  • New module added: Feed Aggregator

    6/27/2017 11:07:17 PM

    Most of the time you don't just want to have a website standing alone but you also want to hook it up with other services, social media integrations being the most basic example. Now we added the Feed Aggregator module to give you more options: It allows you to automatically sync content from RSS and Atom feeds to your DotNest site. So if you want to import content from other blogs, embed images from a remote image gallery or list videos from a YouTube channel, now you can do this easily.

  • New Feed Aggregator module for Orchard CMS

    6/27/2017 10:48:59 PM

    Did you ever wonder: "Hmm, I'd really want to build an RSS reader just for myself"? No? Well, no problem, because now you can do it any way! With our new Feed Aggregator module released for Orchard CMS you can synchronize RSS and Atom feeds to your Orchard site.

  • New theme: Basic Blog Theme

    6/25/2017 9:36:50 PM

    There are a lot of modules available on DotNest, but not that many themes to style your sites. You asked for more, and we listened: the Basic Blog Theme by Márk Bartha is now available for all DotNest sites!

  • Come to GPU Day and see how we allow .NET developers to create hardware

    6/2/2017 9:16:18 PM

    The GPU Day conference, organized by our partner, the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, is a now traditional HPC and parallel computing conference in Budapest, Hungary. After last year our Hastlayer project will again be a featured topic on 22-23 June. If you haven't heard, Hastlayer is the magic that can turn your .NET software into hardware, so your program is now substituted by a (faster and less power consuming) computer chip!

  • Laying the foundation of a sporty community - Lombiq's part in a new gymnasium

    5/5/2017 3:52:00 PM

    Here at Lombiq sometimes we "give back" not just to open source projects, but also to local communities of ours. In the town of Solymár, Hungary an initiative was started that we could support: Fészek Waldorf School together with Parthus Sport Association wanted to build a new gymnasium, which would not only serve the school's pupils but also the town's 10 000 residents.

  • Sending texts via Twilio in Orchard CMS

    4/24/2017 9:31:14 AM

    A simple Orchard CMS module for sending texts via Twilio. The module provides a workflow activity called SmsActivity that you can use to send the texts. Just two fields are required: recipients and message. Recipients is a comma separated list of phone numbers. Both fields are tokenized. You can also send texts programmatically by injecting ITwilioService and calling SendSms. Enter your Twilio settings in Settings -> Twilio.

  • Adding a cookie consent pop up in Orchard CMS

    4/23/2017 3:55:47 PM

    This is the simplest of modules for adding a cookie consent pop up to your Orchard CMS website. It uses the SilkTide JavaScript library, which is neat and quite unobtrusive (no taking over the screen or shifting content all over the shop). The module offers a few configuration options available in Settings -> Cookie Consent. It is open source, generously donated to the world by Media On Demand Streaming Ltd and lazily maintained by me. You can grab it here.

  • C# 7 Underscore as Digit Separator in Numeric Literals

    3/16/2017 6:20:32 PM

    C# 7 has been released by Microsoft and can be found in Visual Studio 2017. Two C# 7 features I have already mentioned include C# 7 Tuples and C# 7 Local Functions, both of which I am very excited about as I use these features quite a bit in Python. Another new feature in C# 7, but less useful to me personally, is the ability to use an underscore as a digit separator in numeric literals in C# 7....

    3/13/2017 11:50:50 PM

    Algolia is a pretty neat hosted indexing/search service, it's a bit like Lucene in the cloud, but extremely fast. Now it's available for all DotNest sites!
