editor's review





SSH Editor is a simple-to-use software application that gives you the possibility to connect to SSH-enabled servers in order to edit and upload files. Catering to all user levels, the app offers support for a search function, multiple tabs, and syntax highlighting, among others.

Hassle-free installation and user-friendly interface

Installing this tool is a speedy job that shouldn't give you any trouble. As far as the interface is concerned, SSH Editor opts for a large window with a common look and structure.

Create profiles with server connection settings

To begin, you have to connect to an SSH server by specifying the host name, port number, user name, password and starting directory. These parameters can be saved as a new profile, as the app lets you create multiple profiles and easily select them later instead of having to input the same connection parameters every time.

Explore folders and edit files

Once connected to the server, you can explore the directories and files in a tree view, and open any file to modify its contents directly, without having to download them.

As previously mentioned, multiple tabs are supported, so you can open multiple files at once and seamlessly switch through them. It's possible to undo and redo your actions, indent text to the left or right, search for keywords and replace them with something else, reload the directory, and download files.

Tinker with general preferences

When it comes to program configuration, you can pick different colors for the background, foreground, right edge and syntax highlights for CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, SQL and XML. What's more, you can change the default tab width, hide scroll hints, disable smart tabs, and trim trailing spaces. Keyboard shortcuts are supported.

Evaluation and conclusion

We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that the app didn't hang, crash or prompt errors. It left a small footprint on system resources usage, so it didn't hamper the computer's performance.

Too bad that it hasn't been updated for a long time. Nevertheless, SSH Editor offers a straightforward and effective solution for connecting to SSH servers to quickly edit files.
