    Dialogue Update

    It looks like we might have a project that needs to use Dialogue, this means that I/we will be able to put some time into updating it for the latest version of Umbraco.

    On my list is the following:

    1. Replace Entity Framework with PetaPoco (And use Migrations)
    2. Remove the Theme engine and move all views into a standard structure in the root Views folder
    3. (Maybe) Make Topics use Nodes
    4. Go through Github issues / pull requests
    5. Update logic to use more Umbraco services/Core functionality

    If there is anything glaringly obvious that you think is missing then now is the time to speak up but I can't guarantee it will be added.

    I am sure you will be dealing with the install of the package where people are commonly getting a compilation error or the Microsoft.Web.Helpers.dll missing error. I just figured I should bring it up so that way it is in the forefront and should make adoption easier for those of us that have no access to the server itself for true code deployments.

    Hey Lee,

    A bit late to this but... Umbraco are moving away from PetaPoco to nPoco aren't they? Just thought I would mention it in case you didn't know that!

    Am curious for your reasons for ditching EF. Is it just too big a footprint for what your requirements are?

    The idea was to use as much 'Umbraco way' of doing things as possible. So, ditching 3rd party plugins as much as I can that Umbraco doesn't already use.
