I'm kind of just getting started with PHP development and using Sass for my css in building a site. I downloaded MAMP and built out the site on my local machine, so the PHP worked great, and the sass was automatically compiled locally for me.
Now usually when I have dealt with a remote site, it's been just with extremely simple static html and css files that I can easily modify remotely.
So I finished the site and uploaded it to my remote server. It all works great, but now I'm not sure about the best way to edit the css. How would a typical web developer go about this? I know I could keep a local copy of my entire site, and then every time I need to make a change, edit the local files, find all corresponding remote files via ftp and override them. But that seems a bit laborious for a seemingly simple task. Is there not an easier way of doing this?
Or is it that Sass isn't really meant for simple projects like this, where I would prefer to just manipulate the remote files right from ftp?
