Quick Remote Editing With Vim

I am sure that anyone who has created their own website has had to make simple edits. There are many ways that one may connect, edit, and then publish the changes and all of these ways accomplish the task at hand. I wish to show a quick and easy way to edit remote files using Vim.

user@local~$ vim ftp://hostip/file.py

OK that’s it. Told you it was quick. Save and quit (:wq) and your file is updated and published.

There is a huge learning curve to Vim but I think that with time, you will find yourself being more efficient.
