Constellation is a collection of utilities for .NET CMS implementers.

The Foundation.Mvc.Patterns library is an opinionated library that provides some base Controller and Repository classes for jumpstarting
a Sitecore project. The purpose is to get developers to better separate data access logic from controllers and also to hide some uninteresting concerns.

Repositories: Classes which accept a context to specify the conditions for accessing data in Sitecore along with facts for use in the query. The Repository
is responsible for getting the results of a query, any caching, and any transformation into ViewModel output.

Base Repositories:
Repository - Just the basics of setting up the relationship between the repository and the controller.
CachingRepository - Adds caching of the repository's output to the mix.
SingleItemRepository - Includes both of above and is centered around queries that will retrieve a single Item.
ItemListRepository - Includes the first two and is centered around queries taht will retrieve multiple Items.

Controllers: Classes which are responsible for handling the transition from Sitecore to the View, including setting up a Repository Context, and getting the
results from the Repository for sending to the View.

Base Controllers:
DatasourceRenderingController - Use when a Rendering has a Datasource Item and that Item is what's being rendered.
ItemListController - Use when a Rendering will present a number of Items that have to be looked up in some fashion.

On Sitecore startup, this package will scan all assemblies for IController and IRepository implementations and automatically add them to Dependency Injection.
This feature can be disabled/changed via the config file for this package.
