We chose SignalR for the technology that we want to learn and we used that to make a websocket connection between Sitecore and the browser. We were trying to make a list that would be versitile enough and could be used in various situations. So we came to the conclusion that we should be able to render almost anything into this list. We built this module to be as general as possible from the ground up.

    How To Use The Module
    After you installed everything you need create your own Live Lists. To create a new one you just need create an item from /sitecore/templates/Branches/LiveList/Live List Folder branch. Here you can find the following 3 folders:

    Live Lists Folder

    Here you can create your Live List Container items, these will be your root items for your lists

    Live List Container

    1. Max Items On Page Load - How many items you want to show after the page is loaded
    2. Title - Title of the module
    3. Show more text - Button text on the module

    In this container you can store your Live List Items

    Live List Item

    1. Rendering - which rendering the editor wants to use from the Live List Renderings folder
    2. Datasource - which datasource the editor wants to use from the Datasources folder depending on the selected Rendering

    Live List Rendering Item

    Need to be setup by developers or administrators. Here you need to setup the Rendering Definitions (which Rendering with which Templates is usable)

    1. Rendering
    2. Allowed Templates


    Here the editors can create their own Datasources for the Live List items. This folder contains items based on your custom templates.

    Global Settings

    The global setting item is found here: /sitecore/system/Modules/LiveList/Live List Settings. You can setup here Use Default CSS or not not. Because by default the component has it's own style but you can overwrite it with your own.

    Sitecore 8.0 specialities
    If you would like to install the module for Sitecore 8.0 then you need to do some additional changes to make it work. Go to your web.config and:

    1. Add targetFramework="4.5" requestValidationMode="2.0" to system.web/httpRuntime
    2. If you get the following exception:
    WebForms UnobtrusiveValidationMode requires a ScriptResourceMapping for 'jquery'. Please add a ScriptResourceMapping named jquery(case-sensitive).

    Then you need to add <add key="ValidationSettings:UnobtrusiveValidationMode" value="None" /> to your <appSettings>.
