Stephen Hesmer demoed a wonderful new tool as the Digitial Experience conference and I wanted to install it and see how it worked.
It is that easy and you are done. Now to play with it Create a directory wherever, I created C:\work\themes\newtest. Once there run dxsync init It asks us what theme to connect to
As you can see we can then pick what theme to talk to
Next we run dxsync run
We then see the following notificiation
I added a comment into theme.html and we now can see this change
Then we could also see it up live in the server as it will invalidate the cache.
One limitation is it still cannot create a new theme so you still need to follow these steps, http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSHRKX_8.5.0/help/panel_help/h_theme_skin_add_theme.dita
So in all it is very nice as it gets rid of the need to have a webdav client as it replaced it for you, plus it auto syncs the changes for you and helps with change resolution.
