I’ve been doing a lot of development work recently for clients based on Known which involve, among other things, needing to do fairly involved things with data and ACLs.

Because of this, I was finding myself spending a lot of time trying to see what was actually written to entities by looking at the raw database. This was rather time consuming, and because of Known’s (very flexible but abstract) data model, was rather tricky.

So, I took advantage of Known’s console interface (which I fixed and extended in a recent pull request), to start putting together a collection of useful tools. To use, simply symlink to the appropriate directory from within you ConsolePlugins directory.

Be aware that you will need the current latest version of Known core from Github.
