    Hi -

     We are evaluating sitefinity as a replacment for Sitecore (another .NET CMS).

     Can someone help me understand how it is best to develop with Sitefinity and Visual Studio?

     I would like to be able to create widgets, themes and all other elements that are necessary for a site.

      With Sitecore you opened up the folder containing the website and started working from their.

      It appears with Thunder I can create a Visual Studio project for themes.     Do I need a separate Visual Studio project for the code assets (widgets, controls, etc)?

      Is it a good idea to  open the folder containing the Sitefinity site in Visual Studio as a web site and start working from their?

      To me it makes sense to have one Visual Studio project where all your assets could be maintained.     By assets I mean themes, widgets, controls, etc.  

      I can't seem to find any good documentation on this discussion.
