More About a-Shell

a-Shell Screenshot Image
a-Shell is a complete terminal emulator, allowing to run most Unix commands locally, on you iOS device. You can transfer files using scp and curl, edit them with vim and ed, process them using grep, awk and sed.

a-Shell includes Python, Lua, JavaScript, C, C++ for programming and TeX (texlive 2019, including LuaTeX) for text processing.

There are also multiple network utilities: nslookup, ping, whois, ifconfig...

a-shell uses iOS 13 “multiple windows” ability, so you can run multiple shells at the same time, with different commands, in different directories. You can edit a file in one window with vim and process it in the other with python.

Depending on your point of view, a-Shell is either the first shell on iOS with Vim included, or the first Vim on iOS with the ability to launch jobs.

What's New in a-Shell 1.13.0 >

Although a-Shell is designed first to allow you to run commands locally on your phone, it also has the "ssh" command to let you connect to other computers.

Version 1.13 focuses on improvements for ssh:

- added the "ssh -J" option to connect through jump hosts.

- added "ssh-copy-id" command.

- added "ssh-agent" and "ssh-add" commands.

- upgraded the version of OpenSSL (1.1.1w) and libssh2 (1.11.0) for compatibility with other platforms.

Version also adds the "isForeground" command, to run specific actions only if the app is in the foreground, and fixes a bug with Jupyter commands.
