Oxite is a simple blog engine written using ASP.NET MVC, and is designed with two main goals:

  • To provide a sample of ‘core blog functionality’ in a reusable fashion. Blogs are simple and well understood by many developers, but the set of basic functions that a blog needs to implement (trackbacks, rss, comments, etc.) are fairly complex. Hopefully this code helps.
  • To provide a real-world sample written using ASP.NET MVC.

What I Like About Oxite

  • Reference implementation supports XHTML and CSS
  • Built on ASP.NET MVC
  • Incorporates jQuery and ASP.NET AJAX (yet to be used extensively)
  • Background service infrastructure (i.e. trackbacks)
  • Pluggable architecture
  • Clean database schema
