1. Add / Open / Init Folders via Drag and Drop
Drag a folder (or, if Tower is running, even multiple folders!) from Finder onto Tower’s dock icon to add/open/init in Tower.
2. Create Folders / Sort via Drag and Drop
In order to keep your repositories organized in Tower’s dashboard, you can create folders to group your repositories.
3. Repository Icons
Include an image file named "Icon.png/jpg/gif" in the root folder of your repo to have it shown in the Dashboard.
4. Group Branches
Group branches/tags in the sidebar: simply use "/" as a separator character in branch/tag names to get a virtual folder structure.
5. Track Branches
Use "trackings" to have default push/pull connections and the "ahead/behind" badges in Tower.
Either set up tracking when you publish a local branch or right-click on a branch and select "Add Tracking".
6. Open a Repository Folder in an External Application
Drag the folder icon in Tower’s window title bar on an external app to open the repo’s root folder in that app.
7. Reveal Files / Folders in Finder
"Reveal in Finder" (Toolbar) shows selected files (in 'Status' view) or the repo’s root folder in the Finder.
