I'm new to ST2 and after using it for a day, I must say it's unlike any editor I've used, reminds me of the seamless workflow of Maya Autodesk. I'm a bit of an old school Adobe enthusiasts and have been using the code view in Dreamweaver for years
. Although most of the features DW presents to programmers are useless to say the least, one thing I do miss is the built in FTP client that maintains the folder structure of project you create, it's clean and concise. After being so used to DW, I couldn't stand having to switch to a desktop FTP client every time I needed to upload something, I like everything in one spot. So after a bit of Googling, I found an SFTP plugin that does the one thing I need it to do, it maintains the folder structure allowing file transfer with the click of a button, I immediately purchased a license after using the plugin for literally 10min, I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for native SFTP/FTP support : http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/sftp
If you are someone who has many clients/projects rolling at once, working locally can be extremely tedious, especially with multiple database driven CMS, who wants to maintain 10-15 different databases locally? I even find while working on an app, syncing with a remote server can be beneficial for unit testing and whatnot. I can honestly say Sublime SFTP is an excellent replacement for a desktop client if you don't mind shelling out the $16 bucks for a license, well worth it IMO.
