I would love Sublime Text to have built in FTP -- in the same manner as Coda.
I'm in support of the old-fashioned way of live editing sites.
I've made over 200 websites and know exactly what I'm doing. I work on multiple computers and have no desire to setup each with a development environment. I have no desire to pull from git repositories every time I want to make edits and then push them back. I'm working by myself on sites -- not with a team.
GIT is for version control and is FANTASTIC when you are writing software. It's FANTASTIC if you're working on a team project -- perhaps even a web app.
But creating a Wordpress or Drupal site on git? Having multiple machines with test environments installed? Having to setup repos for 100s of sites and push and pull whenever you want to make and test small changes? No thanks.
With database driven sites, often times I am working within the CMS aspect and the HTML/PHP template simultaneously and jumping back and forth.
When this is the case, using GIT is just cumbersome.
Besides, I also like to know how FAST things load remotely while I'm working on them. I don't care how fast they work on my local machine.
There's every advantage in the world to work on the actual thing.
The argument is "What if you mess something up?"
Answer: Fix it. Any argument that one could lose two weeks of work by editing this way is absurd. Who is so terrible at programming websites that they make one mistake and destroy that much code? I can understand destroying a database by mistake - but Git has nothing to do with that. And if you wrote code that produced a horrible SQL query that destroyed a database, I'm not sure what git would do to help.
I'm not working on enterprise level projects -- and if I was, I'm sure I'd have a team with me and we'd be working on the local intranet on a dev site and pushing things at a different rate and discussing iterations over coffee.
But is that who Sublime is developed for?
And are the people who wrote Coda absolutely idiots?
No, of course they aren't idiots. They wrote an amazing FTP client and made an editor that has it built in to facilitate this function. The product sells like hotcakes and there are many people out there using it this way without catastrophes caused by idiotic programming.
I do most of my development on a Windows 7 desktop -- I find Windows to be much easier to work with than MacOS for many reasons. I use a MacBook Pro when I'm working remotely. I yep, I use Coda 2 on my MacBook and it's absolutely awesome. I absolutely would LOVE to have it on my PC. Coda would be my #1 reason to get an iMac as my next computer. If not the only reason.
