FASTyle 2.2

25 Jul 2016 Edited
FASTyle is an all-in-one suite which dramatically improves and speeds up assets management, including templates, stylesheets and javascripts (in /jscripts folder). FASTyle is equipped with its own themes manager, reducing the usage of the core "Themes" and "Templates" modules to the minimum. It uses a customized version of CodeMirror editor to provide an eye-catching experience.

Minimum requirements

PHP 5.4
MyBB 1.8.0


AJAXed interface

FASTyle is built with speed in mind; as such, every action you take is routed to the server with AJAX technology, accounting for its unique real-time feel. Assets are listed in a convenient collapsible sidebar, and once loaded they are added to a tabbed top bar where you can easily switch between opened ones, resembling a standard browser experience. Get, save, add and delete assets anytime and in real-time.

Since for every theme a template set is used, FASTyle displays a theme and its associated template set. Orphaned template sets, those without a parent theme, and global ones are listed separately.

SPARKLES use the CTRL/CMD+S combination to quickly save assets.

CALENDAR In future releases FASTyle will include even more actions, progressively overriding the core modules and allowing you to manage every different aspect of your themes with AJAX.

Diff comparator

Compare assets to their original versions and edit them as you type. Templates and stylesheets are compared against the local MyBB Master Style versions, while JavaScripts are compared remotely by fetching the original asset from GitHub synchronized with your current MyBB version.

Quick mode

When you perform sensitive actions, like closing unsaved assets or deleting them, you are prompted with a confirmation dialog. Quick mode allows you to bypass dialogs and approve your actions automatically, like a pro.

WARNING SIGN By enabling quick mode you acknowledge that you can permanently delete assets without any confirmation dialog. Templates and stylesheets are saved in the database, so you *might* have automatic backups generated by MyBB's tasks system; JavaScripts are saved in the filesystem and are more prone to data loss.

State memory

FASTyle remembers your editor tuning, including previously opened tabs and the last one being worked on, quick mode and full paging, and sets them automatically once you refresh the page or come back days after. FASTyle's memory is stored in your browser cache and it's theme's specific, so you can work on different themes without letting their own setups interfere with each other.

Stylesheets quick reordering

Drag and drop stylesheets and reorder them wherever you want. In the current version, stylesheets' order is saved automatically after 4 seconds from the last drop.

Distractions-free mode

Aka: full paging. It allows you to work better by having zero distractions over your coding sessions.

Custom theme

A custom and handmade theme is included to rest your eyes in delight while managing your beloved MyBB board.

Sublime Text keymap

FASTyle adds the popular Sublime Text keymap to CodeMirror: here you can find the complete list of keyboard shortcuts you can use to improve your template and stylesheet management.

Revamped find and replace

A revamped find and replace module for CodeMirror is included. This is one of the hottest features included in FASTyle, as CodeMirror's standard functionality lacks friendliness and it's one of the biggest bottlenecks faced by its users. FASTyle's version works much like any advanced code editor for OSes, persisting on screen after the search, highlighting matches properly and in real-time.

Check out your server’s error log for potential errors. I an’t debug without either a temp admin or FTP access with so little information.

This is a known issue with small screen, yet to be solved unfortunately. While you wait for an update, use full screen mode which should partially help.
