Currently functionality is available for TextMate Bundles, but would it be possible to allow for Sublime Text Snippets as they are much easier to create than tmSnippet files (no need for UUID).

Thank you!

It would be cool, if you could customize the view of the WebDAV Server, maybe you could enable a file upload through firefox.
Or it would be cool if you could set your default page (at so this is not only the WebDAV to view the other files. This way you could present your own website to any Mac or PC directly without being able to view your files and documents stored in textastic

If there are no symbols found either the button should be disabled (or not visible) or it should be bagded with a zero.

I would prefere the invisibility, because I don't like buttons that don't do anything.

The only thing missing that I would find really useful is a way to add and use your own custom snippets.

For instance, and this is only a very simple example, when writing an html file, it would be good to select a snippet that sets all the basic stuff up for you rather than having to type it all out from scratch every time you write html. Something like this:

I'm sure developers coding in other languages would find this useful too.

After recent update that made Textastic iOS 6 compatible, the code completion is broken for every syntax definition.

I have problems with my company not letting my iPad on the same network as my desktop and laptop. Therefore, I can't use WebDAV, FTP, or anything like that. Instead of having to plug in by USB to iTunes, it would be great if I could transfer files over Bluetooth!
