I’ve written some small and then fairly complex tools for SharePoint over the years. On this page you’ll find information on where to find the latest versions of my various tools, along with just historical information on tools no longer available, but always remembered :).
SPIEFolder is a tool you can use to import/export files to/from SharePoint document libraries and the local file system.
Allows you to either Import a file system folder (And all files and subfolders) into a SharePoint Document Library, and also export a SharePoint Document Library or a complete site’s content to the file system for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0/Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and SharePoint Foundation 2010/SharePoint Server 2010. This tool completely replicates the document libraries folder hierarchy to the file system when exporting, and replicates the folder hierarchy from the file system to the document library when importing.
Note: This tool ONLY exports the physical files and folders, it does NOT export metadata.
Lastest Version: 2.0 – Click to Download
Allows you to purge the contents from any list or document library on WSS 2.0/SPS2003 or WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007.
If you need to retain a list/document library itself (Maintaining its original GUID) without completely deleting the entire list/document library and re-creating, this tool can help.
You could certainly use Web Folders (WebDAV) to clear the contents, but users stand the chance of accidentally deleting the contents of the forms folder which is not desirable. As well, you could script and automate the task using this tool if you desired.
Lastest Version: 1.0 for WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007 http://sppurgelist.codeplex.com/
The purpose of the SharePoint Site Builder (SPSiteBuilder) is to assist customers with performing SharePoint Site Collection build outs for testing purposes. Primarily for load testing, etc. This sample source can be compiled to produce a tool that will allow you to easily create multiple hierarchies of site collections.
Lastest Version: 3.0 for WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007
The purpose of the SharePoint Site Manager (SPSiteManager) is to assist customers with performing SharePoint Site Collection maintenance activities for SharePoint Products and Technologies (which includes Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 and SharePoint Portal Server 2003). This sample source can be compiled to produce a tool that will allow you to analyze your farm looking for problems, repartition/level sites across content databases, perform batch backups, restores, and deletes of site collections, and perform Site maintenance and cleanup for SharePoint Portal Server.
Lastest Version: 2.5 for WSS 2.0/SharePoint Portal Server 2003
