Muon SSH Terminal/SFTP client


Muon (previously known as Snowflake) is a graphical SFTP client and terminal emulator with helpful utilities.

It provide an enhanced SFTP file browser, SSH terminal emulator, remote resource/process manager, server disk space analyzer, remote text editor, remote log viewer, and other helpful tools.

The application is targeted mainly towards web/backend developers who often deploy/debug their code on remote servers and not overly fond of complex terminal based commands. It may also help sysadmins who manage multiple remote servers manually.

Features include:

  • Simple graphical interface for common file operations – common activities like moving files on server, renaming, cut, copy, paste, archiving, executing scripts, checking free space, calculating directory size, changing permissions, in a simple and efficient way.
  • Built in text editor with syntax highlighting and support for sudo – can invoke sudo and prompt for passwords as needed.
  • View and search huge log/text files in a very efficient manner. The log viewer presents a paginated view of the file, which loads in much less time.
  • Fast powerful file and content search, powered by find command – find files by name, type, modification date and can also look inside compressed archives.
  • Built in terminal and command snippet – all command line operations can be performed.
  • Fully equipped task manager – monitor resource usage (CPU, RAM, swap) and view/manage processes from a familiar GUI. It’s equipped with search and kill process functionality, and also with a option to kill processes with sudo.
  • Built in graphical disk space analyzer – find out what is consuming disk space.
  • Linux specific tools – such as getting information about the system and distro, starting and stopping systemd services and finding which process is listening on which port.
  • Manage SSH keys easily – simple and handy UI for creating and managing local and remote SSH keys. It also supports managing authorized keys from GUI.
  • Network tools – graphical interface for ping, port checking, traceroute, and DNS lookup.
