Each time, as developer I need to test changes in custom css I need to repeat this 4 steps.
When I work in SCSS, I need a fast way to trash all generated CSS and preview my changes - I’m working with Firefox developper to have a fast preview, but I need to clear all caches and Astroid generated CSS to continue my work.
In a good day, I maybe have to do that maybe 40 times
Step 1 = Go to —> Admin Joomla Menu > Extensions > templates > styles Step 2 = Go inside any layout styles Step 3 = Wait for Astroid load Step 4 = Click the “Clear Cache” button
My suggestion will be IDEALLY to add a “Clear Astroid Cache” at the first level of Joomla administration, Like that doesn’t matter where you are in the administration — Reduce to 1 step
Or at least at the second level — Reduce to 2 steps
Find a way to bypass, at least on Firefox Dev... Should work with other browser.
• Clear your browser history
• Open a Private Window Session
• Open any Astroid Template Layout (with the “Clear Cache” button (in Private Session)
• Open another tabs with the Website (in Private Session)
Reduce to 3 steps and no more waiting watching the Asteroid crossing the screen
1. Change your CSS/SCSS
2. Press your “Clear Cache” button
3. Refresh your page
Thanks for posting, let's hope they get this added on next update. I noticed you mentioned the Astroid onload animation and just thought I'd mention that it can be deactivated in the Astroid [joomla] plugin, see attached.
