build tools for brs developers?

I recently switched from coding in webstorm to atom. I usually just zipped my code and uploaded to the Web interface of my local box. I am trying to streamline the dev process as this is cumbersome.

Does anyone use anything that will automatically send to the dev box? For example, in a Web project a developer would use grunt or webpack to hot load. Does anyone have a hot reload set up where on change it is zipped and sent over to the local ip of the box automatically?

Or even a build tool like ANT where we can run a simple command like "ant deploy"

Some of us use a shell script to deploy, I personally wouldn't want it to be automatic though.

the team I'm on uses gradle to do this, when saving a file in the workspace it automatically builds and deploys.
I've also used shell scripts on mac to zip, deploy & archive my previous build.

Did you try the Eclipse plugin? That's what I'm using and I'm very happy with it.
