  • Is there a way to get Emacs or Nano on my cloud? VI is on some bullshit. Ain't nobody got time for that.
    • Really? I've been using VI for more than 20 years.

      However, I don't use it much any more since I have my SFTP (Cyberduck) client configured to automatically load files in my editor of choice, and upload them on save.

      Alternately, you could set up sshfs and work directly from your local machine, although setting up an sshfs driver on Windows is not something I would care to do.

      • So no dice? It's VI or nothing? I know people that use VI swear by it but if I have to do any serious coding I'll do it locally. I only ever make quick edits from the CLI and I just don't want to put the effort into learning VI. I've always thought that if I gave it a serious chance that I'd see why the people that use it like it so much but then I thought the same thing about OS X and was sorely disappointed when I did finally commit to using this Mac as my primary PC.

        I may give sshfs a try at some point. It's actually not hard at all to set up on Windows. If you ever need to, check this out: https://code.google.com/p/win-sshfs/

        And I was just joking about VI. I'm sure it's a very solid editor, I'm just unfamiliar with it and I was in a hurry to get something done earlier. I can't even exit the thing without googling. lol
        Thanks! smiley
