    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Looking for a plugin to parse the data from your files? Checkout our free Data Serialization plugin. The plugin currently only parses CSV, but more support is being added soon!

File SDK is a simple plugin that provides blueprint nodes for disk IO (input/output) operations. The provided nodes will allow you to read, write, copy, and delete files. The plugin also provides nodes for creating, deleting, copying, and searching directories. All this, and more, plus a growing list of capabilities. Check the below features for a detailed list of available nodes.

This plugin is and always will be free. File IO is so basic that I believe it should be free to empower the developer. I will be continuing to add features, and encourage others to provide additional features at the open source repository:
