Same question really....does this only work on a machine running Sharepoint? Or is it more like Sharepoint Designer inside Visual Studio and allows editing of files locally?

SPDevExplorer uses a web service that must be installed on the SharePoint machine where the files must be edited. The files can be edited from a machine that does NOT contain SharePoint.

It does not work like SharePoint designer that does NOT require installation of additional tooling on the SharePoint server.

Note that release 2.4 is available now.
