FTP Support for TextMate? (Mac)


#1

Hi all, i got my MacBook pro 15" this weekend, i was using notepad++ at pc, im searching for a nearest text editor tool for mac, and found that textmate is good enough for me. But i need an FTP support for it, is there any option or plugin for that? (like notepad++ ftp connection - realtime modifying)

Also need some recommendation from mac users about best mac tools for web designers & developers. Cheers and thanks to all!

TextMate doesn’t have built-in FTP capability, but it works in conjunction with Panic’s Transmit beautifully. When you set up a site in Transmit, if you enable DockSend and set the Local Path to point to your project’s directory, then you can upload a modified file easily using the Transmit bundle in TextMate. You can also edit files on the server by right-clicking them in Transmit and selecting “Edit with Transmit”. Then whenever you save that file, it’ll automatically be updated on the server. Transmit isn’t free, but it’s the best FTP client I’ve found for OS X.

Cyberduck is the best free FTP client, but it doesn’t integrate with TextMate as nicely.

Best o’ luck!

Panic’s Transmit isn’t the bettest solution.

You should try Flow

On the fly edit,SFTP,etc… Everything you want. And it’s very beautiful. Transmit isn’t.

Looks interesting. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. Transmit works fine for me, but I may try out Flow soon just to see if I like it better.

i use coda. It has an built in ftp too.

Here is a small list of programs you might wanna use:

for editing css/ html and any other languages

Coda

Espresso

CSSEdit

Textmate (you already know)

If i remember others i add here.

Best of luck with your mac.
