CodePlex Project – SP2010 Explorer

As part of an on-going effort to learn the technical low level details of SharePoint 2010, I’ve created a “SharePoint Explorer” kind of tool.  The idea isn’t new.  I used this project more than once:  My idea is to create a SharePoint version that uses connected web parts to show all the low-level detail that the object model can provide. 

This blog post serves as both an announcement of the project as well as a call for volunteers.  If you’re interested in working on this project, let me know via email ( and we’ll work it out.

Here is the project:

    Love the effort and it’s a good idea of trying to show everything the Sharepoint Object Model has to offer – but why would I use this over the Sharepoint Manager?

    Right now I would see it as a playground to see how to access e.g. SPList and all of its properties, but really digging for information about all document libraries I have on my Sharepoint? I would use Sharepoint Manager.

      Sorry for never replying. You’re right. It was meant to be a learning project and not really going to be a thing that would compete with an established tool like that. I never progressed it much.
