  1. Manually choose icon

    Termius doesn't seem to set an icon for my Arch Linux hosts. It would be awesome if I could manually select an icon.

    • PETSCII

      With retro BBS'ing making such a big comeback I would really like to see Commodore PETSCII terminal support added.

      • Ability to remap control/function keys, esp Caps Lock

        In macOS, one can map the caps lock key to be the control key, just like the beloved VT-100s of my misspent youth. I use the iPad Pro + keyboard, and Apple has not made that remapping an os-level 'thing' so it would be nice to be able to do so in this app especially.

        • Edit files with sftp

          I have access to see all my files with sftp but I can't edit them? This would be very useful if I could. I would be happy if it downloaded, then edited, and once saved uploaded (similar to FileZilla) because sometimes I need to edit some files on the go.

            Hello.
            Thank you for your feedback!

            Since SFTP is only a file transfer protocol, we do not support file editing within the app.

            However, you may export files from Termius to a third party editing app, edit the file there and then export it back to Termius and upload to host.

            To transfer file from Termius to somewhere else
            - Copy file to local storage. Tap on copied files in local storage. Termius will suggest you a number of available options (a list of apps that allow file importing, such as DropBox, Google Drive and so on.)

            To transfer file from somewhere else to Termius
            - Open the app that allows file sharing, for example DropBox. Find the file that you want to share with Termius. Typically there will be a “Share” button somewhere in the app. Tap on this button and you should see a list of available apps…

          • Add the Esc key to Ipad Pro OEM keyboard

            The current Apple Smart Keyboard lacks the upper row of keys, as most of their functionality are now via touch. However, for coding, the escape key is a must, so it would be great to emulate the Escape key whenever the top-left key (currently its back-tick/tilde) is pressed.
            Its a really pain to code in vim, or almost any other terminal related thing without being able to use the escape key.

            • X11 forwarding

              Hi.

              I love this app and am using it quite satisfied.

              Only one feature missing for me is X forwarding.
              Isn't it unavailable to add that feature?
              If so, it's totally fine but If the app had that feature,
              this app will be the best app for sshing.

              Thanks again!

              • Allow two side-by-side sessions in landscape mode

                There's enough screen real-estate for this on an ipad or other tablet - the ability to see two sessions, refer between them, and copy/paste would help greatly

                • [Major bug] The iOS App won't start a new terminal?

                  I just downloaded the app and added a new host. Then I go to Terminals -> Search or type command -> Tap on the recently added: 'mosh MyServer -p 22'.

                  Nothing happens.

                  I try typing this manually and tapping 'Connect'.

                  Nothing happens.

                  Am I doing something wrong? How do I ssh into a server? It looks like the app is just completely broken...

                    Hello,
                    Thank you for the feedback.
                    Please contact us through Help & Feedback → I’ve Got a Question form so we could investigate the case more carefully.

                    Also please note that there may be several reasons for such behaviour.

                    First most common reason is that your host may be unreachable from the network that your iOS device is using.

                    Please none that since you are using mosh you should make sure that mosh server is installed on your host. Also when you are using mosh via ‘Terminals → Search or type command’ field Termius will use default mosh ports and mosh command (-p 22 is for initial SSH connection to launch mosh, not mosh it self). You may need to change mosh command.

                    To do that please create Host item at Hosts screen and make corresponding configurations there (to change mosh settings please enable ‘Use SSH’ and ‘Use Mosh’…

                  • OS detection for Windows

                    Please add support for detecting Windows as an OS over SSH.

                          • The keyboard buttons are keying in characters and question marks

                            It’s be superb if you have a look at an issue I’m having, anytime I use an arrow key the client begins inserting question marks and characters into my terminal session, this is a pretty serious bug that renders the client unusable for my purposes. If I can provide any more information about the problem please reach out to me.

                            • Certain ANSI escape sequences not functioning

                              For example

                              echo -e "\033[4mHello\033[0m"

                              should print 'Hello' underlined.

                              All the other ANSI escape sequences seem to be ok.

                                    I love your app. I’ve been running this for years on my iOS devices.

                                    If possible, please add the single back quote (aka: back tick) to the keyboard.

                                    Keep up the great work.

                                    • Higher contrast cursor

                                      Hi. I find the cursors in most color schemes hard to see. Maybe make them higher contrast and/or blinking. Or, better yet, customizable :)

                                      • PIN screen not fast enough

                                        Hi,

                                        before showing the PIN screen, there is a slight gap, where I'm able to see the hostlist for example. With the right timing i was also able to make a screenshot. So anyone getting passed my iOS PIN will also see my hostlist.
                                        Maybe changing this behavior would be a good idea.
                                        Cheers,
                                        Chris

                                        • Different keyboard layout

                                          Hi
                                          Probably already sent suggestion. Some keys on the second keyboard (tab over all) would be better allocated on the first one, due to heavy usage with Linux connections, without switching between two keyb.
                                          Also numeric keys would be better placed in the first one.
                                          Thanks
