ODB Editor Suite

© December 2005 Tony Lawrence

Apparently a number of Mac Editors and FTP clients support this "ODB Editor" protocol originally developed by Barebones software for BBEdit. What it does is allow integration of an external editor with the ftp client: when you save your changes, the editor gets signaled to automatically upload the new version and write it back.

Somebody must have thought this was a good idea. You don't have to remember to upload, isn't that great? Well.. no. At best it's a minor convenience, but it also opens the door for accidentally destroying your remote version.

I think this is a feature best left unused, but that's just me. If you do a Google for "ODB Editor Suite", you'll find a lot of products that say they support it.
