What Is Ignition?
Ignition is an open source development accelerator built by members of the Perficient team and released to the public free of charge under the MIT license. You can find it on GitHub, at, and the documentation here:
Ignition started simply as “how we do things” and the collective wisdom of what we’ve learned over the years of doing Sitecore implementations. Over time, it became more sophisticated and we started formalizing it, and it has evolved and morphed several times over the years. It’s based on our passion for using good SOLID development practices as well as strongly supporting all of the features of Sitecore that were getting hamstrung by practices that weren’t designed to enable them.
The end result is what we have now. A lean, mean, Sitecore machine! We’re really proud of what we’ve put together and we would love to talk more about Ignition with you. Tweet to us at any of our personal accounts, or mention @ignition_sc and we’ll all see it, so find us there and we’ll talk!
