I really like the PhpStorm IDE but I have a few questions about remote development.
I usually use an editor with built in FTP and just do live edits. I see that PhpStorm has a remote file viewer, but I was wondering if I can just edit those files directly?
I tried mapping a drive to the FTP location and creating a project but the IDE puts some files there that I do not want (.idea, etc) as the code is under version control.
I hope this makes sense. I guess my question(s) is this: What is the best way to go about remote development?
