Try elfinder File Manager module, which also allows inline text file editing, besides other file managing operations.

  • Any documentation? I installed and enabled all module and requirement but don't know how to open a file from theme directory and edit it

The full path or under sites/foobar/files? You should try IMCE. It has a browser-client. This is the link: https://www.drupal.org/project/imce

  • Can i edit the files with it? for example i want to edit my theme and need to update the css file every minute.
