+Remote Exec lets you ship python code to a remote machine and run it
+there, all without installing anything other than the standard Python
+interpreter on the server.
+
+It connects to the remote host using SSH, sends the python files you
+specify, compiles them on the server, and passes control to the
+specified main function.
+
+Additionally, the client arranges for stdin/stdout on the server side
+to be connected to a network socket on the client side, so that you
+can communicate with the uploaded server binary as if you'd connected
+to it normally.
+
+What this lets you do is ensure that the server end of your software
+is never out of date, since it'll always be in sync with the client
+code you're running.
+
+The original idea came from Avery Pennarun's awesome sshuttle
+(http://github.com/apenwarr/sshuttle), which uses this great hack to
+function with any server that has Python installed (i.e. all of
+them).
+
+His original version smushed all files into a single namespace,
+however while I was factoring it out of sshuttle he came up with the
+compile/eval/__dict__.update hack that allows reconstruction of the
+original module structure on the server, neatly avoiding the need for
+the skip_imports hack sshuttle uses. I took it from there and
+implemented it as a reusable library.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
