Umbraco Content Files


Provides syncing text based content to physical files.

This package will create a new document type named 'Content File' if one doesn't already exist. You will need to update permissions for the parent document types you would like to create content files within e.g. home.

Only tested in 7.3+ so it currently has a dependency for that version or above.


Install via nuget

Install-Package UmbracoContentFiles


To allow content editors to save content as physical files on the file system, which can then be accessed directly e.g. mysite.com/robots.txt

Load balancing

To use in a load balanced environment where a CMS instance is separated from FE instances you will currently need to setup some kind of custom file replication. In future versions better support for load balanced environments with this kind of setup will be better supported out of the box.
