Sitecore Icon Selector

As Sitecore developers we must never take our mind off the content author experience when building a Sitecore solution. Sitecore itself has a community section dedicated to this very topic.

One of the ways we can do this and mentioned in the post 6 ways to improve your content author experience is to choose unique icons per template to provide content authors with visual clues to the purpose of content items.

Not only should we be providing visual points of reference in the content tree but also in content sections

Unfortunately the process of choosing icons can become a bit of a slow and tedious task. Icon Selector allows developers to automatically assign icons to templates and template sections when they are created by defining patterns using the Sitecore Rules Engine.

Happy Coding!
