Fastest way? How about edit in browser itself?

Add stubs/new JS/CSS etc. files in the repo, do a clean install on the client project, run
mgmt server.

Open up Chrome, open developer tools -> sources, make sure you’ve the console open too.
Edit JS files, save it; it will say something on the console like “Recompilation and update
For tinkering purposes, you can use inspect elements; add break points, do resource/performance
monitoring/benchmarking/optimizations etc.

Now, iterate until you’ve a solution; copy stuff from the JS files (Chrome) to the source
files in the repository.
Hope this helps.
