About VersionX

VersionX is a utility tool for MODX Revolution that will help you version your content in Resources, Templates, Template Variables, Chunks, Snippets and Plugins. Every save is recorded and can easily be looked back, compared and restored through the component.

NOTE: VersionX 2.0 is a complete rewrite and is NOT compatible with VersionX 1.0. You can create a snapshot of all your existing content during installation, however you cannot re-use any data stored in the old 1.0 table structure.

I welcome pull requests or donations to keep development moving as quickly as possible. Thanks!
