The Imtech Style Library Extension has been inspired by the Imtech Master Pages and Page Layouts Extension. The edit functionality that it provides has been something that I have used a lot while working with developing SharePoint solutions on SharePoint 2007. For the last few years I’ve been working almost exclusively on Web Content Management (WCM) solutions. One thing that I’ve been editing perhaps even more than Page Layouts and Master Pages were the XSLT files used by the Content Query Web Part (CQWP). Looking at the enhancements of the CQWP in SharePoint 2010 I will be very likely using it heavily as well. To make working with these XSLT files easier, I decided to create an extension for the Visual Studio SharePoint development tools that would allow to view and edit the contents of the XSL files used by the CQWP.
Introducing: Imtech Style Library Extension
Imtech Style Library Extension is based on the functionality introduced in the Imtech Master Pages and Page Layouts Extension. Just like the previous extension, it allows you to view and edit the contents of text files and check them in or out. Above that the Imtech Style Library Extension supports folders, meaning that you can now browse through folders as well.
