Cooper

Remote file editing

Edit files on your linux machine, even when you're on the go.

Cooper provides a touch interface for SSH, making it easy to log in to a servers and edit files. Make simple code/configuration changes without squinting at a tiny terminal and using a special keyboard.

Cooper does:

  • Allow password based login to SSH servers
  • Let you traverse the directory structure on SSH servers
  • Let you open and edit files on SSH servers
  • Save a list of your SSH servers (for easy access)

This app is being developed to make remote software/web-app development easier, so future improvements will include tablet optimized layouts, a touch optimized command execution interface (menu based with support for custom commands), and a mechanism for jumping between open files.

Cooper does not:

  • Allow command execution
  • Provide root/sudo support
  • Save your SSH password
  • Support non-standard SSH ports

Status: Beta.
