Support for Version Control Systems (SVN, GIT etc.).

John Fowler 7 years ago • updated by Rahoul Baruah 7 months ago 178
Basic client support of checking out, updating, and committing.

For example Subversion, GIT, Mercurial.
Answer
I've created a tutorial video and a blog post about how to use Git on iOS with Textastic and Working Copy:


Open command in Textastic 5.2Working Copy fully supports GitHub, BitBucket and your own privately hosted Git servers. It has support for Git over SSH, HTTPS and HTTP. With an In-App Purchase you can unlock push functionality.

In Textastic, you can use the "Open…" command that was added in Textastic 5.2 to invoke the iOS document picker and open a file from Working Copy and edit it in place without leaving the app.

Code Completion

Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 years ago • updated 1 year ago 43
"I generally code in C, C++, Objective-C and on occasion PHP, HTML, Javascript and CSS. Code completion for the above would be great!
After using the app for a bit, I noticed that while it's really incredible to have a code editor on the go, too much typing on the ipad isn't really that great."
Answer
Textastic 4.0 will have code completion for HTML, CSS and for PHP functions.

Textastic 4.0.2 adds code completion for JavaScript.
