FTP/SFTP browsers ( top )

BBEdit offers the ability to work with files on FTP and SFTP servers as easily as if they were part of your local file system.

Organize your projects ( top )

You can also add files from anywhere (on disk, or from FTP/SFTP) to a BBEdit Project (and save the Project for reuse). While the Disk Browser and FTP/SFTP Browser windows show you the structure of your volumes, BBEdit Projects let you easily access related files without them having to be located together.

Command-line tools ( top )

(Note: The command-line tools described here are not included with versions of BBEdit purchased from the Mac App Store, in order to comply with Apple’s submission guidelines. The tools are available separately, however.)

The bbedit command-line tool lets you open FTP and SFTP URLs from the command line, and behaves consistently with other Unix tools by allowing you to create files on the fly, as well as by accepting input piped from other Unix commands. (Try “ls -la | bbedit”, for example.)

bbdiff provides a command-line interface to “Find Differences”; it’s very useful when used as a command-line diff helper for SCM systems such as Subversion, Perforce, or Git.

Use bbfind to run multi-file searches from the command line, and return the results for additional processing

See Work Your Way for more Terminal integration.
