Useful and interesting services to enhance your features - Dojo Course

Event handlers, Dojo Course, Background task, Scheduled task

Dojo Course is almost over, so we move on to the spicy parts of the Orchard API that enable you to do really interesting things!

  • An in-depth recap on what we did so far in our PersonList feature.
  • Content querying: using Orchard's LINQ-like API, the IContentManager service to retreive content pieces (including usage and optimization points).
  • How to integrate your features into the administration menu?
  • Running code periodically using background tasks.
  • Running code at a specified time using scheduled tasks.
  • Creating system-wide event handlers to be able to communicate with other pieces of logic in an even more loosely tied way.
  • And a little addition to migrations: you can implement an Uninstall method in your Migrations class to add some logic which will run when your feature is being removed from a system (hopefully nobody will use it ;) ).
  • Stay tuned for the (really) last part of the Dojo Course before Christmas!

Remember: if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask them on the Orchard Discussion board. Make sure to prefix your thread's title with "Dojo Course - "! We keep an eye on these threads. Also follow us on Twitter to get notified about the latest Dojo Course news, including when a new tutorial is posted.

Do you have some feedback about the course? Please send it in.
