Interarchy

10.0.7
21 September 2017

Advanced file transfer app supporting iFTP, FTP, SFTP, Webdav, S3 & more.

Overview

Note: Interarchy is no longer under development, but is still available for download.

Interarchy is an advanced file transfer app that supports FTP, SFTP, Webdav, S3 and the new, very fast iFTP. It also supports plug-in architecture for compressing files, running scripts and restarting servers

It ties in well with both Amazon and Rackspace's cloud file hosting services, allowing you to transfer and manage data in the cloud. It also boasts as being the fastest file transfer client on the Mac, transferring over 80MB/sec on a gigabit network

The Net Disks feature allows you to mount remote servers on your Mac's Desktop as if it were a local disk. This makes it easy to interact and work with remote files as if they were local

What's new in Interarchy

Version 10.0.7:

Note: Version 10 is a paid upgrade from version 9. Interarchy 9 customers can purchase a discounted upgrade to Interarchy 10.

  • Interarchy 10.0.7 is a maintenance release. In includes a workaround for a bug in macOS 10.13 that prevents clicks in the sidebar and toolbar from registering.

I've been a long time user of Interarchy (and prior to that Anarchie) and liked the older versions rather well. I have to recommend CyberDuck instead these days. Although Interarchy transfers are fast, the developer who acquired it really isn't maintaining this. The 9 update appeared to mostly a reason for the new developer to charge everyone something. The new UI is not the most intuitive, in my opinion. Cyberduck is perhaps not as polished and not as fast, but it is free and is maintained.

Got an email from the developer, since Interarchy changed to Nolobe some years ago, Interarchy is dead. In this email he now tries to sell T-shirts ..
Some 10 years ago Interarchy was great, time to move on ..

Yes, version 10 is nearly 5 years old and over a dozen bugs still exist. I'm quite happy since my move (back) to Transmit 2-1/2 years ago.

Hey, did you know that 10.0.6 is now available? It was announced 18 days ago on the @Interarchy Twitter feed. Nothing on the website. Only mentioned change is Yosemite compatibility, whatever that means. And v11 is "in the works." Uh huh.

Hi, Maybe I am not the customer targeted by this app. But I must really say that I do not understand it's purpose. It can be used as a FTP client and it claims to be fast. Well, that may be, but really : with no dual-pane presentation, it makes it difficult to transfer files. But why not if it is fast as advertised... But even that it is not. FTP transfer from my computer to the remote server are just the slowest I have compared to EVERY other FTP client I use... but of course maybe that's not the real purpose of Anarchy ? And there's one nice feature that allows you to transfer files from a remote server to another remote server. But what you ought to know is that this will first transfer the files to your hard drive (what happens if there not enough disk space ?)... and yes, that IS fast. But then it uploads form the hard drive to the remote server. And there we go again : slowest I tried. So, not for me...

I actually prefer the single pane of Interarchy; now that I use Transmit almost exclusively, I have turned off its dual-pane mode. You allude to the likely cause of the slowness of transfers when you say "it uploads form [sic] the hard drive to the remote server." I would suggest that the speed of the transfer is directly related to the speed of your hard drive. I've found Interarchy to be quite speedy in my experience.

Hi Don, Well, the single is a matter of tastes. About the speed : I really doubt that this is related to the speed of my hard drive. I am simply unable to achieve speeds over 18MB/s with Interarchy. Using the EXACT same hardware and transferring the exact same files, I have no problems achieving 32MB/s average using FileZilla or Transmit. But I got slow speeds with Forklift... What I suspect is, maybe, some kind of protocol used by Forklift and Interarchy that doesn't match the protocol implemented into my LaCie 5Big NAS. Anyways, as I often transfer HUGE files (from 10 to 50GB) as long as Interarchy hasn't solved what is an issue to me (maybe not for others) I am not going to give it another try. I insist : this might be something related to my hard/soft combination so maybe it cannot be reproduced by others and is strictly personal. So far I'll stick to my conclusion : Interarchy is not for me... ATM. Regards.

Honestly, I find it quite an insult to owners of this software that Nolobe chose to release this, and to also do so with no explanation or release notes. From what I can see so far, it appears to be the very same app posted 2 years ago, except that it has a 'retina aware' setting enabled in its plist and is signed with a Developer ID. It's not good enough, Nolobe. This release deserves no more than 0.5 stars, sorry.

@Philipwheelock Unlikely. New submissions now require application sandboxing to implemented and Activity Monitor says it isn't a sandboxed app. I have to admit that I initially wondered if this might actually be a trojan Interarchy in disguise, but the Developer ID signing checks out, so it can't be. Maybe if v11 was around the corner it would make sense, but not with complete silence and no response from Nolobe about the update. Weird. Just weird.

Why does he even bother? There's nothing on his blog about it and no email notification from him. Anyway, I just installed 10.0.4 and promptly removed it when it failed to access the keychain properly. Normally when an app is updated and accesses the keychain, the system asks for permission, always or one-time. This does not happen with 10.0.4 and so I've got to provide the password for dozens of sites. It's just easier to roll back to 10.0.2, particularly with no compelling reason (like bug fixes -- see my other comments here) to upgrade.

Perhaps all that was necessary was a relaunch of Interarchy or a reboot of the machine, but 10.0.4 does seem to be working with my Keychain now (as with any app upgrade, Keychain Access prompts for access). But I was reminded of my other frustrations with Interarchy (which I still use day-in and day-out) when I had to open version 9 just to be able to change the columns that were shown in a listing. I'm still on the lookout for a replacement, but -- sadly -- all others seem to be lacking in one way or another: - Transmit doesn't query the Keychain for existing credentials and doesn't have a single-pane view - Coda doesn't support multiple open sites and the listing font is too small for my liking - Fetch doesn't support tabs and seems permanently stuck in the '90s (when I first started using it) - ForkLift's favorites are cumbersome and its "Copy Public URL" feature is flawed - Cyberduck doesn't support tabs and it has no column view On the other hand: - Transmit is actively supported (Interarchy and -- arguably -- ForkLift are not) and it's a beautiful app - Coda has a lot of other stuff built-in -- and it, too, is made by Panic - Cyberduck recognizes that a server supports an encrypted connection and will prompt you to switch to it Yummy FTP may be a good app (I dislike the toolbar), but I'll need to look at it again on a different user account.

I was mistaken about Transmit: it does indeed have a single-pane view. And I found that after after importing my Interarchy bookmarks (I had to use Cyberduck as an intermediary, since a bug in Transmit prevents it from importing Interarchy's .plist) I was asked to allow access to each Keychain item. That pretty much wipes out my issues with Transmit and I've now upgraded (full price, of course) from version 1.

I've not used Interarchy for a week and I'm feeling pretty good. I did take another look at Yummy FTP and, some interface issues aside, it's a pretty decent app. It doesn't have tabs, though, and I don't see anything that would compel me to use it over Transmit or Cyberduck.

The app is quite good, but it is no longer supported or developed. So if you pay for this you get last years products for this years price. Find a FTP-client that is actively maintained.

Sure it was updated today...with the version that was promised like 2 years ago after a buggy 10 release that lost features from 9 which I still use even though I paid for 10. Developer had a forum in which a lot of people were reporting bugs with 10 and rather than fixing things quickly, they just removed the entire forum instead. So no wonder people were thinking the developer was gone. Not sure I even want to try 10.0.4 without seeing a changelog to see if anything has actually been done.

@Cortig - It's because 10.0.2 hasn't had an update until now, if by making your app "retina aware" and signing it with a developer id can be called an update. The developer does not respond to emails in a timely fashion and when he does, it's a curt reply saying he's working on an update. For me, that was almost a year ago. But I have to ask...what good is contacting the developer? I'm sure lot's of people have contacted the developer. What good has that done? I wanted Interarchy to work for what it advertises it works with (Amazon S3 and Rackspace) Contacting the developer did nothing for that functionality.

Exactly how much "updating" does an FTP client really need? Been using this since Anarchy, Interarchy does a fine job, still one of the fastest out there. Also like CyberDuck (free). There is always the integrated FTP in the finder (command K) if you don't need anything fancy.

"Exactly how much "updating" does an FTP client really need?" @Waveman, exactly the number needed to fix bugs and to actually, you know, create the functionality that you say your software has. But I digress..my post was over a year ago and Interarchy remains broken. I consider this abandonware at this point, which to me is kind of sad...it had potential...LOTS of potential.

If you want speed, this is the FTP client for you. In my admittedly unscientific tests. Interarchy downloaded a 1.2 GB file in twenty minutes; Transmit took 1 h 24 m to download the same file. Later it did a 1.9 GB file in 31 minutes, Transmit is still working on it.

When it works, Interarchy is fast, but it has zero support, no updates in 2 years, often crashes, and has features which simply don't work. Transmit isn't the fastest, but at least it is supported and works.

Used Transmit for a few months, which is a fine ftp client. Went back to Interarchy recently because it's quicker & more efficient for mirroring tasks. There's a script that can be installed as part of Services that will tell Interarchy to ignore or not ignore files/folders during mirroring operations. I modified the script so that the file/folder color is change to visually let me know what's being ignored. Brilliant.

@A380: No argument here. Until today, I had not configured Yummy FTP mirror operations correctly and they were taking forever. Fixed that. Agree that Yummy FTP is best overall. Just wish it had the ability to save mirrors as bookmarks like Interarchy.

Ugh. I just tried Yummy FTP. Toolbar icons are ugly and cramped and the UI text (except for the listings, which can be resized) is too small. But what killed the deal for me was its lack of tabs. I typically work with several tabs open in Interarchy and without this I won't switch to another client unless I have to. (There also seems to be a problem with public URLs, which I also use heavily.)

I originally got in on the deal to purchase Interarchy for $14.95. My decision to purchase, despite reading all the comments here, boiled down to two things, Interarchy's ability to connect to Rackspace and to try iFTP. While iFTP IS extremely fast (for servers that support it), I am unable to connect to Rackspace at all. I emailed support support (Matthew) on January 19th and I got a response back that same day asking for a log of the connection. I sent the log on January 20th and haven't heard back from them...AT ALL. I've emailed twice, once on 2/1 and again on 2/19 simply asking for a status update. No...response...at...all. While some functionality of Interarchy does work, I'm ratiing it what I am based on the OVERALL use, which sadly includes my customer "support" experience.
