Theme development pipeline

Hi all just a quick question, with my companies current setup we like to make small iterative changes that get pushed to production. As far as theming goes is it safe to push directly to the theme directory, check permissions and perform ghost restart as a solution for live theme development?

We’d just rather not have to rezip every time we want to make changes. I think this is the most elegant way of doing it?

Hey @olliejudge :wave:

Best way to streamline your development process is to set up a local install of Ghost and manage your theme with a GitHub repository. That way you can streamline your changes between the team and use GitHub Actions to automatically deploy code when it’s pushed to your GitHub repo:

Hope this helps! Any questions just ask :v:

Oh nice wasn’t aware that existed. Thanks a bunch!
