I was just wondering what is the best way to load J Query onto websites I am working on in Textastic. I have heard that a specific file is needed to compensate for lack of mouse when coding on an iPad or iPhone. Otherwise I think that the app is brilliant.
Because the script closing tag in the string is interpreted , it will close the script tag early, and break the rest of the code as well as writing it all over the document. This can quite easily be countered by escaping the closing tag with a backslash, but that is inconvenient when dealing with large inline scripts.
When device rotation occurs, the page position changes due to many lines becoming wrapped (or unwrapped). This in itself isn't a horrible problem, but what tends to happen is this:
I am at line 5500, the file is 6200 lines.
I rotate to portrait. It pegs me at the bottom of the file. This clamps the y-offset.
Now I rotate back to portrait in hopes of returning to line 5500. I am dropped off around line 4000.
This is... not... ideal.
One great way to fix BOTH issues is to check the line# and return me to that position upon device rotation.
Note also that having a cursor present will prevent this issue (which is probably why this has not been reported yet). However having a cursor makes over 1/3 of the screen consumed by a keyboard so I *ensure* the keyboard is put away when I use Textastic to read code (as it's hardly practical to do actual coding), but it causes this issue every time (when i am near the bottom of a file).
So since I am JB'd i would use tweaks that let me force specific apps to be portrait-locked, but it's just not ideal because sometimes I do need to go landscape when the line wrapping gets to be overwhelming.

Using the latest version of Textastic for iPhone or iPad, the "recent files" list does not work for files from OneDrive.
Here is what I do:
- Open.. and find a file on onedrive - the file opens fine
- Go back to the menu and click on "Recent Files"
- select the file I just opened
- get an error "The file couldn't be opened".
If I go via the Open... link again and find the same file, I can open it again no problem.
I do find then that it now appears twice in the "Recent Files" menu - from the first attempt and now the second attempt, and neither of them work,
