Mount remote directory over ssh

Okev 9 years ago updated by CuriousTommy 3 months ago 4
Would be useful for development where you need to use a remote server.
Instead of checking files in/out over SFTP, I'd like to suggest mounting a remote folder locally.
What this means is that I can access any random file within the directory and when the file is saved, it's automatically pushed to the remote server without any other operations

This means that
- I can run it from my own flavour of web server - PHP, etc
- I can use GIT or SVN

Bonus points for allowing any web page open in the web preview window and an SSH shell :)

This may go against the philosophy of "Build everything into the one app", so I'd like to point that out upfront. I still think that the remote workflow support would be extremely useful.

Actually, this is already possible using the app Secure ShellFish which allows you to access SSH/SFTP servers as folders in the Files app. You can add those folders as external folders to Textastic and open and edit the files as if they were local.

example of "remote mount" on mac are Macfusion and Expandrive

It worries me that there hasn't been any update on this request for 9 years. Are the developers interested in implementing this?

Oh yeah... I forgot about that feature for the File apps. This will work. Thank You.


Edit: I misread what you said. I guess this will work.
