Dyndle is a framework that helps you build ASP.NET MVC applications based on Tridion and DD4T. Out of the box, Dyndle comes with a lot of functionality which you traditionally had to write yourself. With Dyndle, you can bring down the development time and improve the performance and the quality of your website.
Dyndle stands for ‘Dynamic Delivery’. It is pronounced as ‘dindle’, in case you were wondering.
Dyndle is an open source framework, but it’s controlled by Trivident. We decide when and what to release, and we review all pull requests. We also provide the website (including extensive documentation) and the SCM service.
Yes and no. The Dyndle framework was launched in May 2020, but it is heavily based on an internal project which Trivident has been using and refining for years. This framework is used by many of our customers already.
No. Dyndle makes use of DD4T, it doesn’t replace it. DD4T is a light, general-purpose layer on top of Tridion, to expose Tridion content as simple data objects. Dyndle is a layer of functionality on top of DD4T, aimed at speeding up development and improving the quality and performance of your application.
DXA (Digital Experience Accelerator) is owned and controlled by SDL, with roughly the same scope as Dyndle. The big difference is that DXA is a web application which you can use off-the-shelf, while Dyndle is a framework which you use in your own web application. We think that this approach is more transparent and leaves you in full control of your application. You can simply make more choices yourself, while still benefiting from the many features we have to offer.
However, we urge you to check out DXA as well and choose for yourself.
We are planning to release new modules at least twice a year. Some of the modules we have in store for you, are Personalization, Notification and Forms.
