    Default Internal CSS editor deprecated ?

    Hi everyone,

    I've just seen in Contao 4.8 that the internal css editor is deprecated and will be removed in a next version. So we have to prefer using external css files we import.

    I'm a bit surprised by this decision as I find this editor useful and helpful. Could we use instead the internal code editor (as for templates) ?

    Thanks for precisions.

    Yes, of course. You can use the code editor within the file manager to edit your CSS files.

    Yes I know we can. But why to abandon this helpful internal css editor ? Will the code editor integrate auto-completion for example ?

    How do you handle all the new CSS3 features with the internal CSS editor?

    Good question but to my point, the force of this editor is to help with the basics and a little more in a few clicks. And "personnalized code" for more.

    But that's exactly the point: most of the time you have to enter the custom CSS code into this field anyway, so you can actually write the code also into an external file directly.

    Ok but :
    - will external css files be accessible from the css icon in themes (we should indicate a css directory when creating the theme) as actually for intenal css ?
    - will code editor have css code autocompletion ?
