SharePoint Inspector - a cool WSS3/MOSS2007 exploration tool

I just stumbled accross SharePoint Inspector by Gaetan Bouveret. A great tool that allows you to explore your SharePoint Farm.

It is a very developer oriented tool that gives you insight in everything that is going on inside SharePoint. Check it out! Even source code available.

To get the code compiled:

  • Download code
  • Unzip
  • Replace key GatWeb.snk.pfx (password protected) by your own key, name it GatWeb.snk
  • In the current download a file FDisplayView.resx is missing, remove it from the solution (click open FDisplayView.cs)
  • Compile and go!

Features (quoted from the codeplex site):
