    Could i create a template of Umbraco from VS

    Is it possible to have a way to create an Umbraco website (targeting a specific version) which then has the some of the default Umbraco config files set to the way i require? i.e. the web.config is set with certain app settings.

    Ideally i would like to do this via Visual Studio so when a user creates a new empty project i know i can use Package manager to install but anyway to copy in/modify the existing config files?

    Hi J,

    This sounds a bit like Umbraco Cloud baselines in my eyes:

    The idea here is that you have a base project containing all the basic settings/packages/code etc and use this to create new child projects off. If/when a change is needed for the baseline, you make the change and push it to the child projects.

    By utilising Umbraco Cloud, you should be able to save many work hours from setting up git repos, manually managing db changes, codebase changes etc.

    All the best,

    Ah so no way to do this ourselves? I dont believe we would have the option to move to the cloud just yet?

    You can create a custom VS template and use for setting up default doc types.
