remote server workflow/ text based alternatives

Postby nehal on Wed Dec 19, 2012 2:31 am

Hi --
what are solutions for editing text in a "sublime way" when confined to a console based environment (e.g. you've ssh'd into some remote box)
What text mode editors are most natural to an st2 user -- I use emacs in this situation but I'm starting to hate it -- I've never quite clicked with vim -- would't it be nice to have a text mode st2 that I could install on my boxes :P Are there viable alternatives?

thanks
nehal

exactly. I use sshfs (on OS X) since years, initially with gvim/mvim, then with Sublime. Works very well.

I used Expandrive on OSX and now Windows for the same purpose, but sometimes (on Windows now) it seems to make my whole OS slower, and sometimes files won't save on ST2.

If your using OSX and own "Transmit" SFTP/FTP client it has a mount as disk feature that is like sshfs. I've been using this for over a year and it works well. The sshfs command line option is more configurable though so it just depends on your use case.
