Custom syntax definition, compatible with Textmate, but without bundle

Dimitri K 5 years ago in iPad • updated 5 years ago 2

I'm using several my own themes and syntax definition files with Sublime editor (all files are compatible with Textmate). Was able to install theme files on Textastic, works well. But not my syntax definition files as they should be a part of bundle.. - any reason to not accept just a syntax file as it?.. - I'm not using Textmate, but need my syntax definitions to work comfortable on iPad too. Any possible fix here? Workaround?..


Thank you!


Rgds,

-Dimitri

Annoying pop up...

Masaaki Tsukioka 5 years ago in iPad • updated 5 years ago 2

It is annoying that this app shows the pop up of Select | Select All | Paste every time moving cursor while writing code. I think those items should be in additional keys instead of showing pop up. Other things are great :)

Keyboard top row ghosting ios8

Brian Rink 3 years ago in iPad • updated 3 years ago 2
When keyboard is together then the top row expanded keys is superimposed on the top row of regular keyboard. When splitting keyboard then expanded keys do not display. 

There is also some odd behavior with keyboard color. Sometimes black and sometimes white. 

I had had installed and removed a third party keyboard in ios8. I can't test what would happen if no third party keyboard was never installed.

JavaScript Not Working in Preview

Yumeji 4 years ago in iPad • updated 4 years ago 4

While testing iOS editors like Textastic and Koder on the iPad, I noticed that the preview screens never executed my javascript (HTML and CSS were fine). Using the following code as a test:


index.html:


<html>

  <head>
      <title></title>
      <!—for iPad and Komodo—>
      <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet">
      <script src="script.js"></script>
  </head>
  <body>

        This text will be replaced by Javascript.

  </body>
</html>


script.js:


alert("alert");
document.getElementById("output").innerHTML = "test";


However, when I ran the above code in jsFiddle on the iPad or in Komodo, it seemed to work fine.

jquery not working

Joy Rabor 4 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 1
My jQuery form validation not working in textastic.  It works on a PC but when I try to run the program on my iPad through textastic app, these functionalities do not work.  All my form validation does not exist at all in this app.  I'm using HTML5, javascript, jquery.  This is a great app but is useless without being to test out my form validations on the go.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Transfer error login denied

carlos beukes 4 years ago in iPad • updated by palmpiiic 2 years ago 4

Hi -

I keep getting this error: 'Transfer error login denied'

Login details work fine in cyber duck, transmit etc on my mac so I do not believe problem is with login details.

Have tried different settings: active/passive...

I am worried that this app might not be for me. Would a refund be in order?

I'm willing to try a little more but at some point soon need to try another FTP app in the hopes it might work for me.

I heard good things about this app so I thought I'd just go straight ahead with purchasing it. I am not really knowledgable enough to use this app perhaps. I develop websites and never have problems with FTP related matters. This app has got me confused and a little disappointed.

Would be great to hear back from someone soon.

Thank you kindly,


Carl

File version history.

Dave Gillett 5 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago 1

It would sure be nice to be able to role back to a previous file, when working with a live site.  It's very amateur of me, I know, but I have multiple school sites that I manage and a full version control, github, others, would be too much.  Just hoping.

Dragan Masulovic 3 years ago in iPad • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 years ago 4
when i tap on a pdf file, a separate preview opens. i, therefore, cannot achieve "download latest" functionality for pdf's, which is a pitty.
