Yet another SFTP plugin

Yet another SFTP plugin

Postby hyperturtle on Fri Sep 30, 2011 5:20 pm

I recently discovered Sublime Text 2 and have been loving it!
The only thing missing for me was editing over sftp.

Didn't really like the other sftp/remote editing plugins, mainly because of the inability to browse files, so I made my own plugin.

  • Works for now over sftp/ssh2, using psftp (part of the putty family)
  • Uses the power of the quick panel completions to browse files
  • Automatically hooks into file saves and uploads after saving
  • Optionally, continues to spider the file tree populating the quick panel list

https://github.com/SublimeText/Mote

Let me know what you guys/gals think.

Edit: moved repo to SublimeText github org

On OS X you can use MacFUSE and MacFusion to mount directories as local volumes via sftp, so you can just treat it as a file system and nothing extra is needed.

. What's the best mounting solution for windows?

NetDrive. Free for personal use.


I really don't understand the mentality of developing on a remote server with just s?(ft|c)p. [...]

Is very useful when you have to do only some quick fixes. I'm also doing this some times. But developing directly on ftp is kind of silly (to use a soft word).

Mainly because I'm still using Windows and do my development on a remote linux box. This plugin allows me to edit over the wire onto a remote machine.

I still use git to do versioning on top of editing the remote files. My main workflow is for web development is:
Open PuTTY to 'watch tail logs'
Open remote file(s)
Edit file(s)
Save/Upload file(s)
Open dev server in browser / watch logs -> debug
Repeat Edit -> Debug until satisfied
Git commit

Really impressive plugin. It would be perfect if it was possible to display the file list also as a tree in a sidebar panel... do you think it would be possible?
