Re: [PLUG] Open File via SFTP

There's no Linux version at this point, but on my Mac, I use Cyberduck to connect and then open files directly from it in TextMate. CD then watches the temp directory ad uploads whenever it notices a change.

Dunno if something similar exists in the Linux realm...

But for larger projects, I keep an image of the project files on a local hard drive (where I can open/save simply from my editor), then do a bulk SFTP upload. Of course, the inevitable debugging steps require that this edit-upload be done multiple times. How much simpler it would be if I could simply "save" to the remote site via SFTP.
