    Future for LeBlender on Cloud?

    Hi Guys.

    I've been using LeBlender on Cloud, but the latest NuGet doesn't seem to work on Cloud (, but using seems to work great.

    However, I'm not sure that grid.editors.config.js isn't overridden when Umbraco updates on the cloud, and if I move my LeBlender editors to another package.manifest file (once they are "done", since they cannot be edited in Umbraco after moving them) it works great! BUT LeBlender throws an exception that is logged, since it is hardcodet to look in grid.editors.config.js for these.

    I would love to keep using LeBlender on our cloud projects, but I am unsure of what the future will bring for LeBlender, since Novicel bought Lecoati?

    This is a great & old package that I've used a lot over the years, and the alternative (writing our own grid-editors) in angular takes a lot more work than using this great package.

    So... What will the future bring? An updated LeBlender Nuget Package that just works on the cloud? :D

    Hi Niels

    I don't know about the future for LeBlender, but I would recommend you to take a look at Doc Type Grid Editor. It won't give you a GUI for making grid editors, but you get to use document types instead.

    You then "just" have to create your package.manifest containing references to the doctypes you need to use as grid editors. Think of it as Nested Content for grid editors.

    For v8, there is some work going on to port DTGE, but also there is Grid v2 in Core, which will use the concept of doctypes as grid editors. But there is no ETA on that.

    There is also a port of LeBlender in the making --

    But you are right in everything else. V8 left the grid editors in a limbo

    Thanx, Søren that seems like a great alternative and I don't mind that there's no UI... Less things for other people to f*ck up :)
