nr_sync - TYPO3 Content Synchronization

Introduction

  • Prepares your Content for a synchronization wherever you want
  • Easy integration for your own extensions
  • No content editing on live systems anymore

Description

Workflow

The extension provides an easy and editor friendly way to prepare the content for a synchronization to other environments e.g. live, testing or development systems. All the synchronizations can be done complete or incrementel to keep the required load to a absolut minimum. The extension won't do the synchronization by itself.

Synchronization procedure

BE-Module

  1. After creating new or changing existing content, the editor can open the module, can choose the content type and will have access only to the content he is allowed to change. The editor can perform a full synchronization. So all the content from a choosen table will be prepared for the synchronization. It's also possible to avoid a full sync and execute an incremental sync. So, only elements newer or changed since last sync will be added to the new sync.
  2. After creating all the dump files required for the synchronization you will find a folder called db in the root directory of TYPO3. There you will find subfolders with the target names and within all the required files.
  3. The task to transfer the files to the targets systems and apply them to the databases isn't supported by the extension itself.
