For the redesign of a website we were working on, we needed to work directly on the live website and at the same time we couldn't afford to make visible changes for the users.
So we decided that we will create a plugin that could load a specific template for a specific joomla group. This way the developers working on the new site template could work on the live data, but users would still see the old site template. Once we were ready with the redesign we could just switch to the new template without any hassle.
