Seems like there should be an app that serves as an editor for you well enough. The syncing problem is only a problem because Apple (I'm assuming your on iOS, and I don't know as much about android) doesn't give you a fucking filesystem.

I'd be pretty happy with something like ViMobile, and `git push` personally.

This situation has improved a lot within the last year. I'd highly recommend trying out a combination of a-Shell (includes vim!), and WorkingCopy for git. Both of these can access any folder in Files or any external file provider (even outside of their sandbox). SecureShellFish is also great if you want to interface with a server.

And before anyone asks what ViMobile is... I wouldn't know, developing applications for iOS is stupidly hard.

What about the native files app? Right now it seems Bear is using it.
