Bento Editor

The Bento Editor is a content block editor for Umbraco 8 that takes advantage of the infinite editing features of Umbraco 8.

The aim of Bento is to simplify the experience of creating creative layouts in Umbraco without compromising brand and design standards.

It is heavily inspired by the best parts of the original Umbraco Grid Editor with the DTGE plugin, but with the simplicity of editors such as Stacked Content.

To get started you are going to need to:

  • Create a document type that will be used as a composition to indentify Bento Items
  • Create a document type that will be used for type folders in a reusable library
  • Create a document type that will be used for a reusable library
  • Setup your Datatypes for Bento Item Bento Stack.
  • Create a set of document types to represent your various reusable content block Items and one use embedable Elements. These need to inherit your Bento Item Composition.
  • Build awesome websites.
