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.
