Fugu: A nice graphical front-end to sftp and more...
Authored by: repetty on Feb 09, '04 12:06:41PM

Sorry, without a date column in the file listings this application is not merely unworthy of recommendation, it's downright dangerous.

It's way, way, way too easy to accidentally nuke an incorrect version of a file, whether you mean to backload a new version of a file or revert to an older one.

Also, I wrote to the development team using an email address on their web site and they didn't write back. Hey, developers, don't publish your email address if you aren't going to do your customers the courtesy of a response.

The best secure file transfer app out right now is MacSFTP. The best free secure file transfer app is CyberDuck <>

Just for your information, they replied to me within 24 hours. And btw, if you go to 'View', 'Columns' and enable 'Date Modified' you'll get a column with the date.

Sorry, but when I had an issue with it (it quit in Panther on launch), an email with the text from the crash log, and they responded with a new build (I believe...) within the day.

...because you didn't know what you were talking about.

Fugu displays the dates on all directories and files just fine.

Also, all of the Research Systems UNIX Group is extremely responsive to email, active on lists, and very accessible.

Ah, but there must be something to this, because I just connected to a machine in the next room with FUGU, to move a certain folder I knew was there. It's the newest, so it should sort to either the bottom or top of a list, depending on what I choose.

Dates are displaying, but not properly. The folder I need is listed without the year, just the month and day, and that means it gets sorted in the midst of all other months of this year, but ... not in chronological order. Not alphabetical, either. Fugu sorts files from last December, then last October; after those appear my folder from this February, and, after that, a number of files that are listed with month, day AND year. All files except the February ones are from 2003 or earlier. This happens when I choose to sort "date descending" by clicking the Date column head in Fugu.

Yes, there seems to be a small bug

There is a small bug in Fugo but it is not as bad as you think. Fugo displayes the year, month and day if the date is older than one year, otherwise month, day and time, which kind of makes sense.
But if you sort by date, all files/folders older than one year are sorted in descending order, the younger files/folders in ascending order (or vice versa depending on which way your triangle is facing). That is slightly confusing, and it results in the newest files being always shown in the MIDDLE of the list at the boundary between the more-than-one-year-old-files/folders and the younger ones.
