Cohesion DX8 5.0 comes with a powerful new feature called DX8 sync. The technology allows you to export DX8 styles, components, templates and other settings as a package and import them into a completely different website. This opens the way for creating pattern libraries and living style guides using Drupal and DX8.

DX8 sync uses a completely new config tracking system that understands all of your DX8 configuration and the dependencies they have. The result is the ability to export a DX8 config item and it will work out all of it's dependencies and include them in the package.

Watch this short video to see a DX8 component being exported from one website into another and then used on a page.
