I normally use TextWrangler to edit files stored on a Linux server, accessed via SFTP.

It would be nice if Marked were able to preview files accessed via HTTP, HTTPS, or (especially) SFTP.

I understand you wouldn't be able to automatically detect changes to the file without continuously polling. Maybe you can automatically reload based on a timer, with a menu command and keyboard shortcut to trigger an immediate reload..

Right now I'm working around it by using Transmission to "mount" the SFTP directory, but I think it would be cleaner if Marked were able to do the SFTP operations by itself (like TextWrangler does.)

    That's well outside the scope of Marked's intended functionality. What
    you're describing is essentially a web browser, and a build system that
    watches source files could update an HTML file easily.
