    Editing complex data in Umbraco backoffice

    Looking for some advice on how to edit complex content in in the back office. I'm very experienced with .NET, MVC and Razor but something of a novice with Umbraco.

    The content is a collection of timetables (rail) and some rules to say which one applies on a given date.

    I am currently storing each timetable in a row in a SQL Server table, and the timetable data is stored as JSON - each timetable about 700-1000 lines of it. I am storing a year's worth of rules in another table, also as JSON.

    I can envisage how I might write the necessary pages (not using Angular.js!), but not how I'd integrate this into Umbraco. At the moment, I haven't even fathomed out how to invoke a controller derived from UmbracoAuthorizedController.

    Any hints on how best to structure this?

    Sounds like a perfect use-case for Fluidity => https://our.umbraco.com/packages/backoffice-extensions/fluidity/

    Unfortunately fluidicity does not work on V8

    My fault - missed the umbraco8 tag!

    I'm sure it will eventually be ported across...
