    How does it know what source file the change should go to? Source maps?

    Also if for example someone is using SASS with preset variables for margins, any changes made in this extension would not be aware of that right?

      Yes, source maps. I only have a proof of concept so I haven't nailed down all the details yet, but I do have a working version with edits to a scss file.

      As for variables, I'm not sure yet. The devtools elements panel is not aware of variables, but the sources panel is. This is partially just dependent on how the browser handles things.

      Overall, this is not meant to be a tool you'd be using to commit directly to a production repo—it's more for prototyping out the code to get a design direction in place—but obviously being able to edit variables would be amazing!
