Sublime SFTP has two primary workflows. Throughout the
Usage pages the following
terminology is used to refer to these workflows.
Server: Working off of a server
Remote: Mapping a local folder to a remote folder
Certain features and settings are only applicable to one or the other.
When such a feature or setting is being discussed, it will be noted if
it only works for a specific workflow. In addition to features and
settings, the two workflows have certain user interface elements that
Server: The File > SFTP/FTP menu only
controls servers. Configuration files are stored in the
Packages/User/sftp_servers folder with any filename.
Remote: The context menu for file and folders in
the side bar only works for remotes. Configuration is stored in
a specially named file sftp-config.json. The folder this
file is stored in will be mapped to the remote_path
specified in the config.
