This extension was created to provide basic SCP file uploading within the Komodo IDE on a per-project basis. This extension is also release as an MIT-licensed, open-source project available at scp-for-komodo-ide.

I would love to see other Komodo extension developers add features to this extension because this is a very bare bones extension with no UI except a single menu item.

Could you provide a short "How to" on using this extension please? It's not immediately obvious how to set up a target SCP location for a project.

I'm hoping another smart extension developer will put a front end on the extension because it's not obvious. That's why I open-sourced the code -- I think the extension is useful, but could be eventually really powerful if there were an easy-to-use configuration.

My blog post provides some additional links, too:

...simply open your project.kpf file in your favorite text editor and add the following lines inside the preference-set element:

  <string id="scp_local_path_prefix">/Users/blake/MyProject</string>
  <string id="scp_remote_path_prefix">/var/www/html/MyProject</string>
  <string id="scp_remote_server"></string>
  <string id="scp_user">remote_user</string>

If any of the above settings is not available, an error message will be issued.

Thanks for making this extension. I think a lot of people will find this useful.

It shouldn't be too hard to add some basic UI for this in the project properties. I'm not much of an extension hacker, but I'll take a look.
