Support encypting files individually by password

Peter Hunkeler 6 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 6 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

Compile and Run

Cameron Mitchell 7 years ago in General 0

If you could add the ability to compile and run code that would be awesome. That is the only thing holding this app back. I'm sure Apple makes this difficult if not impossible so if it isn't possible then thats okay. Love the app!

Add the possibility to change line spacing/leading

SvenB 5 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 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.

Auto save

Fiorino 3 months ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 months ago 2

Please add an option to disable auto save feature (and add a “Save” button). I work with apps like shellfish in live servers and in the meantime I add some PHP code then I get always errors until I have finished my modifications.

Mosh protocol for ssh

jsommers 7 months ago in General updated by Garry Harthill 2 months ago 2

I love the built-in ssh terminal.  One way to make it even better would be to add support for the mosh protocol which would allow long-running shells, and for shells to stay “connected” while moving between networks.  

Thanks for making such a nice app!

iOS underline for misspelled words with Auto-correction

Miguel Hernández 2 years ago in General updated 2 years ago 0

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.

Code Minimap (syntax highlighting would be a bonus)

BenjaminDSmithy 3 years ago in General 0

I would love to see a code minimap with syntax highlighting support make its way to Textastic especially for use on my iPad Pro 12.9inch 2nd-gen.


This will bring your app one step closer to desktop counterparts (Atom, Sublime, Visual Studio Code, etc.) and I’m sure will make a lot of power users who wish to stay mobile very happy :)

Open files directly over sftp with a live sftp browser. No syncing entire dirs!

Reilly Beacom 6 years ago in General 0
I don't care if a temp file is copied to my ipad as long as that is invisible to me. I just want to open a single file and see its *remote* path and save it to its remote path.

Search and search/replace history

Pedro Brandao 8 years ago in General updated by Arsastronautica 2 months ago 3

Oftentimes you want to use a previously used regular expression; other times you might have been working on a complex regular expression and want to go back working on it; or perhaps you were searching for specific phrases and the app crashed before you could find what you wanted.  For these (and doubtless other) reasons, it would be very useful to have a history on the search and search/replace text fields.

Linked folder

Lingnan Dai 8 years ago in General updated by Jose Constela 3 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.
