[REQUEST] Export / Import styles in Stylish
  • I realy think it would be great if Stylish had an export / import styles option, if you could import all your styles from just one single file.
  • That would be great, especially for content styles. Indeed you can use the same stylish.rdf file for different profiles by changing the value of "extensions.stylish.fileURL" in about:config, but if you're using different apps (i.e SeaMonkey, Flock, Minefield), the UI would be a mess.
  • A dream!... Has been brought up a few times before (the latest by Raila) but has never been really answered by np.
    There isn't an easy way to migrate individual styles from profile to profile. I have a few and use different themes/exts. in each. Simply using the same rdf messes everything up and you have to disable all, enable one by one, delete not needed ... pain.
  • In general, you can share styles by posting them to userstyles.org. I realize this doesn't suit everyone because of personalized styles, but it suits most.

    I didn't know you could do that. What would I enter if I wanted a profile named "secondary" to use the file from "primary", so I don't have to keep copying the file back and forth?
  • file:///X:/firefox profiles/primary/stylish.rdf
  • You just set that pref to the path to the stylish.rdf you want to use.
  • Just like you'd do with bookmarks file - point to a folder outside Fx, let's say "My Mozilla" or 'MyZilla' or whatever else. Something like this: C:/Users/Public/Myzilla. All your profiles (with this change in about:config) will use this one file.
    My point is different however. I don't, do not want to share the same file. With different themes, i always have to make changes to styles to suit those themes. Veeeery time consuming.

    EDIT: Ouch! Watch my toes guys!..

    I have 2 computers with 2 different themes too. I don't know if you thought of this because it's one of those "Doh!" things that's so simple you can easily overlook it.

    Styles that apply to both/all computers - like site styles. Stylish.rdf

    Styles that apply to one computer - like theme styles. userChrome.css and/or userContent.css
  • I know, Webb, but i'm so 'attached' to Stylish by now ;-)
    I do use userChrome from time to time since there's no other - easy - solution that i know of (for now). I edit styles there and then create styles from that file in a new profile (time permits).
    What i think would be a great thing is to have check boxes by every style and be able to check certain styles and have a button 'Export checked'.

Howdy, Stranger!
