    Mist is really a promising product. I have been enjoying poking around it until I needed to find and replace a dozen of links in css and html. And that's where I came to halt. I think I could live with the shortcomings of Mist if I could do heavy-lifting in my other tools and just push it back to the repository. All is missing is external access (Gitolite?) and ability to pull changes from the repository. 
    An alternative would be to allow clone existing git repository when a project is started, much like Graphite is doing.
    My two cents.

    Hi Sergei,

    Thanks for trying Icenium Mist and for the feedback you provide.

    Integration with external git repository hosts for Mist is cooked as we speak.
    We might not be ready with everything that Graphite provides for our next release, in this direction, but the bare minimum that we expect to provide is cloning a remote repository.

    It will be great if you can share at least the big shortcomings that you have stumbled upon using Mist (apart from remote git operations).

    Two biggest drawbacks: 

    1. The lack of standard editor functions (I mentioned Find and Replace in my original post). This effectively means that anything bigger that a test or mockup is hard to work with.
    2. I wish I could use more plugins. QR code scanner, Bluetooth, Push integration to name a few. These exist for Phonegap, and I would think should work with your product since both a based of Apache Cordova.

    Just to improve the overall tone of the thread:

    I live the ease of test deployment to iOS and Android. I tried both and it worked really nice. I also find that the pricing you have is reasonable and something I wouldn't be opposed to pay.

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for the feedback.

    My answers are inline:

    1. The lack of standard editor functions (I mentioned Find and Replace in my original post). This effectively means that anything bigger that a test or mockup is hard to work with.
     - We are currently working on Find in document story and will definitely continue with Replace in document and Find/Replace in solution/workspace. I can't commit on time-frame, but I want to let you know that these will be implemented.

    2. I wish I could use more plugins. QR code scanner, Bluetooth, Push integration to name a few. These exist for Phonegap, and I would think should work with your product since both a based of Apache Cordova.
     - Plugins will be added on demand to Icenium. We want to see what the order of adding them will be, so our main criteria is our feedback portal. Please, try searching for requests for the plugins that you want to be included and if you find such, please vote for them, and if not add them as new feature requests.
