You should have the theme in it's own git repository, then pull and link that repository into node_modules when you deploy.
Efficiently developing a theme
I'm working on a theme for my company and wanted to ask if there is a way to efficiently do this? At the moment I always have to reload nodebb from the admin panel and then refresh the browser. That is a bit annoying.
I'm used to develop my websites with a grunt or gulp file that serves the content with browsersync and always live reloads its. As far as I see there is no way of doing this with the templating system?
Start NodeBB with
./nodebb watchand it will reload automatically whenever detects a change.
Thanks a lot!
