I use Smultron for editing, which works great with Cyberduck. But I also keep an Open Office Calc spreadsheet (.ods file) on the server where I keep track of my project's progress. Right now, I have to download that file, edit, and re-upload when I make a change. It would be nice if I was able to choose OpenOffice or any other applications as a choice in the Edit With menu.

One of the easiest ways this could work is if in the Preferences window, putting a list of editing applications that the user can modify and when they right-click on a file and select Edit With, that list of editors shows up, allowing the user to edit with an application in that list.

This would also make Cyberduck a good alternative to using a MobileMe iDisk.

This is related to #2306.

#2306 appears to address the same problem, but using a much different approach. That one sounds almost like a request for synchronizing remote folders and local folders. If #2306, or something similar gets implemented, then this one should be easy (may even be covered by the implementation of #2306).

Replying to [comment:3 ross.peoples@…]:

This is referenced because if we want to support arbitrary editors (that to not have ODB support) we must watch the filesystem for changes.

As of e211358 we add the default editor for the selected file type to File → Edit if editor.kqueue.enable is set to true.
