Makes it easier to preview files opened from remote FTP servers through a web server while editing.


  • Previews files opened from remote FTP servers through a web server specified in plugin preferences.
  • Ability to maintain up to 3 different web servers for previewing.
  • Editor Preview tab or the plugin button can be used to invoke the remote preview.


  • To assign a web server for previewing remote FTP files: invoke the Preferences dialog using the plugin drop-down menu. Enter the "Display name of the FTP Server" which is the name given to the FTP server in the Workspace (not necessarily the server address, but the name that appears in the Workspace window). Secondly, enter the "Web root address used for previewing" files opened from the FTP server. Finally, check the "Enable remote preview" checkbox and click the "OK" button.
  • To preview a remote file through the specified web server: open a file from one of the FTP servers listed under plugin preferences and click the plugin icon.
  • To automate the process of previewing remote files through a web server when the Preview tab in the editor window is selected: pick "Edit | Preferences" from the main menu and change to the "Preview" tab. Make sure that the "Enable file mappings" option is checked and click "Edit Preview Rules." Click "Add" under "File extension mappings." Enter a list of extensions of files that should be previewed through the web server, such as "php;asp;jsp" (without the quotes). Click the "Plugin" radio button and pick "hkRemotePreview" from the drop-down menu. Click "OK" followed by two more "OK" clicks to close the preferences dialog. Now the Preview tab in editor windows will automatically preview the listed file types through the specified web server (inside the Preview window).
