Running into a slight workflow problem, and finding out that a lot of us being new to Drupal doesn't help. =) Thank you in advance.
The issue being is that a lot of the front-end developers at my company are used to working locally with every project. But our new Drupal CMS I would like to only have running in one location, not on their local machine or our internal server, but only running on a remote server and installed once. We will have many running for our clients and I need to keep the code maintained properly, and would hate a front-end developer to work on it locally to only find out their version is behind now during the length of their project. Or worse yet, they are working on five projects at once and they have to maintain all of those on their machine.
We figured out a small hack to get CodeKit to work on their machine while still seeing the files on the server refresh, so SASS isn't an issue. But they are so used to working locally, they are having a hard time grasping theming on a remote server. I am very much used to working in larger applications that need several environments or complicated compiles, so using Drupal in one place seems SO easy to me.
How does everyone else work on themes? What does your workflows look like? What advice can you give? Anything will help!
