visinia - The project I started as a web application for my own site, but over passage of time it grew and become such a thing, that i finally decided to be an open source, So other who want to have a website running on a engine which is robust, and gives plenty of option to expand the site in many ways.
You can get the source code from the codeplex site http://www.codeplex.com/visinia
isinia is based on asp.net and C#, visina is developed in such a way that a beginner level developer can easily understand it.
visinia has a modulad structure. Internally it is based on a asp.net website project, and a C# library called visinia.SmartEngine. The website project provides the userinterface. and the visinia.SmartEngine works as a brain for this website. the visinia.SmartEngine is written in c# consists of plenty of classes.
The modularity of visinia can be seen by its plugin structure. Actually visinia in itself provides no support for content management, because visinia main focus is on providing such a engine that is lean and robust, and which can be easily expanded in many ways, So all content management is provided through the plugins
Some plugins are part of the visinia core such as viNews , viBlog
viNews can be used to create a news portal like website such as cnn.com nytimes.
viBlog in itself is a blogging engine which can be used if you want to have a blog on your site
Many more plugins are on there way, will be released soon.
