DISCLAIMER You are using the Apex Editor at your own risk. This Add-on was created to edit many different file types but users should be aware when editing .php files that mistakes made in PHP may break your site.
Thus it is recommended that you should only edit .php files if you have access to the files on the server.

While Developing/Designing it is best practice to disable your Theme & CSS, JS Cache, and Block Cache as described here.
