Diplo God Mode

Diplo God Mode makes Umbraco developers invincible!

This custom tree in the Settings section of Umbraco 10, 9 or 8 (or Developer section if you are using the v7 version) allows you to browse, query and search your document types and compositions; your templates and partials; your datatypes and property editors; your media library; your custom controllers and models. It also provides diagnostics about your Umbraco set-up and the server it is running on.

For instance, you can:

  • Quickly search doc types, templates, editors, media etc.
  • Easily see which doc types inherit from any of your compositions
  • See which document types use which property editor or data type instance
  • Distinguish between element types and types that vary by culture or segment
  • See which partials are used by all your templates (and which are cached)
  • Find out which data types are being used (or not)
  • View all content pages in a searchable and filterable table (using fast, server-side pagination)
  • View all Umbraco members and filter them by assigned group
  • Browse all media in the Media Library and filter by type
  • See which controllers (Surface, API and RenderMvc) are being used and in what namespaces and DLLs
  • View all generated models (that inherit from PublishedContentModel)
  • Clear internal Umbraco caches, bump the Client Dependency or even restart App Pool
  • View diagnostics and configuration settings about your Umbraco site and hosting environment
  • Warm up compilation of all templates ("views") in one bound... erm, click.
  • View the raw JSON for nuCache entries for content nodes
  • Uses Umbraco's infinite editor functionality for seamless editing
  • Plus lots more!

If you have any issues with this then try restarting your site and bumping the ClientDependency.config version in the /config/ folder of your Umbraco installation (for the v8 version).
