Access Git repositories on the go. Clone, edit, commit and push while allowing other apps access to repositories.
Git is a important part of our work-life and iOS can take part in this. The ability to commit even when offline has added utility on a device that moves in and out of network coverage. Cloning repositories gets you a local copy on your iOS device with commits for all branches. You can browse the content from within the app and make changes. Other applications supporting the Files app, WebDAV or x-callback-url has access to these files. Changes made can be committed and the commits can in turn be pushed back to the remote.
The idea of doing significant programming on iOS might seem far fetched when you are used to a large screen, a physical keyboard and a full IDE. But just as it turned out that not every email is serious prose, then not everything that goes on in Git is significant programming. Sometimes you just want to update a TODO file or make adjustments to your Jekyll site. Sometimes you just need to add a file the designer sent after hours.
If you ever make reminders about small things to do with the code-base, then you should give Working Copy a try. You will spend less time moving stuff around and you will get much better commit messages when you write them for fixes that are still fresh in your mind. You won't be leaving your computer behind any time soon, but sometimes it is faster to just fix things with the device in your hand.
Even if you never edit a line of code on iOS, Working Copy is a great companion for reviewing and discussing code. Repositories are cross indexed and with powerful fuzzy search you can quickly jump from a symbol to the declaration or reverse from the declaration to all usages. A graph of your commits lets you zoom out for a overview of the commit tree or zoom in for specifics about each commit, with speed and beauty you won’t find in desktop Git applications. Review the changes your files have gone through with a diff viewer that is great for text and images. There is even hex-dump mode for that obscure occasion.
Working Copy is a free download but you need to pay to unlock pro features such as the ability to push commits back to remote servers. There is no venture capital, large company or ads funding development and your support through in-app purchase directly sustains development.
Syntax highlighting for Pascal / Delphi and Ada.
Fixed glitch in the editor where scrolling would jump when editing long lines.
Fixes and adjustments for thrill seekers.
Under-the-hood changes to the text editor. You can no longer disable word-wrap but by removing this rarely used option it was possible to greatly increase performance when editing large files.
When cloning repositories where LFS blobs fail to resolve you are able to reclone with LFS disabled.
LFS compatibility with Azure DevOps.
Fixes problem where listing repositories on GitHub would time out for some users.
Added syntax highlighting for Gherkin .feature files.
Lots of smaller fixes and performance improvements.
This app is so cool!!
it had bug in landscape mode for iPhoneX.But, it was fixed, thank you.
i found another bug for landscape mode.
After I changed a tab from content to changes or status and reverse it to content , the code not displayed correctly.
I have tried to replicate this problem where reverting file from Status or Changes tab is not reflected in the Content tab, but the problem hasn't happened on my test devices so far. I will keep testing this while working version 3.3.0 but if you have some details about this bug such as the device type used, the type of file and the approximate size of the file, I would love to hear about this at firstname.lastname@example.org as this increases the odds of replicating the error.
It is nice for me!
It can init, add, commit, push (and also, pulll)!
I didn't try to merge, clone, branch, checkout, and so on. But I beleave that I will be able to do that with it, too!
Well... how to create a private repository on github in this app?
Thank you for the kind words.
You can create repositories on GitHub by first adding a new remote to a repository inside the app. Creating new remotes is then done at the bottom of this remote detail screen.
