  1. Access Snippets within a terminal

    Like you can quickly access the SFTP feature via the folder button an additional button for the very useful Snippets feature would be great.

      • Choose encoding

        Would it be possible to add an option to select the terminal encoding (in my case ISO-8859-1, but UTF-8 etc. would be useful too)? Many thanks in advance!

          • Terminal log

            I think it will be great if I can view my last session log with commands and their output, for example if connection is unexpectedly closed.

            • Need debug log

              I tried connecting to one of my servers with Termius, but the connection failed. The system log on the server said "no suitable primes in /etc/ssh/primes". I think that means Termius is attempting a protocol 1 connection instead of protocol 2. It would help in debugging things if there were an option to log the connection negotiation, as in the OpenSSH equivalent of "ssh -vv".

              • Show licenses

                It could be fine to show open source libraries licenses. I think you use xterm.js or hterm and probably other libraries.

                • Duplicate configuration

                  When it is needed to configure multiple connection to similar hosts, it would be good to be able to duplicate the current host and change only the needed parts (like the IP)

                  • App Help Available w/o login

                    Seems like the help is only available when you login to a host. It would be nice to have your app help available when not online. --As a new user. thanks!

                    • Add the option to turn off "tapping url/email" feature

                      While trying to scroll through email and web logs, if you're not careful where you swipe, you end up launching the browser or mail.

                      Possible alternative solutions:
                      increase the required tap time or use the less than elegant "are you sure" prompt.

                      • Touch support in vim

                        I have become a big fan of serverauditor! I can connect to a screen session on my server and actually code from my iPad. Awesome!

                        Perhaps surprisingly, vim is almost perfect for use with serverauditor because you can do so much with just the basic letter keys (syntax highlighting displays perfectly, too). However, when working with a large file, it would be great to be able to move the cursor by touching where I want it to go. When sshing from a desktop, I can do `:set mouse=a` to easily enable doing this sort of thing with a mouse, but…

                        • Add back tick key

                          The tmux config on all the servers I connect to use the backtick (inverted comma) for keyboard shortcuts. It would be very useful if this were added to the keyboard.

                            • Connect to AWS

                              It would be great if one could connect to Amazon AWS to get a list oft running EC2 instances to directly connect to them.
                              Since they regularly change their IP addresses upon scaling for example, it makes it hard to maintain a list in the app.

                              • keymap compatibility

                                In some shells the backspace key isn't working, it sends something different from ^h. For example tcsh.

                                Similar issues exist with the delete key.

                                Most terminal emulators have a setting to toggle between modes.

                                • super keys

                                  I like that the important non-alphanumerical keys are available. A nice addition would be small macros mapped to Unix commands like grep & sed and allow us to alter and define our own macros too.

                                  I love this tool and I've written my own widgets to do the macro thing for me, but my bashrc is becoming unruly and I now know too much about ack to carry on real conversations.

                                  Thanks for making ssh awesome, hopefully it drives more people to use the CLI.

                                        Hello,
                                        We are sorry for the inconvenience.

                                        Termius has this feature but unfortunately it’s broken in current release. We’ll fix it with the next update.

                                        For now you may use a workaround:
                                        In Files app select the key file and press “share” button (the one that has the icon of a square and arrow, should be at the bottom-left corner) and press “Copy” in the sharing menu. Now you should be able to paste it in Termius in the New Key screen.

                                        Here is the video example I’ve recorded for you:

                                        Hope it helps

                                        • Cannot Ctrl + Alt + Fn + F#

                                          Every time I try to do this it cancels the locked Ctrl + Alt
