Decoupling Umbraco from your front-end website

Jason Deacon, from Australia’s design and development company Wiliam, writes about how to use a back-end instance of Umbraco 7, which is completely decoupled from the front-end (an ASP.NET MVC 5 site).

Decoupling Umbraco
Our approach leverages a file called “Umbraco.config” which is really just a XML file which Umbraco publishes all its public content to whenever a node is published in the interface. This XML structure mirrors the document types and properties of the site structure populated in Umbraco and therefore offers the perfect snapshot of the content the site can serve, without having to query a database for it.
