Check SSH host keys / server fingerprint (known_hosts)

Alexander Blach (Developer) 6 years ago in General • updated 6 years ago 2

To detect man-in-the-middle attacks SSH clients are supposed to check the host key of the server, for example by comparing it with a known good key. Should the client neglect to check the server key (or an attacker manage to steal the private key of the server) the connection becomes vulnerable to active man-in-the-middle attacks when using password-based authentication.


Add host key checking to Textastic.

Having at least basic rust syntax highlighting would be awesome.

Support for the new Files app (native integration)

The new Files app in iOS is the all-in-one place for file managers and it’d make it really easy to transfer files.

Support encypting files individually by password

Peter Hunkeler 4 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 1
The last time this seems to have been discussed is three or more years ago. So I thought I might start a new thread.

I'm looking for a way to keep some highly sensitive information on my iPad. I'm thinking about files being encrypted by an individual password on the iPad from within Textastic. The file should be encrypted when it its closed (probably asks for an explicit "close the file now" button). The password must be entered to decrypt the file when it is opened in Textastic. Encrypted files would stay encrypted even when sent to other places (cloud, mail, dropbox, WebDav, etc.). 

Thanks

Linked folder

Lingnan Dai 6 years ago in General • updated by Jose Constela 1 year ago 3

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.

How about adding a php runtime just like kodiak?

Phpmavern 6 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 6 years ago 1

Add php runtime to allow running php scripts locally.  I have kodiak installed on my ipad which does just that. Textastic could benefit.

Full-screen editing mode

Maury Hill 4 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 3
Would like a full screen editing mode which would be useful on the 6+. I would like all menu bars hidden top and bottom. Sort of what Safari does when browsing.

Walid 1 year ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 12 months ago 6

a lot of file extensions are not associated or having the option to open them with textastic app using Files/iCloud/OneDrive/etc..

add asciidoc in the languages.

Textastic can support asciidoc following the Textmate extension but it is not in the list of supported language, please add it.
