Cameleon... At first glance it may seem as though Cameleon is simply a file browser for themes and templates. However, first impressions are not always reliable. Cameleon was created to simplify your workflow when modifying Web themes (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Xoops, etc.) and Web site templates. Cameleon's unified interface gives easy access to all the files within a theme or template. With text files (html, css, php, xml, plist, etc.) you can edit them directly in Cameleon or, if you wish, you can open the text files in the text editor of your choice for a particular file

Just to back-up the developer: the most tedious part of editing a template is opening images in Photoshop and files in Dreamweaver. This has already saved me quite a few minutes, even using the trial version.

I am the developer of Cameleon. SHOCK J remarks, "This program doesn't really "do" anything. It's a glorified file browser with built-in preview."

I can certainly see how this might seem to be the case at first glance and I would like to address this impression.

I created Cameleon to simplify my workflow when modifying web themes and templates. Cameleons unified interface gives me easy access to all the files within a theme or template. With text files I can edit them directly in Cameleon or, if I wish I can open the text files in the text editor of my choice for a particular file type.

For me the most useful image manipulation feature is Cameleons capability to replace theme or template images with drag and drop. If I attempt to replace an image with one that has different dimensions from that of the image being replaced, Cameleon will give me the option to resize the new image to match the dimensions of the original.

Other features that may not at first be obvious but that can be very handy are:
- option to edit text files within Cameleon
- search and replace strings withing text files within Cameleon
- minimizes desktop clutter
- search name, contents, or both of all text files of a theme or template with one click
- built in web browser for previewing html files

Personally, I have found Cameleon to be a real time-saver. Your milage may vary.

This program doesn't really "do" anything. It's a glorified file browser with built-in preview. If you have to edit all your files with a different app, what's the point of this?

I think that the developer should define what, exactly, he/she means by 'themes'.

Is it CSS style sheet modifications, or is it UI themes in OSX?
