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 unlock pro features such as the ability to push commits and manage more than 5 repositories. There is no venture capital, large company or ads funding development and your support through in-app purchase directly sustains development.
When you pay to unlock you get permanent access to all pro features at the time of purchase as well as any added the next year. When 12 months have passed you keep all existing pro features but any new ones introduced are locked until you renew your unlock.
Control whether linked repositories store .git directory inside Working Copy or in the external directory from Repository Configuration screen.
Audio & Video files stop playing when you navigate away and will only auto-play when enabled from the file mode popup.
Improved behaviour when you Sync or Pull repository in the unborn HEAD state, which is when there has never been any commits.
Smoother hiding of top and bottom bars during file Preview.
Includes the major changes from v4.8.5:
Manage repositories outside the Working Copy location keeping them on iCloud Drive, locally on your device or on remote servers via Secure ShellFish.
When adding repositories you tap "Link external directory" and pick a folder in the Files app. This will appear as any other repository inside Working Copy and as you edit, commit, push and pull the changes are made to the original linked directory.
Since Working Copy needs folder-level access this can only work with Files app locations that support picking folders. Unfortunately the major cloud storage solutions only support granting file-level access.
A .git folder is created if the directory you pick isn't a repository but kept inside Working Copy to not confuse other apps.
This is a pro feature available to users that purchased or upgraded their pro unlock after September 2020.
Love it / 最高です
Well sustained. I experienced a bug and reported it, then the developer replied in a few hours saying they’d fix it.
Also, as a student, it’s very helpful that they offer free Pro features to students.
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.
love this app from early version. I could read the code during my commuting to work.
however, latest version, I cannot zoom in/out the editor. hope this will get fixed at next version!!
Are you unable to change the font size in the current version or are you missing the ability to scroll while showing a miniature version of the file while holding down the finger on the line numbers to the left?
