Default Yummy FTP/SFTP for Mac OS X

Yummy appears to be a step up from Fetch — better interface, more customizable. (I have not tried it yet, so cannot say how well it works in real life, but it looks good.)

Among its features: synchronization; remote editing; AppleScriptable; customizable toolbars, file views, and skin; preview; transcript (direct interaction with the server); FTP aliases; and more.

Costs $25 for a single-user license, with discounts for 3 or more. Downloadable 15-day tryout available from Yummy Software.

Thanks. I've downloaded it, and will give it a try tonight. It seems to me, looking at the list of features, that it is more of a site management tool than Fetchis.

It does look that way. I will look forward to hearing what you think after you test it out.

You guys do know that ftp is embedded in the Finder these days, yes?

Just "Connect to Server..." (Cmd-K?) then ftp://...

Don't have a Mac to check my work so YMMV,

The Finder implementation under OS X is read only.

Speaking of pushing.

Why aren't more folks using SCMs (e.g., Subversion) for creating masterspaces for web sites. Then the web-host just syncs to whatever snap seems appropriate for that box. Seems a much better mechanism that hand managing files (even for small or single-host systems).

Just thinking out loud,
JR

PS - Your ad system fit into this realm too, no?

Hmmm. Actually, no, don’t think I do. Rely on good old Fetch for the most part. (And BBEdit will write to the server — although I am prone to confusion, so usually save the file somewhere and then FTP it with Fetch.)

If I knew what you were talking about I could answer your PS. But I don't so I can't.

SCMs? Subversion? Appropriate snap? I just want to be able to track our ads through the production workflow...
