Source Files is a faster way to access GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket from the Finder and Files app without having to clone repositories or commit changes.

Using REST APIs instead of the traditional Git protocol you will be editing files in even the largest repositories in seconds:
• Drag a repository URL to the Finder
• Browse the directory that immediately appears
• Open and Edit files in your favorite app

Source Files is file oriented and making edits to 3 different files will result in 3 commits. It is possible to configure the app to work in a branch where a messy commit history is acceptable and merge changes back using pull requests. Consider using traditional Git clients like Working Copy or Tower for projects that need a tidy commit history in all branches.

There is rich support for automation with Shortcuts actions to List, Download, Upload and Move files.

Uploading files from the Mac services menu and share sheet is supported and very fast as target directories are remembered for different file types.

Downloading and Uploading files are pro features. You get a 7 day free trial of all Pro features to explore the benefits after which you can subscribe Monthly or purchase a Lifetime unlock which is shared between iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Source Files is restricted by GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket API quotas that depend on your account privileges.

What’s New

Version 2024.26

Shortcuts action to Upload has new choice when file already exists to pick a related unused filename.

Source Files is an Awesome App

Extremely useful for anyone who uses Git repositories, allowing you to have direct and easy access to them from within the Files app. A great companion app to Working Files (also by the same developer) for when you just need to make minor changes or quickly access files.

Working Copy is better and nearly infinitely cheaper.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the kind words about Working Copy.

Some of the users needed a fast way to make changes to large repositories without having to clone.

This is why I decided to also create Source Files but I agree that in most scenaries a traditional Git client is preferable.
