Description (last modified by drsassafras)

Just thinking outloud here, I dont know if this is posable, or practice to implement, but here it goes:

I would be nice to see a True SSH connection support for Cyberduck. It would allow cyberduck to issue commands just like in terminal. This could include deleting of entire subdirectories in a split second.

I can also see a possibility of a real command prompt being available. So terminal commands are issued when a user action is performed in the GUI and vice versa; a UI action is generated when a command is given in the "terminal". Like changing the directory view when "cd" is typed.

As a web developer, Im often split between the decision of opening up terminal vs cyberduck. I have to think to myself about what kind of limitations cyberduck has, and if what I'm doing is best suited to a drag and drop gui, if I am doing something that goes beyond the limitations or is cumbersome in cyberduck.

I love to use a gui like cyberduck for moving a few files around, or checking on backup files. Most other tasks I tend to favour in terminal.

It would really make my day, if I could always open cyperduck, and know i can delete a large subdirectory in a split second through a gui, but could also "cd .." through directories and then compile some software and then move a bunch of files between servers with a drag and drop...

Anyhow, I guess I'm combining several feature requests here.

  1. Connect directly to SSH in order to eliminate limitations os SFTP.
  2. Provide a command prompt that the GUI responds to.
  3. Provide integrated functionality of the duck CLI

Thanks for listening.
