Add-On Type(s)



This accessory was born out of my frustration for forgetting what I named my custom fields, snippets, and global variables. Now you have an accessory to use as a reference for building your templates. Just click on the EE variable you want to use and it will copy it to your clipboard.

Note: This add-on’s original author, Matthew Krivanek, has turned over development and support to Causing Effect. All outstanding bugs should be squashed now!

I don’t think I realized I had a need for something like this until I installed it.  Now it is on my default list.  Thanks Aaron!

Aaron stepped in and saved the day. Since he took this over it is definitely an add-on worth having in every site. Thank you for fixing and supporting it.

Despite some quibbles with the interface, I will never develop an EE site without this again. Fantastically useful.

I am right there with everyone else on this one. An amazingly simple concept though, so so helpful. I like how it’s right there where you need it at all times.

A massive timesaver – this is exactly what I’ve been looking for for quite a while now and simplifies template development and custom field setup hugely!

This is a must have add-on. Great time saver where you can see all your template variables while your editing your template. Then you can simply click the variable name to copy ready to paste into your template code. Awesome.

This add-on is a must-have for and serious developer building / coding templates in EE. You can easily look-up custom fields, snippets, and global variables, copy to your clipboard, and paste into your code.

This is an absolutely fabulous accessory. I was always having to open additional tabs to remember my custom fields, snippets, and global variables. NO MORE!!! This is actually a bit more detailed than i needed, but better to have to much than not enough right? Awesome job on this Matthew Thanks!
