Kate-Get is a little Ruby gem I made after I switched over to using Kate and Git for development. When working on web applications, I often find myself running several developments sites running on remote servers. I like to edit the remote files over SFTP directly so that once I save them I can see the changes applied immediately. I might have many files open in Kate at a time like this, but once I’m happy with the current state of them, I want an easy way to pull them into my local git repo to commit the changes. Kate-Get does this with rsync and can be configured for multiple remote sites through a simple YAML config file.
This is pretty much my first post since the soft launch of my site several months ago. I’ve been busy with other projects and I wanted to hold off on working on the site until I had a chance to become more familiar with git and decide on what web development tools to code the site with. The new style is still a first draft but I really like how it turned out. It’s now running on the technology I will be using for any future work on this site; here is what I’ve decided on so far:
