Use ssh-agent for atom.io remote-sync under MacOS

Posted on 22. Januar 2017 Comments

If you use the IDE atom.io with some sort of remote sync/scp/sftp package you can’t just use ssh-keys out of the box, if you set them up with a passphrase (which you should!). Here’s the 3 options most plugins offer:

  1. Use password (unless you disabled the option on the server)
  2. Use ssh-key
  3. Use ssh-agent

The problem with #2 is, that you would have to save your passphrase in a clear-text file which is never a good idea. But you can use the ssh-agent on MacOS the following way:

  1. create a ~/.ssh/config file
  2. add this line: AddKeysToAgent yes
  3. $ ssh-add .ssh/id_rsa
  4. restart atom

Flattr this!

Screenshots don’t show up on the desktop anymore on MacOS

This is a bug in finder, the files are being stored and will show up in the console with the ls command. However, to see them in finder, click on the Apple symbol on the top left corner, select Force Quit and then Finder. It probably would also help to just reboot.
