I really like this as a replacement for the textmate option, as it gives me freedom to choose my own tools.
However.. i am unsure about something. It seems that there is only one way sync of files to the repository, which makes a bit cumbersome when working multiple people of a theme.
Today we track this manually, so if a team member implements some changes, then he notifies me when he is done, and then i delete the whole shop from the shopify desktop theme Editor and then add it and download all files anew.
It would be cool if the Theme Editor would have an option to force a download a full site again, and possibly download changes only.
We are thinking whether we could use Git for sharing between team members, but we havent gotten around to test this yet.
If you could implement a small webserver in the Theme Editor, which would make it possible to preview changes locally (webserver uses api to render site) then it would make it easier for doing some testing before you push to live site (this could be an option setting in Theme Editor, that local preview disables file sync, until switch is turned off and then upload files to live)
Anyways.. just some ideas
