Local way, is actually how it was designed by default, and how you'll get the best experience.

What issues did you face? 

In short how to start using it.

  • You need to configure access to your server through parameters under "objectscript.conn"
  • Use your local code, if you already have it, or export code from the server, once you are connected
  • Edit and save files as a usual file, will save it on the server and compile it, in case of any compilation issues it will notify you about it.

Is there a single development server which all developers connect to?  If you are not able to have a fully isolated development environment for each developer then you will end up getting frustrated trying to use client-side source control.

You might want to consider the new server-side Git source control hooks which were recently launched:

This won't solve your issue of working while not on VPN, but it will allow multiple developers to work against the same instance without stepping on each others' toes.
