A project in skEdit is a collection of files within a directory, along with associated project metadata. Projects can be local (on your computer), remote (on a server, accessed via FTP/SFTP/WebDAV), or both (a local project mirrored on a remote server). If you open a directory in skEdit, a project will automatically be created. Alternatively, you can explicitly create a project from the "Project Manager", available from the Windows menu.
The files for a project will be displayed in the "Project View" to the left of the editing area. From the Project View, you can perform file operations such as create, rename, delete, move, and duplicate. The project may also display other columns for file metadata:
Files with unsaved changes are shown in bold.
The files for a local project reside on a mounted volume. File operations will be applied immediately. In addition, skEdit will watch the filesystem for external modifications and update the project accordingly. For example, if a file is created in the Finder, it will automatically be added to the Project View.
A local project can be created by opening a directory or via the Project Manager.
