This is amazing, but..

So I absolutely the thought of this. I have both a Mac and iPad Pro. I am a CS major and the thought of just needing to carry my iPad sounds awesome. I’d like to see support for editors and compilers. Currently I use vim (you either love it or hate it). but we cant really even open or edit text files on this app can we? I found another app as an SSH client for my iPad so that will do for now. Keep up the great work!

Please continue

Please continue development of this long needed app!

This, is not, bash.

Also some critical things are needed to be useful, like: chmod, ssh, rsync, ability to edit and run scripts, piping, and a lot more. I really like this idea, but it is a lot less than it first appears. Being sandboxed is a huge obstacle and the authors can’t overcome that.

LOONG AWAITED APP!

Finally! This has been missing for years, and sad on Apple's part to finally have third party developers jump in for a native shell - but it's always the third party developers who shine!

Once again, thank you! Much appreciated effort. I'm sure any lazy (real) programmer who likes carrying only their iPad would agree.
