    Hi Folks,

    I’ve been asked to look at the css for a large site structured in mvc, using multiple style sheets and inline css.

    To make a change multiple files need to be changed and it makes things very messy. Can anyone please tell me the best way to pick apart each css file, and how to go about restructuring using the BEM methology?

    any help or advice very much appreciated.



    Learn and master the find and replace functionality in sublime text 2 (code editor) would be my suggestion. It’s really fast at searching big projects.

    Does this mean you need to change HTML markup as well? If so how many templates are you dealing with?


    Not sure a Search & Replace is going to help.

    With multiple CSS stylesheets and a lot of page I think I would be looking at the design overall and thinking of starting the CSS all over again.
