Where is the documentation for using the textastic:// URL scheme?

Gary V. Vaughan 5 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 6

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:

Menlo included in iOS now

Steven Lu 3 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 years ago 1
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.

Support for Exporting .ZIP files in other Apps via "Open in..."

Arete Nehemiah 4 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 1

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.

Include a syntax dictionary divided into language categories.

Austin Koziol 4 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 1
That way people trying to learn a language can easily look through the in app dictionary to find forgotten syntaxes.
