    I really like Umbraco (, It has a decent community, and is on DotNetCore these days makes it very easy to use. You can setup most basic things yourself, but since it exists as a satellite to your site. You can integrate with it as deeply or not as you want. Plus the workflow for defining content is nice, the customer-facing UI is also slick, and adding custom elements to it and extending is easy too. Plus it's free.

  • Why making Umbraco headless makes sense
    2 projects | | 12 Feb 2022
    Because of this, the Umbraco HQ created the Umbraco Heartcore project that builds upon the existing Umbraco CMS by adding a headless integration in GraphQL. The only problem with this solution is the pricing. Because Umbraco CMS is open-source and free to use, you might see this product solution as a barrier to entry. It also makes it impossible to use your infrastructure to manage your CMS as they require the usage of Umbraco Cloud.

    All the values is lifted from the default tag definition (lines 18-22), with just one modification. I added ".DataOnly" to the alias, and "(Data Only)" to the name, to separate it from the default tags editor.

    These are lifted from the TagConfiguration class in the source code of Umbraco. Note how I just copy and paste everything, including the views.
