You may find a more detailed explanation of the tool, or its limitations on the corresponding post or dedicated repository README, which leads to the next important point:
Every single one of the tools you are about to see, have been documented and neatly bundled together in a convenient Unity Development Tools Repository. For you to fork, try or follow. Again, they are FREE so just go see them, there are neat things in there~

Have you ever added an extra empty space while naming a mecanim variable, and spend over 30 mins looking at why it doesn't find the reference?
It just sucks, so better have them in a convenient dropdown instead.
In case you didn't know by know, any enum that you create, is immediately displayed as a dropdown in the inspector. Already neat as-is, but let's go a step further.
This attribute allows enum entries to have ANY text you want, so be sure to check them out.
Ever felt like quickly groupping together many objects under the same parent? Well, with this tool you can do that with a simple command.
If you haven;t heard of Unity's Scriptable Objects, you've really been missing out on a great tool for custom systems. But if you already use them, you know how tedious it might be to have a dedicated per-type context menu for each one.
Which is why having a handy dropdown that can create ANY type you need, is simply marvelous.
Pointless But Amusing
A useful(?) tool(?) that allows you to play a demake of the original pong. This particular version lacks the multiplayer capability and just stares at you until you get the newest local high score.
Do you make games? Then I got something for you.
