Search and search/replace history

Pedro Brandao 10 years ago in General updated by Arsastronautica 2 years 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.

Add the possibility to change line spacing/leading

SvenB 7 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 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.

Working with remote files directly

Jeff 1 year ago in General 0


Since there is already the option to sync remote files to a local device, is it possible to add the option to ssh into a remote folder and edit those files directly?

It would be awesome if the current SSH options stay they way they are, so you can run shell commands on the server, but in addition to be able to edit files without having to sync them first.

Thanks :-)


Elm support (to catch up with Working Copy)

Stephen C 4 years ago in General 0

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.

.vue file syntax highlight

Aleksandr 4 years ago in General updated by Jeremy Dillworth 3 years ago 3

Is it possible to get a syntax hightlight in `.vue` files? 

A typical vuejs component file consist of:

<template></template> // html goes here

<script>export default{} </script> // javascript goes here

<style></style> // CSS goes here.

Is this possible? Every .vue file must have at least <style> tag. (Although for such a simple file we can just use html highlight). 


Code Minimap (syntax highlighting would be a bonus)

BenjaminDSmithy 5 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 :)


Edit multiple section of a document simultaneously

Have the ability to select multiple parts of the document and edit it at the same time. Similar to a feature sublime text editor has.


AirPlay Support

j 8 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)?

Please add Julia to the list of supported languages

Lots of users - this would be very much appreciated!
Excellent app, by the way!!

Linked folder

Lingnan Dai 10 years ago in General updated by anonymous 5 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.
