Interesting thread about that theme mechanism.

yes it is. only concern is that the thread is from 2008.
Would be nice to read of what the workflow is these days…
I am really dying for an external templating option which allows for global search and replace etc. using Coda nerdy fave editors.

^^ rah_flat should be more than enough.

I have tried yet again to get this to work and nothing happens for me.
I download the plugin .txt field. install it. tell it the relative directory is ../templates/ i run the url with the key.
eg: http://bicilogic.net/?rah_flat_key=5678c79135ab96888880434559f5f62

i get a response of :
"{"success":true}" 

but nothing gets exported.

obviosly i’am missing something.

followup: i just noted that the documentation says : “Rah_flat imports” which begs the question How to we get them out in the first place? manually?
and yet again… i see that this was all answered earlier in this thread… so never mind. ;-)

Yes, manually. That means, you simple create the files with your templates in the corresponding folders (pages/, forms/).
Using the default setting (../templates/), it will look for the templates/ folder in a folder above your textpattern/ folder. That is, usually, in your document root, so you could put your templates in public_html/templates). If you do so, my suggestion is that you also protect the folder with an .htacces file, so noone can access them via http://yourdomain.com/templates/.
Alternatively, you could put them outside your document root (one level up from public_html/) and reconfigure the setting to point to ../../templates. That way, you don’t have to hide/protect them, as they are outside of the public reach.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] cnk_versioning

I have been using hcg_templates plugin since it came out and it still works like a charm. Imports and exports and automatically backs up your current files before import. It is compatible with the cnk_versioning exports, to import you have rename the extensions and put it in a parent folder. The biggest bonus of course is that it works with the latest TXP install.

Or you can use mem_templates which is an upgrade to hcg_templates which includes plugins and sections but the caveat is you will have to edit the PHP as instructed here: http://forum.textpattern.com/viewtopic.php?pid=268904#p268904

I think both versions also need to be edited according to this thread. http://forum.textpattern.com/viewtopic.php?pid=233494#p233494

mem_template can be downloaded here https://bitbucket.org/Manfre/txp-plugins/downloads/

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] cnk_versioning

If you are considering migrating to flat (text) files for managing your pages, forms & styles, you might find these little python scripts helpful. Basically, they will help you with the initial exporting of pages, forms & styles to flat files. Really helpful if you have many forms & pages and want to avoid manual work.
