What is the "Stylus" extension and how does it work?
Stylus is a userstyles editor and manager based on the source code of Stylish version 1.5.2. Our objective is to maintain and improve upon the original author's version, while becoming more privacy oriented and remaining more user-friendly for style creators.
What are the main differences and improvements over the original Stylish add-on?
1.) Any and all analytics, telemetry, and data-collection have been removed completely. We'd rather not know what you're up to.
2.) A backup feature, compatible with the one recently introduced in Stylish. To transfer your database, simply export from Stylish and import to Stylus.
3.) An automatic update feature for installed styles. You can now set your own interval for all installed styles to automatically update on their own, silently in the background.
4.) CodeMirror and CSSLint have been updated to their latest versions, respectively. Many false positive editor warnings and errors have been improved via the update, and we've added a few extra exceptions for some other common false positives.
5.) Customizable badge color for the icon. You can now specify what color you'd like the badge to be for "enabled" and "disabled" icons.
6.) A new icon state, which indicates when all styles are globally disabled.

How can I export my user styles from Stylish for Firefox add-on?
Stylish for Firefox add-on does not support exporting to the JSON format at the moment. For now, use the following experimental extension to generate Stylus compatible JSON file.
- Open about:debugging in a browser tab
- Download this XPI
- Point “Load as Temporary Add-on” to the downloaded XPI file
- Wait for a few while until all your styles are converted
On successful conversion, you will get a JSON file on your desktop. This file can be exported to the Stylus add-on. Note that Stylish add-on needs to be enabled in order for the extension to be able to read Styles.
