Transmit

5.6.1
25 October 2019

Excellent FTP/SFTP client.

Overview

Transmit is an excellent FTP (file transfer protocol), SFTP, S3 (Amazon.com file hosting) and iDisk/WebDAV client that allows you to upload, download, and delete files over the internet. With the most Mac-like interface available, Transmit makes FTP as simple, fun, and easy as it can possibly be.

What's new in Transmit

Version 5.6.1:
New:
  • Removed support for Amazon Drive at the request of Amazon. This does not affect Amazon AWS S3, which remains fully supported
Improved:
  • Added support to quickly copy current open folder’s path to clipboard
Fixed:
  • Fixed rules predicate popup not drawing correctly
  • Resolved a crash when parsing invalid ssh config files
  • Remote Quick Look now works as expected in macOS Catalina
  • Fixed a crash when attempting to import non-existent Coda favorites
  • Resolved an issue that prevented writing very large keys to known_hosts
  • Deleting files from filtered search results no longer hangs Transmit
  • B2: Duplicate "Untitled Folder
  • no longer appears after creating a new directory and refreshing
  • Fixed Copy URL not working properly for two servers on the same remote host
  • Resolved a problem where non-transfer operations could be counted as transfers
  • Adding a remote folder to the places bar and then copying one of its children no longer transfers the entire folder
  • Fixed an issue that prevented clearing a server’s Local Path text field (Mac App Store version only)

I've using Transmit for perhaps 10 years. Version 4 is the best yet. Transmit is one of my favorite essential Mac programs. People who are complaining about the "minor" appearance changes are missing the point. What part of "up to 25X faster" don't you understand. This is huge when making big changes to a web site when you may be uploading hundreds or thousands of files. Ridiculously faster loading files to iDisk via webdav than Apple's finder implementation. The "Transmit Disk Feature" alone is worth the upgrade price. This allows your FTP location to mount as a standard folder in the finder. Drag and drop any file in the finder to this folder and - voila - it's uploaded. Transmit doesn't even need to be running. Also, any program can now read and write files via this method to the ftp site.

I'm also a long time user, so my review is more global: I've always preferred Transmit's interface and feel over the other FTP clients, but I've always also had issues while syncing "huge" folders (if you can consider 100Mb huge, nowadays...) I still haven't found another app that does it with no alert of any kind or not having connection issues, so I suspect that FTP on its own is already an issue, but I can't believe there's no cure for such things in 2019... :-/

When I see "FTP", I think of Transmit.

Having a lot of ftp connection issues with the last few versions (post 5). Have used this app since its birth so don't want to judge and re-rate just yet.. Am a Coda user as well and having much better luck using it as an ftp uploader.. what's going on Panic?
If I did not use Coda.. and if Yummy did no sport such a crappy antiquated UI.. and if ForkLift imported Transmit bookmarks (I have looooads).. I'd have moved away already.. (on top of that support is not very good, in my perception at least).

I don't really like this much. I use Transmit to connect to a local linux box in our office via sftp. If I select a remote file (e.g. a tiny text file) from the Transmit window and edit and then save it in a Mac text editor, it can take up to 30 seconds before I get the notification from transmit that the file updated at the linux box. It's definitely not a bandwidth issue on our LAN.

Having moved over from my beloved FETCH 5.77 (used since the 1990s) as Jim Matthews is still creating the 64-bit version for the modern era, there's lots to like about Transmit, except it has already crashed on me 3 times in the past hour after Purchasing a couple of copies for Work.

Still lots of v5.5 bugs for them to follow-up on within OSX 10.14.5 Mojave. I've sent Crash Reports to Panic Dev.

The changelog for the newly released version 5.5.1 lists a couple of crash fixes. Do you still get crashes with it?

Have used Transmit for many tears. Installed v5.5.0 after which it has forgotten my Amazon S3 login details and refuses to connect when I supply them.

With a different FTP program, I was having problems uploading my files. I got disconnected all the time. I then switched to Transmit, and voilà: no more disconnections! Wonderful program!

Since updating to 5.2.2, connections no longer resume after restarting the application. HUGE fail. BTW, darkening the active tab is moronic and entirely unintuitive. Put it back to the way it used to be: active tab light; inactive tabs dark!

I complained to them about this, they don't seem to get it. They should just follow Safari's lead for tabs/frame coloring. I often made mistakes in my transfers due to this retarded state of affairs.

Overpriced for what it does when you got much more with less-pricey apps like ForkLift from Binary Nights.

Great app but not worth its price, when you think you can get ALL of its features and more for less money, with apps like ForkLift or Commander One PRO.
