Rust syntax highlighting

Having at least basic rust syntax highlighting would be awesome.

Working with remote files directly

Jeff 3 years 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 :-)

Support encypting files individually by password

Peter Hunkeler 9 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 9 years ago 1
The last time this seems to have been discussed is three or more years ago. So I thought I might start a new thread.

I'm looking for a way to keep some highly sensitive information on my iPad. I'm thinking about files being encrypted by an individual password on the iPad from within Textastic. The file should be encrypted when it its closed (probably asks for an explicit "close the file now" button). The password must be entered to decrypt the file when it is opened in Textastic. Encrypted files would stay encrypted even when sent to other places (cloud, mail, dropbox, WebDav, etc.). 


Search and search/replace history

Pedro Brandao 12 years ago in General updated by Arsastronautica 4 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 9 years ago in General updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 9 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.

AirPlay Support

j 10 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)?

Full-screen editing mode

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.

Elm support (to catch up with Working Copy)

Stephen C 6 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 6 years ago in General updated by Jeremy Dillworth 5 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).
