It's pretty often the case that I'll be editing files via TRAMP (over SSH) and want to access files either in my remote home directory, or the remote root. For both of these situations, ~ and / refer to the local host, so they're not useful here. I've been either navigating through the entire directory structure, or re-specifying the entire TRAMP connection string.

Would it make sense to add a magic key like : for TRAMP paths that'll strip back to the final colon so I can easily edit things in my remote home directory, or add a / and access root on the remote?

This would be useful for sure. Right now, I just press DEL a bunch of times to get to the remote root. We just need to figure out a magic key that would be usable and wouldn't conflict with anything else.

I have both ivy-magic-tilde and ivy-magic-slash-non-match-action set to nil, and when I counsel-find-file and use /scpx:user@host then I end up in the file selection part, and there pressing / RET brings me back to the local root instead of the remote root.

I understand this is essentially what this issue is about, and I thought that instead of using a special key why not treat TRAMP a bit differently?

e.g, if file-remote-p then don't resolve / RET to the local root, just treat it like /scpx:user@host:/.

Can you point to the part where the / RET magic happens? Maybe I can make a PR.

Thanks, ~ and // now work as you expect on remote. Please test. See also: https://oremacs.com/swiper/#using-tramp.
