Working with remote files

Vico has built-in support for editing files over SFTP. To open a remote directory, use the :cd command to change to a sftp:// URL. For example, :cd sftp://www.example.com changes to the home directory on the www.example.com server. Use the explorer sidebar to open files, or directly with the :edit command.

A file relative to the home directory on the remote server can be referenced by the following URL: sftp://www.example.com/~/directory/file.txt

For SFTP to work, you must use public key authentication. It is recommended that you protect your private key with a passphrase.

Vico's SFTP support uses the ssh support built-in to Mac OS X, so any configuration files you already have for ssh will be used.
