nautlius meet ssh://cr.opensolaris.org

I blogged a while back about nautilus being able to browse and access file systems via ssh using ssh://foo.bar but pointed out no real geek would use it. Well I now have a real situation where it is actually easier than using the command line. ssh://cr.opensolaris.org is that place. For manipulating your webrevs or even uploading them even easier than rsync.

Pity about nautilus crashing more than occasionally but still impressive.

Hey, that's pretty slick. Might be worth mentioning that your reviews directory is under /codereview/users on cr.opensolaris.org. (Wish Nautilus spoke to my SSH agent, too.) -- Stephen

Nautilus talks to my ssh-agent which in turn talks to the gmome-keyring via http://blogs.sun.com/chrisg/entry/ssh_add_meets_gnome_keyring

What it does not appear to do is read my ssh config so the real URL I use is ssh://cjg@cr.opensolaris.org then everything just works.

Nautilus is just one front-end for all of this GNOME-VFS functionality. In fact, GNOME 2.22 is doing away with GNOME-VFS in favour of a new API.
You can edit files effectively 'in-place' within GNOME applications that are aware of GNOME-VFS. My only real problem is that the GIMP is still not one of them!
