I was wondering if there’s already support, or any plan to support a kind of thin client workflow.
I would love to be able to install Atom on a server, where all my code lives, and then be able to simply run another Atom locally, which connects to the remote Atom through SSH and acts as a thin client.
One advantage that Emacs and Vim still have over Atom is such workflow. I feel Atom could push that even further by making it all graphical, but it only needs to send gui events through the SSH.
I’m not sure how Atom is architected, but if all the editing logic lives in Node.JS, I assume it shouldn’ be too hard to have a mode that executes on a remote Node.JS through an SSH pipe.
I know that Eclipse Che and Limetext both are trying to offer a similar workflow. Would be awesome if it was possible with Atom.
