MDNS support for local network name resolution
First off great app, thank you for making it.
On my local network, I use mDNS to identify the machines so I don’t have to remember the IP addresses.
mDNS name resolution doesn’t seem to be supported (for ssh connections at least) in Textastic and it would be a convenient addition

Can you point me to some documentation or article on how I can configure this on my own network so I can try to reproduce this problem?
Is mDNS related to Apple's Bonjour?
Thank you for the quick reply.
Apple's Bonjour is indeed a mDNS implementation. For example if I name my macbook "Stephane's mac" (computer name field in System Preferences -> Sharing), and I run a web server on this laptop, then I can access it with Safari from my iPhone / iPad at address Stephanes-mac.local (the System Preferences -> Sharing pane provides the exact form after converting non-alpha characters).
On linux, I think the most common way is to use Avahi : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/avahi.
I took another approach, based on systemd (but configuration involves settings in several config files, I am not sure the following link is complete) : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd-resolved
