Not a bug

My sample has 3 files: index.html, screen.css, and screen.js in the same directory. The preview shows my styled html but the javascript will not run. Checking firebug lite script>inspect screen.js shows in the dropdown but the script window says "Access to restricted URI denied". The javascript code runs when I export it using Dropbox elsewhere so I know it is accessible and working.

It would be really cool if textastic doubled as an interactive python interpreter with a command line function and everything. Since python doesnt need compilation i believe it is possible. Thanks!

I'd like to edit my pythonista source files in Textastic, but I can't find the specification for the URL scheme.


If it's not there already, any plans for http://x-callback-url.com/ support?  I'd love to send files to Textastic for editing, and then have them sent back to Pythonista afterwards...

Answer

Here's the documentation for the x-callback-url actions that will be supported in Textastic 4.4:

I would see Lasso 9 in the list of supported languages. In LassoSoft website, you can find language reference. Thank you Alexander, great app!

I am a big fan of this font on OS X and since iOS includes it now, it should be just as easy to add to Textastic as Courier.

It would be very, very comfortable to transfer connections-settings from one portable device to another!

Under "text expander" toggle in settings there is a localization bug. "Third-party app in Russian is "стороннее приложение", not "третья часть приложения"

I often make backups by zipping up all of my files. I would then like to open that file in some other program, e.g., GoodReader.

That way people trying to learn a language can easily look through the in app dictionary to find forgotten syntaxes.
