Oqtane is a Modular Application Framework for Blazor
Please note that this project is owned by the .NET Foundation and is governed by the .NET Foundation Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct
To get started with Oqtane:
1. Install .NET Core 3.1 SDK (v3.1.300).
2. Install the Preview edition of Visual Studio 2019 (version 16.6 or higher) with the ASP.NET and web development workload enabled. Oqtane works with all editions of Visual Studio from Community to Enterprise. If you do not have a SQL Server installation available already and you wish to use LocalDB for development, you must also install the .NET desktop development workload.
3. Download or Clone the Oqtane source code to your local system. Open the Oqtane.sln solution file and Build the solution.
NOTE: If you have already installed a previous version of Oqtane and you wish to do a clean database install, simply reset the DefaultConnection value in the Oqtane.Server\appsettings.json file to "". This will trigger a re-install when you run the application which will execute the database installation scripts.
NOTE: If you want to submit pull requests make sure you install the Github Extension For Visual Studio. It is recommended you ignore any local changes you have made to the appsettings.json file before you submit a pull request. To automate this activity, open a command prompt and navigate to the /Oqtane.Server/ folder and enter the command "git update-index --skip-worktree appsettings.json"
This project is a work in progress and the schedule for implementing enhancements is dependent upon the availability of community members who are willing/able to assist.

Oqtane was created by Shaun Walker and is inspired by the DotNetNuke web application framework. Initially created as a proof of concept, Oqtane is a native Blazor application written from the ground up using modern .NET Core technology. It is a modular application framework offering a fully dynamic page compositing model, multi-site support, designer friendly templates (skins), and extensibility via third party modules.
