Web preview fullscreen mode.

Smet_IOS 8 years ago in General • updated by Jarrod Oberto 7 years ago 1
I have found the web preview in Textastic to be perfect. I have discovered it will even play local mp4 files so I can create video portfolio websites that will play local HD files through HTML5 so I don't have to worry about an internet connection. The only thing that would make this even more perfect is having a full screen mode with the web preview. Then it would truly make a perfect presentation mode that will be able to play anywhere regardless of signal. Perhaps a 5 finger tap could exit fullscreen mode.

Add Shortcuts App into your App

gsward 4 months ago in General • updated by Ted Chew 2 days ago 4

Many apps support Shortcuts in Apple’s Shortcut App (e.g. Working Copy). If you were to add the actions for New File, Append File, Upload/Download File, and SSH Command I could automate my entire build process through the Shortcut App in your App.

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.

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
Peter

Add the possibility to change line spacing/leading

SvenB 4 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 4 years ago 1
The possibility to change the line spacing (e.g. in simple, one digit steps between 1.0 and 1.5) would be great for making code more readable.

Linked folder

Lingnan Dai 6 years ago in General • updated by Jose Constela 2 years 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.
