In order to achieve this, we would appreciate any and all feedback on challenges encountered when using Textastic.
Please also have a look at the manual.
Be sure to vote for the features you want to see implemented!
Currently, you can't move files on the server directly, but you can download files locally and then upload them to another directory. Add the ability to move files directly on the server without a download.
Maybe a "to top", "to bottom" feature can be helpful too to work with long texts.
For security, Textastic could cache opened files in local storage.
While browsing in FTP server, tapping in a single button right in the file name would open it for instant edit. So, user would make any changes and then, tapping in "Save" button, that opened file would be instantly uploaded, without confirmations, easily and faster.
That feature are present in many SDKs and similar softwares like Coda (i use that one), and I really wish Textastic could have this feature soon!
Your app is amazing, Alexander!
Just started using textastic and it really is a great app, with well thought out and beautifully implemented features. The one thing it is missing which makes it unsuitable for anything other than small projects or minor edits is the inability to define and then use macros by recording a sequence of keystrokes/searches/etc and then allowing these to be repeated by selecting the macro. Even the ability to define a single macro quickly in this way can help speed things up, and the ability to save a few can transform the editing experience.
The editor interface is great, but file creation flow for the remote server is too slow. We need to first create a file locally, then edit it, then upload manually onto the server. Why don't just support *Link* for folders? When I download a folder from a server, it should be linked to the remote server and any new files I add into the folder should just be automatically uploaded into the same folder in the server.
