Oxite, An open source CMS based on ASP.NET MVC by Microsoft

 Oxite Logo - Photo taken from I know it’s a little old but in this post I want to talk about Oxite.

Oxite is a new open source blogging system based on ASP.NET MVC which built by Erik Porter, Nathan Heskew, Mike Sampson and Duncan Mackenzie.

This is a simple blog engine written using ASP.NET MVC, and is designed with two main goals:

· To provide a sample of ‘core blog functionality’ in a reusable fashion. Blogs are simple and well understood by many developers, but the set of basic functions that a blog needs to implement (trackbacks, RSS, comments, etc.) are fairly complex. Hopefully this code helps.

· To provide a real-world sample written using ASP.NET MVC.

As they said, this blog engine built not only for developers and as sample and this has been used in MIX Online too.

Here is some other information from

Oxite was developed carefully and painstakingly to be a great blogging platform, or a starting point for your own web site project with CMS needs. Its line-up of sexy attributes includes: provider-based architecture allowing you to swap out database and search providers (SQL Server DB, local and Live search providers included), built for testability and hence most likely to be voted "hottest in class" by TDD fans (repositories, everything has an interface, etc.), database file and string resource storage so that files get stored in database and strings stored for localization, built to take full advantage of ASP.NET MVC but broken into assemblies so that even ASP.NET WebForm developers can use the data backend and utility code, supports use of Visual Studio Team Suite (DB Pro, Test, etc.), and Background Services Architecture (sending trackbacks, emails, etc. all done as a background process to prevent delays on the web site itself).
