CommunityServer Skin Comparer

June 11, 2005 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

While upgrading a CS 1.0 site to CS 1.1, I wanted a quick way to
compare skins. I wrote a little aspx script that loads all the *.ascx
files in one directory and compares them to the files in another
directory. It checks all the controls on the skin and makes sure there
is a corresponding control with the same ID and type as in the first
directory. Here’s what it looks like:

If Telligent adds skins or adds/changes controls on those skins between versions, this will help you find the changes quickly.

Hope that helps someone out there!

Update: Now also compares controls with no ID.

Hi, I'm John Dyer. In my day job, I build websites and create online seminary software for a seminary in Dallas. I also like to release open source tools including a pretty popular HTML5 video player and build tools that help people find best bible commentaries and do bible study. And just for fun, I also wrote a book on the theology of technology and media.
