Hi !

I would like to know if it will be possible in the futur to edit a file directly on a remote ftp. It's a very usefull functionnality.

Thanks.

    I don't think so. This could be done on filesystem level using LUFS oder FUSE. With these tools you can mount filesystems from a server over a FTP or SSH connection and use it as it were a local filesystem.

    On the other hand, maybe there will be a plugin for editing remote files sometime. For the moment, I would suggest to use LUFS or FUSE.

    gftp is also very nice for this.

    It provides easy login and file management on remote servers.
    It supports ftp, ssh, etc... and you can specify your favorite
    editor ( geany, of course :) for online editing.

    Get it from http://gftp.seul.org/

    Please consider this. It could be very primitive, without any specific functional hardcoding, only using userland tools (ssh, ftp) for receive/send file. It is _very_ useful.

    I'd really love to have this feature in geany, I'm currently using jedit which implements it via a plug in and it works great
