The content browser displays all currently installed content on the system and allows navigation of the objects.

The tree can be broken down into the following heirarchies:

  • Top level (content) - Each folder represents content installed on the system
    • Documentation at this level is content-pack wide documentation

  • Second level (sections) - Each folder contains objects bundled with the content

  • Object level (objects) - Each entry at this level can be one of the following:
    • Template - displays the template in a read only code-editor

    • Object - displays the following options:
      • Documentation - At this level, documentation is per-object

      • Inspector - Look at the object in a read-only inspector

      • Link - Navigate to the potentially non-read-only inspector in the table view

      • Raw Object - Read YAML for this object with a few removed fields
