48 Hours of Writing Stylesheets with Etherpad and a Gong
A video of the redesign of the OSP homepage, from a traditional blog based site to a site that is used to communicate our design process in a ‘release early, release often’ manner: every time we add a file to our shared repository it shows up on our site.
The screenshots above are from a period of 48 hours where we work on the site together. To write CSS, we keep a shared Etherpad. One person is in charge of the gong: when she rings, she copies the contents of the pad into the site’s CSS file, and uploads it—after which everyone can refresh their browser and see the updated styles.
If you run a recent version of Etherpad, you can install ep_export_less_and_css, a plugin bnf created that enables CSS export directly from Etherpad.
