The Lithium Developer Network brings out the best of Lithium community and collaboration. I spend time in the Developers Discussion forum and Developers Knowledge Base on a daily basis, and the camaraderie and support I see shared among Lithium employees, partners, veterans, and newbies always makes smile. One of my favorite parts of the Developer Network is our members’ innovation and desire to share code samples and customizations.
Keeping with this spirit of collaboration and giving back to the community, we here at Lithium want to highlight a couple of Chrome extensions created by folks you’ve likely interacted with on the Lithium Community.
Lithium Bulk Uploader
This extension is brought to you by Hinterlands, a long-time Lithium partner. You might have seen Chris Blown - @cblown - present at LiNC. Or perhaps their Technical Lead Peter Lu - @peterlu - provided a solution to your forum post.
Hinterlands developed the Lithium Bulk Uploader, an extension the enables drag and drop assets into the Asset Library in Studio > Community Style > Asset Library > Other Assets.
To view the original Asset Library and macros for referencing an image in custom code, simply click the Show Legacy Version link at the bottom of the window.
The extension also provides a nice enhancement for the delete asset workflow. Simply click the Delete button (X) on an image to remove an asset from the Asset Library. You’ll see a confirmation dialog to verify your actions.
It’s a slick little tool for enhanced file upload and management with nice visualization of your custom assets.
