Text Tunnel - Remote Text Editing

Posted at — Aug 25, 2012

I have recently become enamored with Sublime Text 2. There was only one problem. I couldn’t use it as my default editor when SSH’ed into a server. So I decided to scratch my own itch and create a solution.

Text Tunnel can act as a text editor on remote machines. It seamlessly transports the file to the local machine and opens it in your text editor of choice. Whenever that file is saved the file is sent back to the remote machine.

Text Tunnel is installable as a Ruby gem and is offered under the MIT license. Check it out on Github for more details.
