Doc Type Grid Editor for Umbraco 9 is only intended to make it easier to upgrade existing Umbraco 8 projects using Doc Type Grid Editor. Please don't use it for new projects. The package will only live as long as no breaking changes happen in Umbraco (eg. new backoffice)
Doc Type Grid Editor is an advanced grid editor for the Umbraco Grid, offering similar functionality as the macro grid editor but using the full power of the doc type editor and data types.
With the macro grid editor you are limited to only using the macro builder and thus the handful of parameter editors that are available. Of course you can create / config your own parameter editors, however this is cumbersome compared to how we can configure data types.
With the Doc Type Grid Editor then, we bridge that gap, allowing you to reuse doc type definitions as blue prints for complex data to be rendered in a grid cell.
