Snipplr support!  

And what will iOS allow in terms of BT keyboard shortcuts?
(ANY shortcuts would be great of course!!) 

Feature-for-feature mirror of all the goodies in FTPOnTheGo!!

Create a ui for Textastic keyboards to be able to input tokens and constructs. I did purchase text expander - but given that the iPad has dynamic input capabilities, using text expansion is kind of lame.

I haven't looked I to what's possible- but I'd like something like: have Textastic parse a source tree and present it as an input device (keyboard) as a column browser - potentially something like that.

The 2.0 release is outstanding. It came out 2 days after I purchased Textastic and I am very pleased.

In CoffeeScript all `new` keywords show up in the Symbols list - which is not ideal (at least, not for me). Also, the intending of symbols is almost too subtle. Would love it if we could turn off some keywords (or at least the `new` keyword). Also, would love if the indent was wider (or customizable). Furthermore, if possible, it'd be cool if items in symbols list could have a toggle arrow (show/hide children) to make things more compact.

Over all, awesome app!

FTP and FTPS connections have an option to Hide/Show hidden files. Would love this to be implemented for SFTP(SSH) connections as well. 

UNIX systems that I use SFTP/SSH with denote a hidden file simply with a . at the start of the filename ( .bash_profile, .ssh, .svn, etc. ).

Would love to hide these files (and almost more importantly, ignore them when downloading a directory containing them). Be sure to make this a toggle though, as I occasionally do want to edit these hidden files.

Thanks for the amazing app!
Textastic uses libcurl for FTP and SFTP file transfers.  Unfortunately, the error messages of libcurl are not localized. But, while it would be nice if they were also available in German, I don't think it's really that important.
