Project Description

The rmate program enables editing files on a remote computer with TextMate 2 via an SSH connection. This is a port of the official Ruby version and was made for system that cannot (or just preferably do not) have Ruby installed. This version (very intentionally) has no dependencies beyond the Python standard library and has been tested with Python versions 2.4 - 3.5.

This port is probably compatible with Sublime Text, Atom, or other editors that use the rmate protocol, but it is not officially tested.



rmate is a single file script, so you can simply download it to a location in your PATH. For example, assuming /usr/local/bin is in the PATH

chmod +x ./rmate
mv ./rmate /usr/local/bin/rmate


You can also install rmate with pip

pip install rmate

SSH Connection Settings

For rmate to be able to connect back to TextMate, a port must be tunneled through the ssh connection. By default, rmate uses port 52698, and the port can be tunneled for an individual connection on the command line

ssh -R 52698:localhost:52698

or for all connections by adding a rule to your ~/.ssh/config

Host *
RemoteForward 52698 localhost:52698


You can use rmate --help to see the usage
