I’m new here but I’d like to give Discourse a try before deciding what platform to build my community on, since I consider this the most exciting prospect out there.
Currently I’m having trouble setting up a consistent workflow.
Preferably I’d like to either:
a) code in the cloud using an IDE like Cloud9 (https://c9.io)
b) code locally using something like Atom
…and then preview the changes using live refresh for HTML/CSS/JS.
Whenever I’m satisfied I just push a new commit to Github. Then I import the theme remotely to my hosted Discourse install (I’ve chosen Nodechef https://nodechef.com/discourse-hosting for now).
As far as I understand it I will need to be using the Discourse Theme CLI (Discourse Theme CLI (console app to help you build themes)) but I’m having trouble setting everything up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
- I’ve read the basic & advanced guides to Discourse theme development several times
- If everything goes well I will probably be releasing the theme to the community probably using Theme Creator? (https://theme-creator.discourse.org)
- I am not a professional coder and I don’t have much Ruby experience, I’m just a regular front-end designer/dev looking to learn and build cool stuff
