Support for the new Files app (native integration)

andreas16700 5 months ago in General 0

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.

XML Namespaces and XSD Code Completion / Autocomplete

Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago in General • updated 5 years ago 3

Scenario

Right now I am learning XML and trying to create a schema for Balsamiq (unofficial schema for my workflow), but I have to fire up VS 2012 RTM on my laptop and I need to constantly flip between a schema that works with intellisense and one that still has issues, not to mention having a tutorial page open to learn the specs.  As I have described, you can imagine I have limited visibility of either schema, which means I need to constantly adjust the size of the window panes.  This has another problem, there is no scrolling synch (unlike Word 2007-2013), which makes it extremely difficult to spot differences.


Why do I still use this method?

Intellisense is the reason, being allowed to reference known Schemas makes my job a little easier.


Suggestion

1.  Add ability to reference Schemas, so that autocomplete works with XML and other XML related languages (XAML, YAML, XSL, XSLT, etc).

2.  Add ability to store custom Schemas and reference them with other Schemas.

3.  Implement a synchronized scrolling feature that allows users to spot differences between 2 documents (similar to the Notepad++ diff plugin or Word 2010 if you want to wait to add diff).

First of all, thank you for a great app! I have both an iPhone & an iPad versions and I'm really happy.

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

Reilly Beacom 4 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.

Compile and Run

Cameron Mitchell 4 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 3 years ago in General • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 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.

Ability to move files on an FTP server from one directory to another

Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 years ago in General • updated by 5 years ago 1

Currently, you can't move files on the server directly, but you can download files locally and then upload them to another directory. Add the ability to move files directly on the server without a download.

AirPlay Support

j 3 years ago in General 0
It would be great to see some sort of enhanced AirPlay mirroring support for Textastic iOS. Some apps have the ability to change what you see on the iOS device screen when mirroring is turned on. This would allow Textastic to take advantage of the larger (TV) screen's real estate while using the iOS device for controls/keyboard only. Maybe this could allow for multiple editing panels (ie HTML and CSS side-by-side)?
