What’s New

Version 1.7.1

Fixes an issue that prevented Trailer from identifying draft PRs correctly.

From 1.7.0:
• iOS is now mature enough, and has enough handling for windowing and multitasking that it makes no sense to have an in-app web view and split-screen detail view on the iPad. Instead Trailer now works on iOS the same way it works on macOS - i.e. as a directory of items, and leaves opening and handling the URL of each item to the system. For instance, on iPad you can now set up your own split-screen by dragging an entry to the side of the screen and creating a new Safari window.
• Major UI refresh for the latest iOS versions, including improved system appearance support, iOS native system icons, context menus for items, and many miscellaneous UI fixes.
• Added option to use GitHub v4 API for syncing data. If you sync a large amount of PRs, Repositories, sync status items, responses and/or review statuses/assignments, then turning this option on can result in dramatic speed improvements when syncing (and a reduction in corresponding API usage) since the number of calls Trailer has to make is significantly reduced. Trailer needs to re-sync all data when you toggle this option, so be sure to do so as appropriate.
• v3 API sync also features various improvements and optimisations to speed up some operations.
• Option to display teams that have been assigned to review a PR.
• Option to mark merge conflicts in PRs (v4 API only)
• Option to show added/removed line counts in PRs, as well as the ability to sort using that as a criterion (v4 API only)
• Option to scan closed and merged items for new events like comments and reactions (v4 API only)
• Options to scan items created on any repository, irrespective of whether they are in the watchlist (v4 API only)
• Reaction and status scanning logic has changed to keep syncs sane and help them scale up for larger numbers of items. From now on, Trailer will scan a fixed amount of items for statuses and reactions on every sync, and will round-robin through all items. So if you sync 200 items, and you’ve set 50 items per refresh, then all items will be refreshed within 4 syncs.
• PR branch names shown in context menus, selecting them copies the branch name to the clipboard.
• Various minor bug fixes and tweaks across both macOS and iOS.

Does what is supposed to do.

I’ve been researching github issue management apps and this one is exactly what I needed. It perfectly imported my macOS Trailer configuration file.

The developer is very active and responsive.
