How can I develop my wordpress site locally?

You can transfer files between your local machine and the hosted website using either Git or SFTP. 

Using Git

Git is a powerful development tool which enables developers or a development team to securely push code changes from their local machine to their site on WP Engine with the benefit of version control. For more details check out our article on how to use Git with Dollie.

Using SFTP

In order to use SFTP you need to first install an SFTP client on your local machine. The client will then ask you for the necessary details in order to connect to your website: the url of your website, an ssh username, and an ssh password. All 3 details can be found my navigating to the particular website within the Dollie control panel.
