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.


Code Minimap (syntax highlighting would be a bonus)

BenjaminDSmithy 4 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.


Please: Textastic for Windows

Konstantin A. Kolosov 8 years ago in General 0
First of all, thank you for a great app! I have both an iPhone & an iPad versions and I'm really happy. You have put so much effort and dedication into Textastic, went through all those customer's requests and implemented the best ideas to make this app as awesome as it is, and as a customer I really appreciate it.Well, can you please go one step further and let people like me who don't care much for Macs still use your great application on Windows?


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 9 years ago in General updated by anonymous 4 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?

Add php runtime to allow running php scripts locally.  I have kodiak installed on my ipad which does just that. Textastic could benefit. 

Under review

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.

Working with remote files directly

Jeff 10 months 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 :-)


React JSX Syntax Highlighting is broken

Corvec 2 years ago in General 0

Close tags in JavaScript (e.g., </span>) break syntax highlighting for the rest of the file. Self-closing tags (e.g., <span />) have the same effect. Opening tags work fine, though.
