uComponents: Days of Future Past
For a long time I have remained silent on the future of the uComponents project; please don’t mistake this for ignorance, it was not intentional. The truth is that it has been a struggle to lead the project through the transition from Umbraco v6 to v7 … and I’ve probably failed to do. The ongoing dilemma of the uComponents project is two-fold: where are we right now? and where are we heading? If you look…
Deploying complex Property Editors (Archetype) with Umbraco Courier on UaaS
TL;DR; I wrote a Courier DataResolver for the Archetype property-editor. The code is currently only available on GitHub and has only been tested against Umbraco-as-a-Service.

Luckily since our own v6.0.0 release, we have found the time to make the…
A question was asked on the Our Umbraco forum about how to downgrade a version of uComponents (from v5.4.0 to v4.1.0 – as they were using Umbraco v4.7.2).

Firstly, DO NOT uninstall the package from…
