Updated CMS 7.5 XML resources tool

Been a while since I blogged but a new addition to the family has taken most of my previous extra code time. But enough with the excuses.

I have made some minor updates to my XML resources tool.

  • Color coding properties that are not translated.
    If the translated property name is equal to the core property name or empty the table row gets a background color.
  • Setting path to the xml files folder is done via tool gui and stored in DDS.

    In the previous version this was changed through an app setting. If not set the fallback is /lang/.

    The path should both start and end with /. I guess that /lang/ or /Resources/LanguageFiles/ is the most common paths.

The Git repo is updated. (Not the nuget package though).

does this tool takes the following scenario into consideration:

Having multiple production servers behind an loadbalancer. So the language files are on 2 servers. Changing the resource will it reflect on both servers?

Vishal: No it doesn't reflect on several servers in a load balanced environment. The main usage for me have been managing texts in dev environment and then deploying to production server/s.
