NuGet Package Constellation.Foundation.Mvc

VERSION 10.0 is compiled for Sitecore 10.0 use and will not work on earlier versions.
Requires Sitecore 10.0
Requires .NET 4.8

Constellation is a collection of utilities for .NET CMS implementers.
The Foundation.Mvc assembly contains enhancements to Sitecore's MVC Rendering system:

GenerateRenderingSpecificCacheKey Mvc.RenderRendering pipeline processor:
Replaces the default GenerateCacheKey processor.

Includes the ID of the Rendering in the cache key, this allows for multiple renderings with different presentation
to use the same Datasource and be cached by Datasource without issues.

MinifyAndAddRecordedHtmlToCache Mvc.RenderRendering pipeline processor:
Replaces the default AddRecordedHtmlToCache processor. Uses the WebMarkupMin library to process the output HTML, Javascript, and CSS and minify it to improve page
delivery time through file size reduction. The default settings are "safe" but effective, however WebMarkupMin offers far more aggressive minification settings
for the bold.

GetControllerRenderer Mvc.GetRenderer pipeline processor:
Replaces the default GetControllerRenderer. Allows the developer to rely on the name of the Rendering to locate the appropriate controller to execute
(convention over configuration).

Very handy for Renderings that have a dedicated controller with one action that always produces the same output.

Provides a good base-class controller for Sitecore implementations:
* Forces the use of the Index() controller action (overrides possible)
* Provides the programmer with immediate access to the Rendering's DataSource and ContextItem (PageContext)
* Requires the programmer to assemble the model from the above Items.
* Automatically finds the View based upon the Rendering's XPath location in Sitecore

Replaces the stock MVC View, and provides methods for determining if the Page Mode "IsExperienceEditor" and "IsExperienceEditorEditing" which are
of particular use if the View needs to change behavior to support editors.

Independent engine for locating a View based on the Rendering Item's path in Sitecore. It has configuration settings that allow the programmer
to specify the location of Renderings in Sitecore and how they map to the location of the Views on disk. See the provided config file for details.
