What is Wordpress Style Editor?
The 'Wordpress Style Editor' is a Chrome extension that helps Wordpress users save changes made to their CSS directly onto the theme stylesheet. This enhances efficiency as typically, these changes are lost after a page refresh. This extension bypasses this by updating the changes in real-time. Note, it currently works only on the style.css file in the theme's root folder. Support for child themes has been added, along with an auto-save feature for added convenience.
