Description

3 years ago
I frequently need to jump to a specific selector in the styleeditor. But the workflow using the built-in find function is very slow, and not powerful.

Here are the main problems with the built-in find function :
- The findbar auto closes when I hit enter, I expect it to redirect me to the next match
- The findbar filters all instances of a string (including non-selector ones), but I *just* need to access my selectors

Here are some possible solutions to the problem :
- A selectors panel (with a filter box), that works similarly to the media sidebar by listing all the selectors, and by jumping to them in the code when clicking on the item
- A powerful debugger like search box with ways to find selector/string/rule/...

I like the selectors panel idea better, since it shows me all the selectors at a glance, but I don't know how well it works with perf. Another advantage of the selectors panel is that it could integrate with the CSS coverage functionality, by graying out unused rules which is convenient if you need an overview of unused rules in your code.
