IDE for Remote Coding/Testingby temporal (Pilgrim)
|on Apr 09, 2012 at 17:04 UTC||Need Help??|
temporal has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I typically do my Perl coding in Eclipse with the EPIC plugin. Eclipse has lots of great features and is pretty versatile.
I am currently doing some coding/testing on a remote server that only runs a Linux terminal. In days past I would just suck it up and use vim or similar, which is fine for smaller projects or quick scripting. This time I will be undertaking a larger project and I'd really like the convenience of a feature-rich IDE.
So I did some looking around and tried to use Eclipse, EPIC and RSE. The plan was to work on my remote project through RSE ssh. As it turns out, EPIC is not compatible with RSE - something about only using the local perl interpreter, blah blah. It simply won't allow me to create projects with RSE paths.
My workstation is Windows 7, so I cannot just set up a sshfs connection, which was my second thought and would've been a simple fix.
Now, I don't really need to be able to run/test my code through my IDE (though it would be nice). I'm working primarily on a Catalyst project, so code changes are incorporated automatically into my testing application.
So I'm on the prowl for a nifty new IDE or perhaps a workaround for EPIC+RSE. Any recommendations, what do you use?
