Websites and Web Applications Made Easier

cloudscribe is a set of components that can easily be assembled into complete applications in various configurations using our project template for Visual Studio 2019 or our project template for the dotnet new command. See the Introduction for more details. All of the individual components are available via Nuget, and the source code is available on GitHub. This site is built with cloudscribe components.

We also have some commercial "cloudscribe" components providing advanced functionality for the price of a few beers.

Main Component Groups

cloudscribe Core

cloudscribe Core (Documentation | NuGet | GitHub) is a set of components that provides a multi-tenant (or single tenant) web application foundation with everything you need for managing sites, users, roles, and claims. It is an implementation of ASP.NET Identity, but with full management capabilities already built for you unlike the standard ASP.NET Identity implementation. With optional IdentityServer4 integration it provides a complete solution for protecting APIs with OpenID Connect. For data storage it supports Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, or PostgreSQL via Entity Framework Core, or NoDb "no database" file system storage.

cloudscribe SimpleContent

cloudscribe SimpleContent (Documentation | NuGet | GitHub) is a set of components providing very user friendly editable pages and blog posts using HTML or Markdown. It supports the Metaweblog API and can be used with Open Live Writer in addition to editing right in the web browser. For smaller sites it can work without a database, storing content as files on disk via NoDb "no database" file system storage. It also supports database storage via Entity Framework Core with current implementations for Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, and PostgreSQL. cloudscribe SimpleContent can work with cloudscribe Core as the user back end or with cloudscribe SimpleAuth

Other Components

In addition to the "big" features, cloudscribe Core and cloudscribe SimpleContent, there are lots of smaller component libraries that are useful in solving common problems and will save you time. See the complete list of cloudscribe libraries to learn more.

Great template, an amazing amount of well implemented functionality comes for free when using this template. A surprisingly full-featured CMS is available after the first build.

Just dead easy. Crank up a site with IdentityServer already baked in and ready for multitenant.
This template stopped me inventing the wheel over and over again...
