Editing files on an Ubuntu server from Sublime Text 2 running on Windows

Posted on

QUESTION :

What’s the best way to use Sublime Text 2 running on Windows 7 to edit files that are located on an Ubuntu server?

Emacs has TRAMP which allows the remote editing of files via ssh. Something like that for Sublime Text 2 would be nice.

I’m also considering sidestepping the issue by running Sublime Text 2 on the Ubuntu server and redirecting to an X11 display on the Windows 7 system.

ANSWER :

While not quite the same as Tramp, the SFTP plugin for Sublime Text 2 is really nice.

I’ve been using Samba on Ubuntu 12.04 and that seems to be working pretty well.
