successor to mojoPortal based on .NET Core MVC

Hello mojoPortal Team,

I read on anther forum post about successor to mojoPortal based on .NET Core MVC, which are in your plan. I used mojoPortal for more than 10 years, and still I like it, but because there are many new frontend and backend changes on dotnet products, and while dotnet core is very attractive, I'm thinking about finding another CMS developed for dotnet Core, 

When I read that you have a plan to develop a new CMS similar to mojoPortal but with new technology, it very good news for me. but I want to know more about this plan and when you think a public update will be published? is that also be opensource ?

Is there any more details, you can share with us?

Thanks

Re: successor to mojoPortal based on .NET Core MVC

Hi,

We are still developing mojoPortal and are working on a release right now. We tend to go a while without releasing anything but we are always improving mojo in many different ways.

As for an MVC version, the original developer of mojoPortal did decide to start a new project and originally he was planning on making some kind of an upgrade path to it from mojoPortal. His new project was acquired a while back by another company and he never built any kind of migration path. The new project is less of a content management system and more of a collection of separate packages that do different things and one could build a CMS with them. It's good stuff for sure but it doesn't really replace mojoPortal in a lot of ways.

We are in the early stages of planning and have done some development on a new CMS based on MVC and .NET Core that will be an upgrade from mojoPortal. We don't have a lot of information that we're willing to share publicly on it yet though. It will definitely be Open Source.

Thanks,
Joe
