rmate program enables editing files on a remote computer with
TextMate 2 via an SSH connection. This is a port of
the official Ruby version_ and was made for system that cannot (or just preferably do not) have
Ruby installed. This version (very intentionally) has no dependencies beyond
the Python standard library and has been tested with Python versions 2.4 - 3.5.
This port is probably compatible with Sublime Text, Atom, or other editors that
rmate protocol, but it is not officially tested.
``rmate`` is a single file script, so you can simply download it to a location in your ``PATH``. For example, assuming ``/usr/local/bin`` is in the ``PATH`` :: wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sclukey/rmate-python/master/bin/rmate chmod +x ./rmate mv ./rmate /usr/local/bin/rmate PyPI ~~~~ You can also install ``rmate`` with ``pip`` :: pip install rmate SSH Connection Settings
rmate to be able to connect back to TextMate, a port must be tunneled
through the ssh connection. By default,
rmate uses port 52698, and the port
can be tunneled for an individual connection on the command line
ssh -R 52698:localhost:52698 user .com
or for all connections by adding a rule to your
Host * RemoteForward 52698 localhost:52698
You can use ``rmate --help`` to see the usage :: usage: rmate [OPTION]... FILE... --host HOST Connect to HOST. Use 'auto' to detect the host from SSH. Defaults to localhost -p, --port PORT Port number to use for connection. Defaults to 52698 -w, --[no-]wait Wait for file to be closed by TextMate -l, --line LINE Place carat on line LINE after loading the file. TextMate selection strings can be used -m, --name NAME The display name shown in TextMate -t, --type TYPE Treat file as having TYPE -f, --force Open even if the file is not writable -v, --verbose Verbose logging messages -h, --help Show this help and exit --version Show version and exit When FILE is -, read standard input.
