So far so good! I've just installed all the required items and have designed half a page visually using firebug. Really hand so far - editing styles and creating styles with ease! One thing worth noting is that I had defined all of my HTML elements and my blank CSS declarations that I knew I would need. i.e I had actually written lines like these into my CSS before I started:
Without this, it doesn't know where to save the styles. But still thumbs up, 5 stars.
Nice that you got it working and that you like it!
As for the missing feature, it is actually implemented so that you can create new rules from the CSS tab in Firebug, however the name of your included CSS-file in the .html page must be identical to the name you are monitoring in the CssUpdater application.
My son likes this. Thumbs up
I had the same problem @lisadeparts did. I also tried to get help with this only to be told that it was something on my end as well. Johan, your response to that review is exactly why people are frustrated. YOU developed it, YOU sold and WE bought it. It's YOUR responsibility to ensure we didn't waste the $30.00Figure it out man. It's the right thing to do, especially since when it is working, it's an awesome piece of software!
This add on once worked like a charm, and was the most important tool I used, now it no longer works half the time. It has truly become frustrating. One of the big issues is you can still sort of tweak existing css properties, but you can't add a property, ie; if there's no margin defined you can't add one. Even though it appears to be working in the updater window, when you sync, then when you upload the css file it never updates properly. This was once the most time saving add-on out there now it's dead in the water. My hope is this get's fixed, I would have easily paid more for a version that truly works but as it is I wouldn't bother.
Update: I have now completely reinstalled the application and still it is not working I am using the latest version 1.5 and still it does not work. I am updating this review because the developer made a comment -- and I have now spent a great deal of time trying to make this work properly and still it does not work.
I am sad it does not work as it was quite good when it did -- but having established that the add-on, Firefox, Firebug, and my own OS 10.6.8 (working on a macbook pro and this is as far up as I can update) are as up to date as possible it still is not working!
Don't get it, if you didn't update it must be something with your own setup that changed... To give the app itself a bad rating because of that only makes me NOT wanting to help you.
I gave this 2 stars this time because i REALLY wanted this to work, but:
1. @Johan, I'm sure you are using the paid version and I cannot reply to a review comment here
2. 2 stars wont negate my last review and wont effect the rating differential much in relation to the one star in which I believe this deserves
3. YES, i watched the youtube video
4. YES, I also went through the steps in the image slider on the add-ons page
5. YES, I did 3 and 4 again twice more to make sure I wasn't sleepy after another long night of coding
6. Started again the next morning, got it to update twice out of 10 times
7. It constantly says FTP is syncing, but it doesn't sync most of the time
8. Again I REALLY WISH THIS WORKED!!! because I use firebug with copy&paste more than Dreamweaver, PS and Filezilla combined...
After MANY emails they never responded, so I figured I would save other people from LOSING $29. Hopefully it will be the last $29 they rob from anyone! I plan on posting this on every blog I can. It wouldn't open up with the code they provided. I have windows ,7 Adobe Air, Firefox 17 and Firebug all installed on my computer. After installing cssupdater I copied and pasted the code from their site into the registration form and it says "Invalid code". I sent them several emails, they don't have ANY SUPPORT OR CONTACT" information on their site, no response from them. Probably not going to get my money back. I would PASS on this add on unless you enjoy a major headache. It may or may NOT work great, but if you can't get in it what good does it do?
I was trying to "make do" with just 1 .css file being updated, and manually changing it to the css i was using at the time, trying to save money by not buying the full version. Best thing i did was to buy the licensed version and now i can't stop pressing the sync button :)
Great addon, saves time true, i find it more of a "i'll just keep tweaking the css till i get it right" then press sync, so I do not have to remember what i changed.
Bought this while at work, even through work wont pay for it, it's cheap enough and totally worth the price to help me have less frustration at work.
When it comes down to it, if something is good, you should always pay for it, and this is 100% worth buying. (using win 7 firefox 17.0.1)
Thanks man! Happy to know it is used as it should!
I would very much like this to work but can't find a way of installing the Desktop App on my Vista laptop. I have followed the instructions to the letter inc, updating Adobe Air
That shouldn't be a problem. Please contact me via http://cssupdater.com/disqus or email@example.com with specific info of what step you can't finish (preferably with screenshots or screencast). I would say there is no need to give a 1star rating if you hasn't tried the application at all.
现在我更多时候 在使用 IntelliJ IDEA 的 css-x-fire
Extremely handy and a time saver. Installation and setup could be explained just a little bit more and with better images, or even a video. But that is nitpicking.
Thanks! Yes I agree that the site should get an overhaul. I will fix it in the near future.
I even paid for the $29 upgrade. I resent the big waste of time spent trying and wishing for this to work. My usual fireFTP credentials don't work here. ALSO, the client app doesn't kill its process when I close it down. Wish they had a no-star option.
I don't get it. I got a support page which I visit 3-4 times a week and contact info that isn't invisible at all and that works fine for all other users.
What super support are you expecting from a guy who did this in his evenings and are on parental leave? Having no problems giving you a refund of course, but with your attittude you shouldn't expect much support imo.
Extensions site tells me that I cannot install on my platform (Linux x64). Why not?
I can change the add-on so it is supported by Unix as well. However this it not tested at all but should work! If it do, please remember to update to correct amount of stars (5) in the rating :)
Beautiful! A must have for every css-ser!
I love this tool. It makes editing website css a breeze. It has quickly become an essential tool. Thank you!!
still needs some development, but it's already a part of my dev workflow -- it saves me a TON of time when tinkering with CSS
Excellent, Thank you very much saves me lot of time every day. Keep up the good work.
