Add Responsive design mode to built in preview

Jaime Ledesma 8 months ago in iPad 0

Would be nice to add, to the built-in preview, a responsive design mode for mobile phones with the ability to scale the view port by dragging the corners.


Keep Server Running

keep the local server running until the page is closed or another page is opened.
Tired of seeing  “Safari cannot open the page because be use it could not connect to the server” 500 times a day.

PLEASE Add an option to automatically clear the search box when opening it. Having to constantly clear the prior search query EVERY time is a real drag!

Sorry if this has been answered a million times before but I just recently started coding on an iPad instead of a computer and I decided to get this app. It says it has an ssh but I can only get to file transfers. How can I get the terminal open to run my programs, or can this not do that? Thanks :)

drag and drop ios 11

douglas 3 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 2 years ago 1

I'm just wondering if I'm doing something wrong?  Should I be able to drag a .js file from the ios11 files app into textastic?  Is this integration planned but not here yet?  thanks!

Quick open a file

Rahoul Baruah 4 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 3 years ago 10

If I open a git repo via Working Copy (or maybe in the future if I mount an SFTP folder - maybe via Transmit?) - is there any chance of something similar to TextMate/Sublime/Atom's Cmd-T function (or the Ctrl-P plugin in Vim)?

So I can type in part of a filename and it locates all matches within that directory and I can pick the one I want. As I do a lot of Rails work I often have to jump between different files in different parts of the tree - so being able to search aviecustinde which then matches to app/views/customers/index.html.erb is a massive time saver.


Find and replace in a whole project

It would be great if you could replace certain code with edited code in the whole project


Epub zipping

waynewongrj 4 years ago in iPad 0


I use Textastic regularly, and I’m a big fan.

Lately, I have been working on EPUB files, which need to be zipped in a particular way, with the mimetype file remaining uncompressed. Details are discussed here:

ePub Zip/Unzip AppleScript application for Mac OS X

This complex EPUB zipping currently requires me to use a Mac/PC app or command line to accomplish it. However, if Textastic could build it in as an action that could be performed on a folder like regular zipping, then Textastic could be used as a basic EPUB code editor on an iOS device. That would be great for those who need to edit the code of an EPUB when a Mac/PC is not available. It would also make Textastic even more unique in the App Store!
