I am going to buy the TextMate text editor for my new Mac. When I come in in the morning I ssh from my Mac onto a server where I do my day's work. I'm thinking that if I install TextMate on my Mac, I won't be able to edit files on the server with it. I'm also thinking that if I install it on the server, my I won't be able to use my Mac to interact with it.
Sorry for the noob question, but how does this work?
Thanks for the response. That makes sense. It just seems to me that developers all over the world could be so much more productive if they had the ability to fire up a sophisticated editor while working on the server.
Ubuntu? If so, another option is a service like Dropbox that will mirror a portion of the filesystem between the server and the client. That way, you can edit locally and the change will be propagated automatically.
