I use vi on top of the terminal multiplexor 'screen' -- screen is
my 'remote desktop', runs on my screen server (which is always on,
except for kernel updates), meaning my workspace is exactly as I've
left it when I log in in the morning.

Vi has context-sensitive text color, tab-completion, everything
you could ever want in an editor -- but the learning curve is steep
and it's text-based. Still, my workflow using Vi running on screen
is much faster than it ever was with graphical editors. In my
experience, for coding, mice just get in the way.

Since both utilities run from the command line all you need to do to
'scp' your file is run scp from the command line in another screen
window ;-)
