a.k.a “Rendering Wrappers”
tl;dr; MVC HTML Helper and custom CSS styling to add chrome highlighting around renderings in Experience Editor mode.
I presented this module at the Sitecore User Group London on 12th January 2017. You can download the slides for that lightning talk here.
A few months ago I presented Session 4 of the Unofficial Sitecore Training sessions that Akshay “Be My Friend” Sura and Mike “Blog All The Things” Reynolds have been hosting. If you’re new to Sitecore or need a refresher course then I suggest you head on over and watch the videos on the series, there’s some really useful info in there from some seasoned Sitecore developers and gurus.
Anyhow, I decided presenting stuff and virtually pointing things out is hard so I added a fairly early version of some code that we had been using and experimenting with on our current project. This would make it easier to see components in Experience Editor mode and therefore easier for the audience to follow along with what I was doing. Some people noticed this at least 🙂
