Netlify Create's code editor is a way to made code changes directly in the browser while in the Netlify Create editing environment. It saves and automatically commits changes.

The code editor is only available in cloud projects. Use your preferred code editor when working locally.

# Commit changes

Changes are periodically auto-saved. When a file is changed, it is automatically committed and pushed to the working branch in the remote Git repository.

# Edit content for Git CMS

Sites using Git CMS typically have content stored in files directly in the repository. This means that content could be changed via the code editor. We do not recommend this. It is safer to use Netlify Create's other editing methods to adjust content, so that proper validations and structure are applied and maintained.
