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.

In 2022, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2022 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.

RebelMouse Q1 2021 Platform Updates

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.

Google Says They’re Increasing Communication About Algorithm Updates

Google Says They’re Increasing Communication About Algorithm Updates

If you feel like you’ve been hearing about updates from Google more often, it’s not just in your head. During a recent Google Meetup in NYC, Search Liaison Danny Sullivan said that Google hasn’t been launching more updates lately, but it has made a point to communicate about its updates to users more frequently.

Even though you may know when updates are happening more than before, you still won’t know about every little change that Google makes. In a post about the topic, Sullivan said that Google’s algorithm is updated thousands of times a year. Many of these incremental updates are so small that users and site owners won’t even know they are happening. Together, these minor updates add up to enhance Google’s search experience overall.

New Report: Email Is a ‘Key Tool’ for Building Loyalty

For the first time ever, the Digital News Report authored by Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism has dedicated an entire chapter to news consumption via email. The report analyzed data from thousands of readers of online news across 46 different markets. While the insights around email are focused on news content specifically, the data is useful for any publisher looking to enhance a newsletter strategy or even launch a new campaign. The findings in this year’s report shows that email continues to rise in popularity as an effective way to reach hyper-targeted audiences.

Who Reads Email Newsletters?

While email is not the primary source of traffic for most news outlets, it is more popular in the U.S. than in other countries. This year’s Digital News Report found that 22% of users surveyed in the U.S. use newsletters or email alerts, with almost half of them saying it is their main way of accessing digital news.
