Firebug is a great extension to firefox for a webdeveloper. You can inspect online and edit and change the HTML of a page using firebug. Moreover You can edit the css of the Page and make any page as you like. The problem is After a refresh the page looks like old. You want to change the css every time in the original file.
It is great if you can save all the change in the firebug css to the original css file. Now this is the solution.
What is Firefile ?
Firebug extension to save the CSS files edited with firebug live to your web server. That makes Firebug become the first remote-save live-preview CSS editor and allows ultra-fast webdesign.
Firefile is developed by bimf.
Installation of Firefile
Just install the addon to firefox
Additionally, you need the following on your Client Computer:
4 There should be a “FIREFILE KEY” visible now.
5 Click on the firefile icon in the firefox status bar to add the site to your css editing enabled sites.
What’s next for FireFile
In the next releases i will focus on functional bug fixing, and also on increasing usability, like key commands to show modified changes, maybe some settings for “automatic saves” to certain files. I’ll also work on the firefile docs a lot, as it’s maybe too complicated still. I’m especially thinking about adding screencasts, a setup- wizard in the webservice script, etc…
A Last Line
