XF 1.4 Best practices for developing custom styles?


Active member
Looking for some advice about the most painless way to work on custom styles...

I run a fairly large site with a highly customized style, that I occasionally ned to make some big changes to.

I have development server that I like to work on, as I can't disrupt the production server.

What is the best method for working on a style, then re-importing that style back into the live XF server?

Do you simply create a copy of the existing custom style with a new name, export it from the production machine, import it into the dev machine, do the work, then re-import the changed style back to the live server when ready?

Just looking for the easiest path....
