View Full Version : Modifying CSS on the fly

07-15-2008, 10:20 PM
Hi ...

I am working on websites that are hosted on servers, and I need to modify the CSS on the sites, on the fly, I am using firefox web developer toolbar to edit the css on the side and see how it looks like.

But how do I really modify the CSS on the fly, in real time eon the server and see and make changes ?

well, you need to grab the style sheet from the remote server. then edit there and upload to the server. What ftp program do you have?

HI, I am using ultraedit's FTP uploader for it.

Don’t know whether there is such a program for Windows (but I’m sure there is) but I’m using Transmit (http://panic.com/transmit/) where you can edit remote files “online” and/or specify any external HTML editor to edit the files. Basically they’re downloaded to a temporary location, and upon saving the changes the file is uploaded automatically. That’s as quick as it can get.
I don’t know any windows FTP client that does this, though.

FileZilla does something like this I think?

yep, the current version of Filezilla lets you download the file once and then when you make changes, you upload from that file. It saves time because you don't need to download each time you need to make an edition and , for me, it means I don't forget what I was doing as I wait for it to download. :)
