Module development and Orchard APIs (training topic)

The below topics are the core of what an Orchard developer should know. Other, less important items are listed under Extended APIs.


Most of this comes from Sipke Schoorstra’s Orchard Harvest session content (APIs, content part development).

We've created a demo module for the purpose of teaching all the topics here with well explained examples. See the Orchard Training Demo module.

The Orchard Cheat Sheet by Sébastien Ros is a great small API reference.

This page is part of the Orchard Dojo Library!

This page and many others here are part of the open-source, portable package of Orchard 1.x goodies: the Orchard Dojo Library for Orchard 1.x. The Library is freely accessible by anyone; just go to its repository to download its full content (you can even download the textual content of the Library as a big concatenated document in HTML), file issues or fork it! You can even edit it online on Bitbucket, just click on the Edit link in the upper right corner!

Note that the Library also has an Orchard Core version, check it out here!
