git integration

I'm a Bit Bucket user and there are a ton of Github users out there. Git integration would be awesome!


Like (S)FTP(S) support, dedicated applications usually do a better job.  SourceTree (made by the Bitbucket folks) is amazing (staging sub-file chunks is great!) and even the GitHub application is pretty spiffy.  Limited integration, like some way of seeing if a file is 'dirty', OTOH, would be a nice reminder.

(If you spend time in a terminal, you can also get some nice shell integration for watching the status of whatever repo your CWD is contained within.)

I know that this comes down to a matter of preference: some people prefer to have all their tools separated (a separate text editor, a separate compiler, a separate browser, a separate version-control app, etc.), while others prefer an integrated IDE. I belong to the IDE team, and would much rather have the git functionality built into Textastic - even if it were a 'plugin' or 'add-on' optional that I'd have to pay extra for. No problem there.

I know about Working Copy on iOS, so it's obvious that the code base already exists - and I'd love to see that integrated directly into Textastic.
