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

I welcome pull requests or donations to help with the continued development of VersionX. Thank you!
