Gitify: coding snippets/chunks in static files and not in gitify-files


Normally I write chunks, snippets and plugins locally and use “static_file” these to “bind into MODX”.
With this, I can use git and obviously the IDE is much better for coding.

With gitify the snippets and chunks are not right formatted to code in an IDE (no php-tag and without this no syntax highlighting and autocomplete).

How do you work with this - you don’t code in the backend, right?
Using static_file with gitify is doubling the files of course, but it seems the right way.


I personally use Gitify primarily as means to move data between environments, but perhaps others have anything to add about the editing experience. At any rate, there really isn’t much harm in using static elements that Gitify also tracks.
