Announcing PiCockpit’s File Editor App

We’re thrilled to announce our new File Editor App that allows you to create and edit files and directories remotely on your Raspberry Pi! Even more than that, with our File Editor App, you’ll be able to get assistance from our AI system: RaspiGPT.

File Editor App Overview

This app gives you full control over the file system on your Raspberry Pi from anywhere in the world, provided you have an internet connection!

Business & the File Editor App

Businesses can leverage this app to streamline file management tasks across their Raspberry Pi devices.

IT teams can remotely navigate directories and edit configurations with ease, eliminating the need for time-consuming SSH sessions or complex VPN setups.

Additionally, developers can access and modify code remotely, which can accelerate the development cycle and make collaborating on projects that much easier.

With the File Editor App, you can empower teams to work smarter and achieve goals faster.

The File Editor App’s Capabilities

The File Editor App has three sections. On the left, you will find the file tree of your Raspberry Pi. On the right is the edit window, in which you can edit your files. Below that is our RaspiGPT service, which you can use to explain, edit, and generate files.

After that, you can navigate to the app page via our web interface.
