vim-hsftp

SFTP for Vim: Sync local and remote files/folders inside vim.

Config

Create a config file called .hsftp in the root of your projects directory.

Example .hsftp config file - the amount of spaces do not matter:

host   example.org
user   username
pass   Sup3rS3cureP4s$W0rd
port   22
remote /var/www/
confirm_download 0
confirm_upload 0

vim-hsftp searches up the current files (current buffers) directory path for a .hsftp config file, and assumes it is located at the projects root directory. This resembles how the SFTP plugin for Sublime Text 3 works.

e.g. if the local file in vim is located at /example/dir/file.txt, and the example config file shown above is located at /example/.hsftp - when you run :Hupload, vim-hsftp will upload the local file to the host example.org at the remote path /var/www/dir/file.txt via SFTP using the provided credentials.

Usage

Run the command or use the mapping in vim on the current file/current buffer.

Upload File

Upload the current file (current buffer) to the remote path.

:Hupload
<leader>hsu

Download File

Download the current file (current buffer) from the remote path.

:Hdownload
<leader>hsd

Upload Folder

Upload all files in the current folder (current buffer) to the remote path.

:Hupdir
<leader>hsf
