    Anyone here interested in Dropbox support in HTML-Kit Tools?

    So you could add your Dropbox folder to the project window and edit
    files on it the way you currently edit files on FTP and local folders.

      Not exactly an answer to your question, Chami, but I'm using Dropbox to
      connect files between my iMac, MacBook and MacMini with VirtualBox / Windows
      XP Pro. And in the last I'm using HTML-Kit 292.
      Works fine for me.

        You kind of did answer my question because the more feedback I get the
        more I see that Dropbox isn't really being used to upload files to
        websites. Not frequently enough anyway. So it doesn't sound like
        integrating Dropbox in project windows would be all that useful.

        Thank you, Gerard.

      I currently save locally and then to the FTP server.
      So, I'd be able to save locally and then to the FTP server and
      then to dropbox ?

      If so, great idea.

        I was thinking about making it possible to list multiple Dropbox
        accounts in project windows. So if you have multiple clients that use
        Dropbox to send their website files back and forth, you'd be able to
        simply double click any given client's Dropbox folder in project window,
        and directly edit files on it (or upload, download, etc.).

        If you only want to upload files to your own Dropbox account though, you
        can do this through "Advanced > Additional save-to folders" option on
        FTP properties dialog box. Tools will copy uploaded files to the Dropbox
        folder that you list there, which in turn gets uploaded to your cloud
        space :)

        Thank you, Bill.

      I VPN when I need files off the server, or want to work on files. People who
      need files I have use FTP.
      Cannot think of a reason to use a dropbox ... though i see it would to
      useful for those who don't have a server.

        I'm also thinking that something like this may not get used much.
        Although I mentioned Dropbox, the same would apply to Box, GDrive, S3,
        etc. Cloud storage is great for collaboration and viewing files on
        mobile devices, but perhaps not a high priority feature just yet.

        Thank you, Bald.

      I am a bit late on my reply, but I have nearly zero interest in seeing Dropbox/Box/SugarSync integration.

      On the same vein, integrated SFTP/SCP support would be sweet, since I do not use FTP for anything at this point.

      Right now, my solution to updating files on my remote server is to run WinSCP in the background and allow it to synchro the local folder to the remote machine, but I have to also remember to pull the remote files to local before I start working, since when I'm not home, I work from my Android tablet and its SFTP capable text editor.

      I would love to not have to run WinSCP to do this.

        Funny you should mention WinSCP, because I was in fact looking at adding
        an option to integrate with it :)

        WinSCP has recently added some programming hooks to make it possible to
        talk directly with it so it'll be less painful than syncing through a
        local folder.

        I've read conflicting information about restrictions on selling software
        with SSL-ish protocols outside the USA (where I live) so not being a
        lawyer I'm trying to avoid any such complications. If this is no longer
        applicable then I'd like to have support for this built in.
