DraftCode PHP IDE

By Solesignal Limited

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


DraftCode is the offline iPad and iPhone PHP IDE with a webserver runtime that can run real WebApps (like the included WordPress or phpLiteAdmin) without requiring internet access or uploads.

Develop and run real PHP WebApps offline inside DraftCode using built in standard PHP 5.4.23, PHP extensions and a runtime that acts as your web server with full support for sessions, cookies, redirects and forms. No internet connection or uploading required.

Take developing new ideas into the creative and casual habit field of iOS, or start to learn PHP without having to interact with a server.


DraftCode's runtime does not only execute PHP. It supports everything you need to run a real PHP WebApp offline by providing the webserver environment. DraftCode fully supports sessions, cookies, redirects, working with POST and GET forms and AJAX. And of course it also runs Javascript and renders HTML and CSS.
The runtime has been tested with Web Apps as complex as WordPress, Flatpress and others.


DraftCode already includes many popular extensions like MySQL, Sqlite3, PDO, OpenSSL, libxml, zip, soap and others. And we are working on including more with each release.


DraftCode has an easy to use file/folder workspace for you to manage your files. You can import image resources from your camera roll and send your code to other iOS applications.


View your pages as they would appear on Safari. You can work on javascript/AJAX, HTML and CSS in conjunction with PHP. Alternatively view the raw html for debugging.


Edit your code in a dark or light colour scheme with adjustable font-size. Use the keyboard extensions to quickly access common code snippets and characters. Draftcode of course also supports working with an external keyboard.

What's New in Version 1.4.1

- Improved support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus
- Fixed an issue that could lead to loosing recent edits when renaming a file
- Improved hardware keyboard support

Local Webserver

I agree with the other folks, this is definitely a powerful web server for the iPad. awesome! I was searching for an app that was similar to MAMP, and this is filling my needs. I know this is geared toward PHP, but it has the potential to be some much more (e.g. full stack syntax highlighting, file management vs. defaulted php extensions). My recommendation to the developer is to expand on this foundation. Some enhanced UX, power user/work flow enhancements. more focus on managing projects. For instance, I created a new html, css, js, php project (took a little while to set everything up. A ’template’ project configuration would be so slick) and would love to render the project (like switching to the browser and hitting refresh) instead of rendering the file that you’re viewing. I have to traverse back to the index file and run that file to see my changes. thanks for the work you’ve put into this; can’t wait to see where it goes.

Great so far...only 1 day in

I am impressed with the ability to do PHP on the iPad. I got phpliteadmin by downloading and unzipped it using short PHP commands. Also brought over files from my online site the same way. Awesome! I am able to "share HTML/CSS files" built in PHP to Koder (another great app) and run on a local web server that connects to other users on my network. This might be a good way for me to have a completely offline server for my app to host static pages on my local network right from the iPad. Not sure yet how many connections it will handle. I was golfing in the Adirondacks with 30 guys for 3 day fall event and used a big laptop and printer for our tournament results -- no data coverage, old school. I am assuming Apple won't allow a dynamic language like PHP to be a web server but if they ever do this would be the app to host local dynamic pages.

Yep, this the one

Look no further. This one is pretty good. No SQL server extensions built in but WP (very nice) and MySQL/phpadminlite. Really cool!
