Transmit

5.6.0
13 September 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.

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.

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.

Current full fledged file managers have pretty much all integrated FTP and support for multiple file protocols (icloud etc). This is a natural evolution; to the everyday user, the protocol should be transparent, from user's perspective it's all about moving files back and forth, whatever the source/destination, transport medium or protocol. Users think less in terms of local versus remote these days. Transmit have a hard time justifying cost; when the file management capabilities are not on par with likes of Forklift, Pathfinder etc, especially the dual pane UI. I know the 5 version improved greatly, but IMO, the file management aspect is still lagging behind. Forklift is only $29 and also supports SFTP, FTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Backblaze B2, Google Drive, Rackspace CloudFiles, SMB, AFP, and NFS

I wish they would do rsync! I can't believe how many other proprietary protocols they have added without doing good old rsync! I ended up writing my own GUI for rsync, but then of course everyone tells me I should add support for FTP & S3 etc etc.! Gotta lol. Surely it would be easy for Panic to add support for rsync :)

what are you talking? rsync is not a protocol. you can ssh to your servers and rsync for free. that is all built-in ready installed already on macos. there are also a lot of free rsync gui apps if you need them. transmit is not a backup application, if you need that, there are plenty of options to find on MU.

With FTP increasingly being dropped - you can't even connect to Mozilla's internal servers any more - I'm afraid this once very useful application is going to be marginalized to personal ftp servers. Sad. But, security is paramount, I guess.

I was curious about that myself, actually. When I bought transmit several years ago, i had my own servers to use it with, and I often times used it to get stuff From the FreeBSD, and other projects such as eggdrop, Linux etc. Now it seems like many things are either going to website downloads, or they are gone completely. I do know Transmit supports other protocols besides FTP though, so what percentage of people who buy / use it now, use it for other protocols other then FTP ?

According to their website, "Transmit now connects to 11 new cloud services, like Backblaze B2, Box, Google Drive, DreamObjects, Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, and Rackspace Cloud Files. And yes, Transmit still handles the classics — FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, and S3"
