Compile and Run

Cameron Mitchell 6 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.

Linked folder

Lingnan Dai 7 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 7 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 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 5 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 5 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.

iOS 13: Unable to select a folder using “Open File or Folder”

George Bougakov 5 months ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 months ago 13

On iOS 13 you can no longer select external folders in the standard  UIDocumentPickerViewController

My proposed fix

1. Separate the “Open file or folder” button into an “Open file” button and “Open folder” button

2. Do not do anything with the “Open file” button. Everything works fine already.

3. When user taps “Open folder” button, present a document picker initialized with 

UIDocumentPickerViewController(documentTypes: [kUTTypeFolder as String],
                                   in: .open)

BTW, there’s actually a tutorial from Apple about providing access to directories here

Code Minimap (syntax highlighting would be a bonus)

BenjaminDSmithy 2 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 :)
