Grab files on-the-fly from a remote fs over SSH
Create a new folder and create a
.remote file inside it.
"ignore": [".git", "src/node_modules"]
port is optional
keyFile should be supplied. (
keyFile must be a string containing the contents of your keyFile for now. In the future, the field will accept a
/path/to/keyfile syntax too)
basePath can be either absolute or relative to entrypoint of the connection (usually the user's home dir. e.g.
ignore is optional. It is an array of paths, relative to the
basePath which should be ignored and not synced down.
Click the two arrows in the status bar or
cmd+shift+p -> 'connectRemote'.
The remote folder structure will be replicated locally
From now on, when you open a file, the contents will be brought in from the server on-the-fly.
Over the next few days, extra core functionality will be added. Such as pushing changes back up to the remote fs on save, extension startup improvements & other bits.
