DropBox online file preview
The main reason I bought Textastic for iPhone is for presenting objc projects located in my Dropbox account.
And the only feature Textastic miss is the option to preview code from remote servers without actually downloading the files locally.
I'll really appreciate if you'll add this feature in one of the next updates.
React JSX Syntax Highlighting is broken

I'd like to see support for TypeScript and React added. What can I do to help? Can I assist writing/porting syntax definitions somehow?
please add global search function.

Check SSH host keys / server fingerprint (known_hosts)
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.
iOS underline for misspelled words with Auto-correction
The growing adoption of Textastic brings new opportunities for applications in general writing.
The auto-correction option in Textastic allows the user to use the iOS spelling suggestions above the embedded keyboard, but greater functionality can be leveraged from the iOS spelling checker.
The idea: include the red underlined mark from the iOS spelling checker into the text editor when the auto-correct option is activated (or with an additional setting).
The benefit: Textastic would significantly enhance the functionality for users of plain text, latex files, taskpaper files, among others.
Possible to add fonts with anyfont?
I am wondering whether it would be possible to use the app Anyfont to add custom fonts on iOS that Textastic could use. According to the Anyfont app description: "With AnyFont you can install additional fonts on your device which can then be used by other apps which make use of the device's font book."
Does Textastic use the device's font book?
