Don't hesitate to tell me the features you want to see in the next version!
- Sometimes the folder hierarchy from the last session was not restored properly on app launch.
- When uploading a hierarchy of folders from an external directory (for example opened from Working Copy) to a remote server, only files in the top-level directory where correctly linked to the remote connection.
- The keyboard shortcut Ctrl-W did not work in terminal connections.

I do all my web development in this app
Wow! Now with SSH terminal emulator!!
What a fantastic update! Textastic already blew my socks off long ago, and I honestly couldn’t have asked for more. But with the ability to get to a command window on hosts in the same app is really a dream come true. No more editing, switching over to another app to restart a service or check a log file, then switching back to edit, only to find when I need to get back to the console, the other app has disconnected.
The SSH shell is rock solid too. When I saw the feature in the update notes, honestly, I didn’t expect much. My experience with iOS terminal emulators in general has been so-so. This one beats them all hands down! Granted I haven’t put it to hard use yet, but so far, it’s by far my favorite.
Fantastic job! Thanks so much!
Great editor. Even greater Xcode alternative for playgrounds.
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!
