Free Librarian – Offers Family Browsing and Management

From the Autodesk App Store:

The app consists of two parts:

The Autodesk® Revit® Component Manager or 'Librarian' :
  1. Provides a searchable list of Components
  2. Allows easy access to standard libraries
  3. Users can customize project-specific libraries
  4. Re-process libraries to see the type and instance parameters of families without first loading them into the project.
  5. Edit families in libraries directly from the App interface 

Please note that the Librarian only works with loadable Revit Families. system families such as walls, floors, dimensions, and the like cannot be managed through this app.

The project statistics section 'Stats' provides the following information to allow users to assess the project health:
  1. Open, save, and synchroniztion timers
  2. Number of elements in the project by Category
  3. Number of views in the project including views that are on sheets and those that are not.
