Decade’s worth of 11 Sitecore modules

Challenge:

Last week Robert Hock published new UI for my Cache tuner module. Which looks great! This module got lot of buzz in Sitecore community last week, and I was surprised to know that lot of folks were either not aware of this tool (Which is published since 27-April-2011 : https://sitecorebasics.wordpress.com/2011/04/27/cache-tuner-user-guide/) or used it in the past. But forgot about it.

As Rob mentioned in the post, At times we used some module. But we forget about it (At times, I also come across my modules from Google or talking to others and same happens for my blog posts as well 😉 – But that’s why I blog – So, as you?!)

In this blog post, Thought to list down all my modules and their usage and link to download for you! [And for me as well ;)]

Sounds great?! – Let’s delve into it

Solution:

List of modules are as below:

  1. Cache Tuner : Cache Tuner Module helps you to understand your Sitecore Caching usage and helps you for fine tuning cache sizes as per Sitecore’s Caching Guide Recommendation. It has two versions Pre Sitecore 8.X and after that [as Sitecore 8.2ish had major caching updates]
