Note: This is work in progress, when the editor is done, it will be announced here.

I’m coding a skin editor for the sandbox theme. The code will be gpl, so you can adjust it to other themes, but I will only support the sandbox theme.

Here’s a demo of the prototype: http://soderlind.no/demo/skineditor.php

v1.0 will:

  • support both WordPress 2.x and MU
  • have a preview
  • allow you to save a style to a temporary file prior to publishing it (for testing)
  • in MU, save the style to wp-content/blogs.dir/$wpdb->blogid/css
  • filter the saved css to prevent xss

btw, if you don’t know the Sandbox theme, have a look here: http://www.plaintxt.org/themes/sandbox/. It is one of the easiest/best themes to use as a building block for creating your own themes using css.
