I have been trying to get FTP to work in Sublime Text like it does in Coda. In the sidebar are all your remote files, which can be viewed/edited easily without the need to swap back to your FTP software and choose which files you want to edit (or confirm uploads in the case of Filezilla).
I recently came across an article
for how to use gEdit (I'm running Ubuntu) for remote editing. Basically you set up the FTP connection as a drive and then you can easily open the folder within gEdit.
i thought this was really cool, but I wanted to use Sublime Text so I added the same FTP folder to the sidebar and KA-BAM! I had FTP Remote Editing inside Sublime Text!!
I was pretty stoked right now, it was like Sublime Text had just become 10x as awesome!
However I quickly came across a problem that makes this method unusable: Sublime Text couldn't open any files that were larger than 4Kb
, it would just open it as an empty file! I don't think it was the connection, as I could open the same files within gEdit and other text editiors. It was like Sublime Text had a limit on the file size over FTP.
Does anyone else have this problem?
