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 :)
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.
On iOS 13 you can no longer select external folders in the standard
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
Now that Working Copy has built-in Elm syntax highlighting, I’ve stopped using Textastic. The instructions for installing external syntax highlighting is weak (including in the PDF). Even if we could just point to a Github repository for a .tmbundle, it seems that the Elm versions assume elm-format to be installed, which makes them incompatible with Textastic on iPad and iPhone.
a lot of file extensions are not associated or having the option to open them with textastic app using Files/iCloud/OneDrive/etc..
Please add the ability to edit any text based file extension from there.
