This is a huge time saver - we are using this to export and import fieldsets. Working fine with 2.9.2

Looking for a current copy.  It looks like the github repo has been taken down.  Anyone know what the last version release was or where it can currently be found?

Unfortunately it appears that Max isn’t supporting it anymore. But since it was released under the MIT license I’m making it available on Github @

Please help improve it by submitting your pull requests.

Is this still available?

Apologies if I’m wrong but I just can’t find a download link to it, and the developer’s site doesn’t even mention it, seems to be far too common on Devotee.

The ability to export a fieldset from one project, and easily import/replicate it into another, completely alters how we are working with EE now. Now that data constructs can be abstracted and re-used with ease, content-rendering templates truly can as well. Saving me hours each day right now.

Just awesomeness. And free too.

In general solid but I noticed an issue when replicating a Matrix field that it multiplies the cols by 2 on the original you’ve cloned.

A little rough around the edges, but an absolute life saver if you’re cloning fields a lot. I think this has saved me whole days worth of work. I think a little more UX tweaking would make this a premium add-on.

I just used this to clone fields across multiple channels and it worked like a charm!!!  This saves sooo much time, and also helps with consistency in your custom fields.  Love it!

On a project I was working on I created almost 150 fields in 2 groups but realized they need to be in a single group. Simply exported the fields from one group and imported them into the right group. Saved me hours of having to redo my fields.

A must addon for developers. I use it in all my projects. Following the DRY principle, this saves me a lot of time from creating new custom fields one by one. So much easier to create a bunch of similar fields in bulk like this!

A few typos and possible small improvements, but overall a great addon.
