You didn´t install kate?

Plasma desktop is in a different package group, but I think you can also just 
install package for kate (which may just be name kate, but I don´t use a 
Plasma desktop on CentOS, so this is guesswork).

Or you install kate on Windows and hope that it includes enough of KDE 
Frameworks to actually use sftp/fish kio slaves. That way you wouldn´t have to 
install a desktop on your server.
