If a clean slate is a tad overwhelming

Umbraco’s best feature is that it’s a clean slate and super flexible. This way you solely decide how it should look and work. However, we acknowledge that a promise of a clean slate can be a bit overwhelming for some, especially if you’re new to Umbraco.

That’s why we’ve created the starter kit - a basic site with a sleek minimalistic design wherein the most essential site features are included. This makes it easy for you to play around, try to customize a bit yourself and basically, discover how Umbraco can help you manage your content, with your own fingers. And when it’s ready, you can even bring it to live.

During your installation of Umbraco you'll be able to apply the starter kit.
