There are some docs on the Internet, i.e 

  • Create a Hello World module in Orchard;
  • Create a simple Text Editor module in Orchard.

But they are not using Visual Studio.


My question is, how to create a module in Visual Studio? Do we have a template to do so?

The process I found (not sure if they are all correct):

1. Download source code of Orchard;

2. Open .sln in Visual Studio;

3. Run the Orchard.exe command line (codegen module) to create a module (can't we do it directly in VS??):

4. What's next? How to add the business logic in my custom module?


Many thanks!

Add the project to your solution and start coding. That's it.
