Editing files in terminal editors as VIM or Nano can be quite slow especially if you are not familiar working with them. A good substitute is SSHFS. SSHFS stands for SSH File System and gives you ability to edit files located on remote server (external beta in our case) from your local machine. The best part is that you can use any IDE you prefer (such as Atom or Sublime). If you still want to use VIM or NANO, please check documentation on VIM and Nano.


On Mac

Go to OS X Fuse website (https://osxfuse.github.io/) and download and install these two packages:

  • OSXFUSE
  • SSHFS

When you are done installing you are ready for mounting:

1. Pick a folder on your local machine where you will mount remote server and make sure that folder is not mounted yet.

umount -f /path/to/the/local/folder

2. Open selected folder in your favourite IDE (Atom in my case). Make sure that folder is opened before mounting otherwise editor could crash.

atom /path/to/the/local/folder

3. Mounting external beta to your local machine.

sshfs USERNAME@roar-beta-dev.rebelmouse.com:/home/USERNAME/roars/ /path/to/the/local/folder

4. Type in verification code and the password. You are good to go.


Working with Atom vs. Sublime

There is small difference between Atom and Sublime after mounting.

Sublime checks entire files tree structure in the beginning and this can take few minutes so you will be able to start working which could be annoying. But on the other hand you have access to all files in all sub folders right away in the developing process.

Atom checks only first level tree structure which means you can start working right away. What is bad is that it takes few seconds every time you expand a new sub folder in files tree.

Speed, performance, and Core Web Vitals enhancements

Click here to read our Q2 2021 platform performance updates!

At RebelMouse, we pour our souls into making sure that our platform is always the most modern, high-performance CMS on the market. In fact, we invested over $100,000 worth of hours into our platform in Q1 2021 alone. This has resulted in updates and performance enhancements that publishers would have to pay for on their own to make happen on any other platform, such as WordPress. We're proud to be at a level of scale where we can invest this way into our platform, and we will continue to invest at this rate every quarter moving forward just as we have in the past.

Here are the major updates that we've added to the platform in Q1.

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
