remote edits / tramp.
I've been doing development on a couple of machines, moving git&darcs
archives around, but it is really too much of a hassle. I'd like to
switch to something more convenient.
I tried tramp mode before, but it has a couple of annoying bits that
interfere with work flow. Most prominent one is autosave, which
freezes until connection is finished. Maybe switch that off?
Or put backups in a separate directory:
The security bits mentioned there is not an issue, since I'm not
editing any root-owned files in a user emacs session.
(setq tramp-auto-save-directory "~/emacs/backup/")
Cool feature: run M-x shell in a dired tramp dir, and it will start a
remote shell with working tab completion.
After that, M-x shell will start remote shell.
