new framework or a priopitery one that I would have written.

Built for all to learn

This website package starter kit is designed for a vast number of audiences from the absolute novice to Umbraco to the more vetran Umbraco user who may want to pick up a trick or two. So why not take a look through the well documented & commented code and pick up something new today.
