Thanks, I'll look into Web Parts, might make it a good deal easier.

MVC is largely overkill, but I've gotten used to breaking the model with code generated views. After that, going back to codebehind web forms seems hard to debug again- especially using entity framework to access a cloud database that I have zero control over. But at least it's work.

What is going to be fun, this time around, is figuring out where I can plug my widget data into their data model. I may have to abuse some of their tables to do it.

Does anybody know of a good Javascript, .NET, or HTML5 (or combination of the three) library for doing a user-customizable widget grid?

I've seen it done enough that this *should* be a readily available control, but I don't seem to be able to find one with my first three rounds of google searching, I'm probably calling it the wrong thing.

What I want is to be able to configure a user's home page on the website with their choice & order of several widgets.
