I thought I'd start a thread here as Twitter / Slack seems a bit too instant and I feel this thread might be of interest to others but maybe not!
I have a project in Visual Studio that has Umbraco 8 in it, I have a Project.Core and a Project.Web setup within it. .Web has Umbraco CMS and .Core has controllers / models etc.
This is a clean install of U8.
I have another project which has U8 also installed but it's been worked on and I would like to use a lot of the content / doctypes / media from it as a starter kit. I've created a package from the backoffice but then I had a realisation. If I install this as a starter kit, I wont have all the controllers / models etc setup correctly within my .Core project as I presume they will be compiled.
So my question is, how would you setup a baseline project that can be spun up quickly to get a site ready for customising?
Should I keep one original project which is always used for code changes and then maybe get Azure DevOps to create a package of this project (I've no idea how to do this but I'm thinking it must be possible) which could be used on a new fresh install?
Any thoughts / suggestions would be great.
The other option I am currently thinking is, I take the current project, clone it, and then clean out everything that I don't need now and use this as the new baseline.
I could then just clone this project each time I need to spin up a site however, it does mean I'd need to copy the database each time which wouldn't be great as I don't want users to be copied and I probably don't need all the content either.
Work in progress :
I've installed a fresh, clean, install of U8. I've then use uSync to bring over all the doctypes from the original site. This keeps things cleaner. I can now go through the new site and delete anything that I don't need on the new clean version.
Once I've done that, I will look at creating a NuGet Package which can be installed on future installs that are ready to go.
I think this is the cleanest way I can do it.
