We are super excited to announce that we have released support for help center themes in ZCLI for our theme developers.
This announcement includes the following topics:
What is changing?
ZCLI is Zendesks NodeJS based Command Line Interface to enable local development of apps and themes that is replacing ZAT.
We have now added support for themes in ZCLI. This means that you can now preview, import, update and publish themes directly from your console when you develop help center themes in your favorite editor.
Why is Zendesk making this change?
We are adding support for themes in ZCLI because ZCLI is the command line interface Zendesk has chosen to replace ZAT and improve the developer experience. See more in Introducing ZCLI: The Zendesk Command Line Interface - Beta.
The ability to import, update and publish themes directly from your command line interface has not previously been supported by ZAT, but has been heavily requested by developers.
What do I need to do?
You can find instructions on how to set up ZCLI in Introducing ZCLI: The Zendesk Command Line Interface - Beta and you can find documentation on how to use the theme features here.
