    • Key-combination support could be improved

      I use byobu (a fancy front end to screen/tmux) on most of my servers. It's great, but relies on a lot of key combinations like shift+arrow, shift+fX, alt+fX, etc. So far I haven't found any iOS ssh clients that seem to handle this properly (I can toggle shift, then press fX on your keyboard extension, but it only seems to send an unmodified fX. Ditto with alt and ctrl, with fX and arrows). If you could make this work it would be a huge win for me.

      • Keyboard buttons with multiple input chars like in Textastic

        It would be awesome, if in the extended keyboard there would be some buttons with multiple input possibilities, but not with a hovering selector panel, but based on a swipe gesture.

        On normal keypress, the standard character is typed, but if a little swipe gesture follows the key press, to one of the corners of the button, then some other character is typed.

        I found this kind of button bar incredibly useful in the code editor app called textastic.

        I think this feature would come handy for an shh client as well, especially with customisable buttons.

        • Custom key combinations for shake

          Ability to create custom key combinations when shaking the device. Right now there's a limited amount of available combinations (and I'd like to make a shake do Alt-A).

          Thanks!

              • Avoid keystrokes from corrupting source files

                While trying to toggle for special characters during the vim session, I accidentally entered an unprintable character which make my source file unless because I can figure out where exactly the bad character is. I know I can use some tool to get rid of the unprintable character(s), just just to be safe, I simply revert back to an old version. Which means I am trying to save 15 minutes during my commute ended up cost me 2 hours of work.

                When how the keyboard toggles (emoji and other foreign language keyboard), it's pretty easy to get tripped on entering…

                • CoreOS icon

                  My Ubuntu boxes all have an Ubuntu icon. Would be awesome to have a CoreOS icon for CoreOS servers.

                  Awesome software!

                    It would be useful to have a text or csv based import/export of hosts and groups directly on the iPad.

                    • 3D Touch custom actions

                      It would be really nice if we can configure, within terminal, the force touch features.
                      eg: Say I use a specific command often, and typing it takes some time. It'd be cool if I can set these commands somewhere, and then upon force touch make these commands appear.

                      But if that's too much, it'd still be handy to have a few 3D/force touch quick actions implemented in the terminal. (Guess you must be able to disable it, some people dislike it.)

                            • Hop hosts for groups

                              I have few networks with SSH hop behind. It is difficult to manage those situations with server auditor, only by using port forwarding (however dynamic forwarding would be better).

                              But I think, it is great to add option for main server in a group to be an SSH hop.

                              • Support cursor keys on custom keyboards

                                I'm using PadKeys, which is a third-party keyboard that works like a full laptop keyboard including number and punctuation keys in the normal places. Very useful with Serverauditor. Unfortunately the cursor keys on it don't work! Tapping them just does nothing, and I have to use the Serverauditor toolbar instead. They work in other apps just fine. Is there any chance of having them work in Serverauditor?

                                  Your app is very pretty but some of us aging admins would prefer more saturated colors and larger text in the entire UI. Thanks.

                                    I can't copy files from one server to another, because I have to use sudo/root access for this, so it would be great if there would be a copy using sudo function in the sftp tab.

                                    • Access embedded browser with address bar from a key

                                      Quite often I am coding or sysadmin-ing, and need to lookup a command. It would be great if I could bring up the internal browser to do a fast Google search. It would be even better if when I bring it up again it was on the same url, so I could check it I typed it the command correctly.

                                      Right now I have to leave the browser, which may timeout while I'm google searching......

                                        A) use this username and password
                                        B) use Saved username and password

                                        And don't close the sessions to see the results

                                        For security reasons I don't save the password in the app so I need part A)

                                        So it is possible to update a branch of servers at one time
