Tools or methods to develop GTK themes

Hi everyone. I tried this question on the design forum but I suppose it could be answered from a programming/development perspective:

Does anybody know of a tool that could assist in live editing the CSS for a new theme? It seems a little rough to edit files and then use root permissions to move the files to the theme directory. Or would it just be simplest to just elevate gedit and modify the files directly?

I actually saw a program called GTK parasite or something along those lines that supposedly did this kind of thing but it looks like it hasn't been actively developed in years.

Re: Tools or methods to develop GTK themes

open the home folder and show hidden files. you can create a .themes directory and put the theme folder you want to edit in there. that way you can use gedit to manipulate it without needing root rights.

e.g. /home/yourusername/.themes/your-theme/

Thanks to both of you for your input. This is very helpful information. Should be enough to move things along a little faster.
