Gradual Epiphany

SSH Assistant for OS X

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on rewriting (for the most part) SSH Assistant. The last version, 0.8.1 has a variety of issues with the installer and functionality. I really hate it when one has to run an installer with root access to install something that really doesn’t need root access. So, I’ve gone back and redesigned the app to be more amenable to a “normal” user install. I’ve yet to upload a build, but you can grab the source from my personal repo. I’m hoping to cut a 1.0.x release sometime in the next week or so.

When you build the new SSH Assistant, the output is a single pref pane bundle. Install that bundle by double-clicking on it. Then go into the pref pane and click the “enable” checkbox. You may have to logout so that it can setup your environment.plist properly, but that’s the extent of the install process.
