Would be great to have feature that show a dropdown list of already used variable when typing a new varaible for example in php

I have this code 

$foo = "test1";

$bar = "test2";

And when i type echo $ it lists foo and bar


An SSH server which uses the Google two-factor PAM module asks for the verification code before password.

I'm using Textastic both on my iPad and iPhone and its amazing!
The main reason I bought Textastic for iPhone is for presenting objc projects located in my Dropbox account.
And the only feature Textastic miss is the option to preview code from remote servers without actually downloading the files locally.

I'll really appreciate if you'll add this feature in one of the next updates.

To detect man-in-the-middle attacks SSH clients are supposed to check the host key of the server, for example by comparing it with a known good key. Should the client neglect to check the server key (or an attacker manage to steal the private key of the server) the connection becomes vulnerable to active man-in-the-middle attacks when using password-based authentication.

Add host key checking to Textastic.

It would be great to integrate with JSHint or JSLint for JS files so we can see syntax and other issues right in the editor. There are also linters for PHP, HTML, CSS, and others out there. Any chance?

I have found the web preview in Textastic to be perfect. I have discovered it will even play local mp4 files so I can create video portfolio websites that will play local HD files through HTML5 so I don't have to worry about an internet connection. The only thing that would make this even more perfect is having a full screen mode with the web preview. Then it would truly make a perfect presentation mode that will be able to play anywhere regardless of signal. Perhaps a 5 finger tap could exit fullscreen mode.
