    How does it work with the grid?

    Hi, awesome package, I'm about to try it on a relatively large site with heavy use of the grid. Any potential issues I should be aware of? It will be on dev so not so worried about breaking things, but curious if you could foresee any potential pain points.

    Hi Amir, glad to hear you like the package. Grid data is held as one long JSON string against the property, so it won't be very refined (you can't really see what has changed), but it will work.

    One of my plans is to add a JSON comparer (probably a drawer from the right-hand side), so it's clearer for grids and nested content. Umbraco 8 first though!

    For larger sites, it just takes longer. Publishing the content is what takes all of the time. Transferring 600 content nodes into an empty site took just over 10 minutes. Obviously, the fewer updates to the local site, the quicker it will be.

    I'll be interested to hear how you get on.

    Thanks, Stuart.

    Another question, any idea how it would work with a 3rd party grid editor like LeBlender?

    Sorry for the late reply, missed the notification and just saw this when I went to download the package again.

    Hi again Amir,

    I have looked at that as I use it for my personal site.

    The content of a LeBlender editor will be transferred across as it is just one long JSON string, but I think you will need to transfer any Grid Editors you have created by hand (either using the config file or creating manually in the back office).

    enter image description here

    The views will also need to be transferred across manually. They live under:

    /Views/Partials/Grid/Editors
