Access Git repositories on the go. Clone, edit, commit and push while allowing other apps access to repositories.

Git is a important part of our work-life and iOS can take part in this. The ability to commit even when offline has added utility on a device that moves in and out of network coverage. Cloning repositories gets you a local copy on your iOS device with commits for all branches. You can browse the content from within the app and make changes. Other applications supporting the Files app, WebDAV or x-callback-url has access to these files. Changes made can be committed and the commits can in turn be pushed back to the remote.

The idea of doing significant programming on iOS might seem far fetched when you are used to a large screen, a physical keyboard and a full IDE. But just as it turned out that not every email is serious prose, then not everything that goes on in Git is significant programming. Sometimes you just want to update a TODO file or make adjustments to your Jekyll site. Sometimes you just need to add a file the designer sent after hours. 

If you ever make reminders about small things to do with the code-base, then you should give Working Copy a try. You will spend less time moving stuff around and you will get much better commit messages when you write them for fixes that are still fresh in your mind. You won't be leaving your computer behind any time soon, but sometimes it is faster to just fix things with the device in your hand.

When you do need to perform real work on iOS, Working Copy is a powerful tool. Editor has syntax highlighting for more than 50 programming languages and a built-in color picker. Preview images, Markdown and HTML files with a Javascript console pointing to errors in your code. Create new branches and merge or rebase them back, with a brilliant merge-tool for handling conflicts.

Even if you never edit a line of code on iOS, Working Copy is a great companion for reviewing and discussing code. Repositories are cross indexed and with powerful fuzzy search you can quickly jump from a symbol to the declaration or reverse from the declaration to all usages. A graph of your commits lets you zoom out for a overview of of the commit tree or zoom in for specifics about each commit, with speed and beauty you won’t find in desktop Git applications. Review the changes your files have gone through with a diff viewer that is great for text and images. There is even hex-dump mode for that obscure occasion.

Working Copy is a free download but you need to pay to unlock pro features such as the ability to push commits back to remote servers. There is no venture capital, large company or ads funding development and your support through in-app purchase directly sustains development.


Version 3.5.8

Added support for newest device screens.

Syntax highlighting for VHDL.

Fetch All connects to all remotes simultaneously which could cause some ssh servers to refuse connections. It will now throttle itself to avoid such errors.

With support for Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12 and the ability to generate x-callback-url commands from within the app, this release is all about automating Working Copy to speed up your workflow.
Operations you perform often can be turned into Siri Shortcuts on iOS 12 and activated through speech. Use this to commit, pull/push repositories, copy files to/from the clipboard and a lot more.
If you have specific data flow or control flow requirements x-callback-url might be a better fit. Have a look at
Settings > App Integrations > Callback examples
listing recent actions as x-callback-url's that you can edit by tapping parameter values.
These x-callback-url commands can be turned into Siri Shortcuts on iOS 12 or copied and dragged to apps such as Workflow, Shortcuts or Drafts making it very easy to automate even complex operations. Do it once manually and adjust parameter values with guidance from the app.
Learn more about this in the Callbacks section of the Users' Guide.
The app registers these recent actions:
view file content,
edit files,
import files,
fetching one or all repositories,
pull/push repositories,
start/stopping WebDAV,
switching/creating/deleting branches,
tagging commits,
cloning or initialising repos,
moving/renaming files,
running ssh commands,
export repo/directory as zip,
listing branches or commits.
Specify the currently shown repository, file or branch in x-callback-url commands using the value $current for parameters repo, path or branch. This is especially useful in combination with Siri Shortcuts.
Branch picker shows a (i) button to the right of the currently checked out branch, making it fast to show the detail screen for this branch. This is where you can configure the branch to support rewriting history even after pushing to a remote, giving you additional flexibility when rebasing or resetting the branch head. Just remember not to force push to branches other people are using.
Improved importing files from iCloud Drive when picking directories not yet downloaded to device.
Many other improvements and fixes.

Sehr gut bis auf...

ich bin bisher ganz zufrieden. Ich kann meine git Projekte für die uni auf dem handy ansehen und lesen. Man könnte sogar wenn man unterwegs ist und gerade eine idee hat den code schreiben und committen. Leider braucht man dafür die premium Version von 12€ nach der 10 Tage Testversion. Ich würde mich über einen studenten preis oder ein Trial über meine ganze Studienzeit freuen. Über die 10 Tage Testversion hatte ich eigentlich nicht genug Zeit zum testen ob alles so funktioniert wie man es gerne hätte, wie man es von eclipse oder itelij kennt


Super Lösung für unterwegs

Einer der wenigen Apps die ich als Entwickler gerne benutze. Funktioniert genau so wie man es kennt. Vorteil ist das man das Smartphone immer dabei hat und wenn man im Team arbeitet bekommt man immer die neusten Infos wie es im Projekt steht.


Hervorragender Git Client

Aufgeräumte Oberfläche, erlaubt das Clonen von verschiedensten Quellen (u.A. lokal eingerichtetem Raspberry Pi über SSH), bietet eine 10 Tage Probeversion für commits+Push an UND ermöglicht effizientes Arbeiten auf dem iPad dank des Document Pickers! Bis jetzt sehr zufrieden, weiter so.

Update: Migration von Enterprise Version lief problemlos — Gratulation!
