FilesRemote

Download


An SSH file manager.

  • Edit files like local:
    • Automatically download and open files in any local editor (configurable).
    • Automatically upload when changes are detected.
    • Especially useful on slow and unstable links, where FUSE+SSHFS would cause too big of a slowdown on the local system.
  • Edit files as root via sudo.
  • Uses SSH auth agent or public key auth when available, with fallback to password based authentication.
  • Cross platform.

This demo illustrates the automatic upload feature:

Usage

Command line usage:

Usage: filesremote [-h] [-i <str>] [-pw <str>] [[username@]host[:port]]
  -h, --help                    displays help
  -i, --identity-file=<str>     selects a file from which the identity (private key) for public key authentication is read
  -pw, --password=<str>         password to use for authentication and sudo (WARNING: Insecure! Will appear in your shell history!)
Example: filesremote example.com
Example: filesremote 192.168.1.60
Example: filesremote user1@192.168.1.60:22
Example: filesremote 2001:db8::1
Example: filesremote [2001:db8::1]
Example: filesremote [2001:db8::1]:2222

Defaults to your local username and port 22 if unspecified.

MacOS specific

On first run the app will be blocked, because I do not have an Apple Developer account. Unblock it in this System Preferences pages:

Security & Privacy system preferences page

After starting the app, go to File -> Preferences and set up the path of your text editor. For example for Sublime Text on MacOS this could be:

open -a "Sublime Text"

Optionally make aliases for easy command line usage:

alias filesremote="open -a FilesRemote --args $@"
alias filesremote_myserver="filesremote user1@192.168.1.60"
