It would be awesome to be able to view the source code when viewing and testing pages, so that dynamically generated code can be debugged.

Importing a .jpg using "Open In" causes a rename to .jpeg – This is sort of ‘uncool’. Would be nice to see that the file suffix doesn't change. So far, great app!

you don't really have unrestricted web access so why leave it like that

Thanks

Answer

You can enter arbitrary URLs when you open the preview screen and switch from Local to Remote, so this is necessary.

Currently when making a change and immediately selecting upload file, the most recent edits are not sent to the server.  After leaving textastic and coming back, a second upload sends the changes.

Would it possible to include a Javascript REPL? That would be handy! The app jsany https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jsany-javascript-anywhere/id363452277?mt=8/ includes a viever and JS editor. So I think it technically can be done.

I just got Textastic and I like it quite a bit.  I currently have my connections working using WebDAV, but I'd prefer to switch to SFTP (SSH).  I'm using Bitvise SSH Server 5.57 and the problem is that I'm unable to overwrite existing files using Textastic. 

It asks for overwrite confirmation and then returns "Error in the SSH layer."  The strange thing is that this exact process (Download a file, upload the same file again to overwrite) works fine with Goodreader SFTP using the same login information.  My SSH server logs don't indicate any error, they just are missing the actual file transfer.  On the Textastic side, if I enable logging then here is the relevant section:

== Info: Connection #0 to host xxxx.xxx left intact
== Info: Re-using existing connection! (#0) with host xxxx.xxx
== Info: Connected to xxxx.xxx (xx.xx.xx.xx) port 22 (#0)
== Info: Could not seek stream
== Info: Connection #0 to host xxxx.xxx left intact
== Info: FTP: command REST failed
== Info: Re-using existing connection! (#0) with host xxxx.xxx
== Info: Connected to xxxx.xxx (xx.xx.xx.xx) port 22 (#0)
== Info: Creating directory '/d'
== Info: Creating directory '/d/Downloads'
== Info: Creating the dir/file failed: Operation failed
== Info: Connection #0 to host xxxx.xxx left intact
== Info: Error in the SSH layer
== Info: Re-using existing connection! (#0) with host xxxx.xxx
== Info: Connected to xxxx.xxx (xx.xx.xx.xx) port 22 (#0)


Please help; I'd much rather use SFTP to access my server.

Is there any way to add a folder to iTunes?  It would be great if I can actually add a folder not just a file so I do not have to go move a file into its place again. Please kindly give me a suggestion. Thank you very much.

It would be nice to have Textastic display the precise byte count of the file (under File Information) - not just the file size in KB.

Thank you!
