Keep your Umbraco settings in sync - uSync in an Umbraco package that takes the bits of Umbraco that are stored in a database and moves them to disk, so you can source control, copy and move your Umbraco site between computers and servers.

v9/10/11/12 for Umbraco 9/10/11/12 - Install via Nuget/dotnet add command

 v8.x for Umbraco 8

 v4.x for Umbraco 7

uSync will read/write:

  • Document types

  • Media Types

  • Data Types

  • Macros

  • Member Types

  • Templates

  • Dictionary Items (v7)

  • Languages (v7)

  • Stylesheets (no longer stored in the db in umbraco 7.3+)

Content Edition will Handle
  • Content

  • Media

  • Dictionary Items (in v8)

  • Languages (in v8)

  • Domains

Source Control

Whenever you make a change uSync can write that out to disk, so you can check it in with all your other changes, uSync will also import everything from disk so when you check out other people’s code, their changes will be reflected on your build.


uSync isn’t a deployment system, but uSync.Complete is! https://jumoo.co.uk/uSync/Complete

With uSync everything is written out to disk, ready for import you can copy the files over to your target systems and run imports to make changes. To run standard uSync as part of your deployment you will probably want to tweak a few settings.

uSync Versions

I do try to be good with version control, but it can get confusing when targeting so many different versions of umbraco - as of V7.4 of umbraco these are the current editions of uSync for each version.

Check out the Docs for details of what version to install for Older Umbraco versions.
