EAV & 2sxc API Documentation v11.02.01
This is the documentation for EAV and 2sxc APIs. It's fairly advanced, so if you're new to 2sxc, best start with 2sxc.org.
2sxc - The CMS / CMF of DNN (DotNetNuke)
2sxc is a CMS-Plugin for DNN/DotNetNuke. It makes content editing easier than Wordpress. It's also a CMF like Drupal. And a very cool EAV data-management system. And an online REST JSON database. And a lot more.
2sxc is basically used to provide web-site-builder functionality to DNN, both in a simple Content mode (where users just add images, designed text/image blocks, links etc.) or in App mode, where user add standalone functional apps like blogs, galleries and more. Most apps are on github and can be downloaded from the app-catalog.
Where to Start
2sxc is an easy to use dynamic content system for .net Platforms like DNN. If you are just getting started, then this is probably not where you should be looking. Focus first on:
- Content on 2sxc.org like the learn section
- Apps on 2sxc Catalog which contains many ready-to-use apps like blogs and news, as well as tutorials
- The DNN Tutorials on 2sxc.org
With that knowledge, you can already create amazing stuff.
Everything you find here is very advanced and you won't need it for normal everyday work.
