What is ProngHorn and why

Most LOB applications can be done using just one or two master pages and one area of content per url. In this context ASP.NET MVC can be used out of the box with no or just a few changes. HTML.RenderAction can be used in liu of widgets in the page without a big penalty on composition.

But there is also a need for more complex applications, thus were web pages are build from a collection of discrete components (widgets) and where they should be added or removed in a dynamic fashion without the involvement of a developer. Those are the scenarios where CMS frameworks come to play. ProngHorn is not a CMS but it provides the tools to make this type of composition on top of ASP.NET MVC.
