Artisteer ASP.NET MVC 4 plugin

Finally I could find some inspiration for creating the Artisteer ASP.NET MVC 4 plugin.
It actually wasn’t that much work, but I have a job to do as well ;)

If you don’t know Artisteer or need to install it you can click the banner below.

Artisteer - Web Design Generator

To install the plugin you should use Artisteer 4.0 or above.

Open Artisteer and go to File->Export->More Templates… and you will see something like this:

Click on ‘New’ and you will see the ASP.NET MVC 4 plugin, install it and it should appear in the export dropdown in your top window menu.

The plugin will create an ASP.NET MVC4 project that can be opened in Visual Studio 2012.

It’s based on the default ASP.NET MVC4 project template, so there is still quite some work to do for optimization.

If you have any suggestions please let me know.

    Love Artisteer … Thanks for the MVC 4 plug in!!! by the way, I noticed that I created a menu with Item with Sub pages, After exporting it and opened it with VS2012, it is not showing the submenu. Any ideas? Thanks a lot

      Never mind… It was my mistake. I actually exported the project, open it, and it works. I think my issue was that I started with MVC 3 export and tried to replace the files with your MVC 4 files. Thank you again. Great work!

    Hey Chris,

    I notice that when artisteer is exporting to mVC 4, the dropdown menu does not work or the dropdown child menu does not dropdown to display. I tried to modify the html that was generated but it is too complex. Do you plans to fix this in the next release.

    Just trialled the new MVC4 plugin for Artisteer.

    Brilliant! Took less than a day to create a new design and then integrate it into a vanilla C# MVC4 project – looks really cool.

    Thanks Chriz for your hard work.

    • July 30, 2013 at 9:48 am | #11

      The only way is by the marketplace from the Artisteer application (File->Export->Marketplace).

    How can I remove the menu structure created and replace with my own?
    Where is the code pulled from when using “@RenderSection(“DefaultHeader”)”

    • August 29, 2013 at 12:04 pm | #15

      There should be a partial view called _DefaultMenu.cshtml in the Views->Shared folder (if not visible click on ‘show all files’ in the top menu of the solution explorter and include it in the project).
      You can replace this with your own menu.

    Like a lot of people, I’ve only the home edition of Artisteer (for 2 sites per year it’s enought) BUT I will use the CMS Composite C1 (http://www.composite.net/) in Asp.Net MVC Razor and the license of your template is open source.

    Is it possible that adapt your source for this CMS (so having source on Git or SVN first) ?

    Best regards

      When you install the plugin from the marketplace, you can find the source code somewhere in the folder C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Artisteer\Artisteer4\Library\Data\Templates

    Hello Chris,

    Do you mind send to me all of your plugins (C:\Program Files\Artisteer 4\Library\Data\Templates) ? Please, i need all plugins. I can’t install them because my upgrade period was expired. I don’t want to upgrade artisteer anymore. Thank you.

    Unfortunately my license has expired and I do not go to merket, if you can kindly send it to you that you’re the author.

    Thank you.
