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 :)
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.
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.
Excellent app, by the way!!
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
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.
