  1. Please allow run snippets in desktop version, as I have now in iOS. I need run some snippets not only on start

    I would like to run some snippets manual, not only on connection to server

    • Windows app is lacking all the advertised features but SSH.

      Telnet, SFTP etc is all missing. I feel misinformed by the website and would like to know when i can expect these features in the desktop app.

      • Multi instances

        It seems not possible to launch multiple instances of the desktop app.
        It would be nice to use space on multi screen setups.

          • Better sync of keys, keys' passwords and identities accross plateforms with the mac application

            Since the release of the new 3.5.1 iOS version, I’m facing issues with the macOS version, that already missed some of the features. It seems it doesn’t like much the new ED25519 keys, and now, I have a blank page instead of the hosts lists because I configured a new host to use such a ED25519 key.

            Are you about to release an update to this app ? I’ll gladly change my evaluation when those problems are solved.

            Compared to this, the non-customizable themes are just cat piss.

            Update : it kept doing that for a while and suddenly after…

              • Make snippets selectable for active terminal

                I would like to be able to select a snippet my from snippet library and automatically have it executed in the active terminal. I am using the windows app and I see that I can have a snippet execute on startup, but I don't see a way to have a snippet automatically executed on the active terminal.

                • Add ProxyCommand support

                  In order to directly access computers behind a firewall, which are only accessible through a login server, it would be nice to add a proxy command like
                  Host internal-server.com
                  ProxyCommand ssh -q loginserver.com nc -q0 internal-server.com 22

                      • Add telnet support

                        Many devices like routers and so on don't support ssh, so old good telnet would be certainly useful.

                        • Mosh support

                          Mosh being an SSH for mobile terminals, it would only seem appropriate for this app to support it!

                          For those who haven't heard of it before, head to https://mosh.mit.edu and read all about it. Basic idea is to use UDP rather than TCP, which lets you reconnect after a connection dropout, meaning you can easily be on the go, changing wifi/data antennas without any issues.
