Examining the Digitial Experience File Synch

Stephen Hesmer demoed a wonderful new tool as the Digitial Experience conference and I wanted to install it and see how it worked.

  1. install node.js and you can find that here : https://nodejs.org/download/ After that verify it is installed correctly by executing node -v in a command prompt.
  2. Get desynch tool https://github.com/digexp/dxsync/blob/master/release/DXSyncCLI-1.0.0.zip?raw=true
  3. Extract the zip to a directory and execute the install.cmd if on windows

It is that easy and you are done.  Now to play with it  Create a directory wherever, I created C:\work\themes\newtest.  Once there run dxsync init It asks us what theme to connect to

As you can see we can then pick what theme to talk to


Next we run dxsync run

We then see the following notificiation


I added a comment into theme.html and we now can see this change

Then we could also see it up live in the server as it will invalidate the cache.

One limitation is it still cannot create a new theme so you still need to follow these steps, http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSHRKX_8.5.0/help/panel_help/h_theme_skin_add_theme.dita

So in all it is very nice as it gets rid of the need to have a webdav client as it replaced it for you, plus it auto syncs the changes for you and helps with change resolution.
