Live CSS Editing

    I just did my first WP plugin, and that's what it does, it's a CSS live Editor that allows you to preview realtime CSS changes and then save the CSS back while keeping a dated backup on the same location.

    Quite useful, thanks for your efforts. Tried it out a couple of hours ago and worked perfectly!

    You can do live edit CSS using Firebug in Firefox already. I don't see a reason to need this to be added to core.

    Well, actually maybe yes, no need to add it to core. But what this does is more than just having a live preview. You can edit AND SAVE the css files on the go -which you can't do with firebug. That's why I made it. It aint perfect I aknowledge, needs permission settings, some more options (none available right now, actually, it be nice to be able to revert to previous css versions from the same page, for instance), and might yet find some bugs, but it's quite usefull. I'm working with a designer that is in Buenos Aires, Argentina -I'm in Sevilla, EspaƱa- and we speak on skype about the page design, and when she suggests a color or any other thing, I can test and save right away without leaving the page, so she can see the change inmediately.
    Using ReCSS ( http://david.dojotoolkit.org/recss.html ), she can reload only the CSS and see the design changes, and what's best, she herself can make changes for me to see.
