I do all my web development in this app

vriley

Yes, I have a Macbook Pro with all the latest web dev tools. But I always have my iPad with me, and I end up doing all my development with Textastic. It has its own local file structure so you can build the server folder and file structure locally and develop with relative links. You can store all the resources (graphics, images, scripts, stylesheets, etc.) in their proper places so the entire site can be uploaded as it exists on the device. My typical workflow starts with Graphic for graphic and image resources, Pixelmator to edit images to size, and Textastic for html, css, and Javascript as needed. iCloud files are synced automatically so I can pick up on any device, and upload to the web host directly from the iCloud directories. This is one of the essential apps that make the iPad so incredibly useful.

Really great tool for quick edits

Df245

It’s a great tool for making quick edits, but it lacks some common features that I expect to be in editors that I use on the desktop. For example, keyboard shortcuts for switching quickly between files, quick-add-next-match, etc... Now I know that those are on the Mac, and this is iOS, but I have a dream where I can do everything development-related that I want on my iPad. Those features would be a step towards making that possible and I would pay extra to have them. Thank you for the great work!

Great editor. Even greater Xcode alternative for playgrounds.

UbuntuRox104

I remember using Textastic before this newer universal app came out, and I fell in love with how amazing the app was. I’ve been using the new version for a while now, and. I am extremely impressed with just how capable this little editor is. It even opens and edits Swift Playground Books, meaning that I can safely and happily cut Xcode out of the Swift Playground book equation. Overall impressed and can’t wait to see what’s in store!
