Sublime with Live Wordpress Site

Sublime with Live Wordpress Site

Postby elmer139 on Tue Jan 21, 2014 4:47 pm


How do you Wordpress developers edit Wordpress code of a live site 'locally', test the revisions privately, and then upload/update the fix to the live Wordpress site - without transferring the full live site into MAMP, Bitnami, etc? Seems I saw a youtube video where the developer was quickly editing Wordpress CSS in Sublime Text and quickly seeing the results - using a combination of FileZilla, and Sublime Text. I couldn't tell if MAMP or Bitnami was running as well.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

You can use SFTP and then enable option Monitor File (Upload on External Save). So as soon as you save modified file, ST will upload it automatically trough FTP.

Or, get Emmet LiveStyle, associate style.css in Chrome and do live edit in chrome and/or ST. When you're happy, use SFTP shortcode to upload style.css to server.

Better use SFTP plugin mentioned above. It's worth its money.
