I am very new to sitefinity, and I must admit I am a little overwhelmed! My first instinct was to develop a new module to implement my custom requirements, but wow - what a task it is to simply create CRUD for a model!
I would like to ask an open question; how do you guys go about actually developing a module? I am interested in what extra tools you use? do you debug via iis or straight visual studio host? How do you get around the fact that you can only ever 'install' a module once - how on earth are you supposed to develop the install code?!
Perhaps I am going about things the wrong way - are you supposed to register all of the views and menu items within sitefinity first, get everything running nicely, -then- write the install code?
Looking forward to useful tips,
