THE LONG VERSION:
Coda for iOS is a text editor, with syntax highlighting, clips, find replace, the works. But it also has a full file manager, allowing you to work with files locally or remotely. It has a cool keyboard with context keys and an amazing super loupe to set your cursor. It manages 'sites' so you can quickly get to work, and it'll even sync those sites. It'll preview your pages, of course. And we've also thrown in a full-featured SSH terminal. It's an incredible app.
SITES. The foundation of Coda iOS: create a site for each of your projects, local or remote, and quickly get to the files you need to edit. Better still, use our free Panic Sync service to sync these sites with Coda Mac and Transmit iOS, securely and quickly.
FILES. We've been building file managers for a really long time — we've got this. Local, remote, or any mix of the two. Edit, rename, duplicate, create folders, upload, download, you name it, you got it.
EDITING. Tap a file to land in our highly-optimized text editor, which syntax highlights your code with ease. Now, try this: move the insertion point. Whoa. That's the Super Loupe, magnifying magic we think is the best way to precisely set your cursor. And only Coda iOS has it.
CLIPS. Have a handful of code bits you re-use a lot? Tap the clips icon in Coda iOS, and load them in. Now you can insert them with a single tap.
FIND / REPLACE. Let’s say you accidentally inverted the values of your width and height tags. With our find and replace banner — and its breakthrough wildcard button — you can easily replace or swap or re-arrange your text.
TERMINAL. Really? Like, a full-featured SSH client built-in? Sure! Not only is it great value for your money, but it's also great help to getting your work done. Connect to your sites with a tap, and get the full-featured spot-on emulation of Prompt.
TABS. Quickly switch between your open documents. I know, it's obvious. But still.
CONTEXT KEYS. We've added a special section to your iOS keyboard that gives you the most useful, helpful special characters, automatically. It takes a lot of the pain out of writing code on a piece of glass.
AIR PREVIEW. A really special thing. Paired with Coda 2 for Mac, Coda iOS can act as a dedicated "preview screen", showing you a preview of what you're coding on the desktop — as you code. It's a great use for an iPad that's just sitting around, being lonely.
We've put a desktop-class amount of work into Coda iOS. It's truly a pro app. But, it's not hard to learn. And most amazingly, you're getting an incredible amount of power at a killer price. Buy it today!
What's New in Version 2.1.3
(Hey, your favorite editor was officially named a BEST OF 2015 app by Apple! Thanks, Apple! Feels real good!)
New in 2.1.3:
• Trailing whitespace and final newline options are now supported for EditorConfig
• Line numbers no longer shift out of place when a document is scrolled
• You can now use custom syntax modes to make files associated with other apps editable in Coda
• The Find/Replace toolbar is now dismissed when closing a document
• "Take Photo" and "Take Video" now perform more reliably
iPad Pro + Logitech Create keyboard + Coda = unbelievably useful development and sysadmin tool.
The built in terminal and ftp client make this app one of my most productive.
Crashing on latest iOS...
This has the potential to be an amazing app, I find it especially useful to AirPreview across all Mac devices.
Sadly I am finding that Coda is continually freezing whilst typing code. A keypad letter becomes 'stuck' and the app tends to crash. I'm currently using 2x iPad Air 2s on the latest iOS and it happens on both. It's happening frequently and renders the App unusable in the most part.
I'd happily change this review to 5 stars if the crashing issue can be fixed.
This has the potential to be a fantastic app, its just such a shame that it crashes all of the time! The keyboard freezes constantly, meaning you can type approximately two lines of code between restarting the app. Meaning you just don't use it! For the price its not great!!
An app shouldn't crash, testing should find these issues and solve them before release. Basic testing at that...
It would also be nice to be able to link to Github repositories and push and pull code so it can be source controlled.
