I was thinking of creating a separate project that would include code for extending C1, but doesn't go into the Core, so it can be easier for people to use these extensions. It could also be a way of showing the Composite Developers what the demands are, what enhancements are being used in the wild and maybe they will patch it into the core at some point.

  • extensionless page urls
  • nicer media-urls
  • SiteMapProvider
  • Sitemap according to the sitemap protocols
  • masterpages
  • Nicer media upload and previewing
  • Automatic www redirection
  • other nifty enhancements

An example is http://www.sogm.gl/ which was just released by DOT GL using the extensions mentioned above. Since C1 is such a nice open source product we feel committed to give back some of the code we have been writing that makes our experience of developing C1 sites just a tad nicer :)

Awesome! Creating a 'Composite C1 Extensions' project sound like a fantastic contribution and all the items you have on your list sound highly sought after. And yes, this will keep us on out toes and give us a great reference point ;-)

Okay, so the initial version is up. Spend quite some time trying to isolate and refactor the code from our own internal libraries for open sourcing it, but here we go


Tried to write some documentation as well the best i could for using the different modules. As more code is released i will add more documentation as well.

Fantastic!! Heard from @snyhde he is working on an extension that can do 'schema / entity relation mapping' features for dynamic data types (so you can see all your types with columns, foreign keys etc.) - he was looking for a way to share it. I guess he can get in touch with you and get access to upload?

Thanks for sharing!

Of course he can :)
