Epub zipping

waynewongrj 3 years ago in iPad 0

Hi,


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!

Guys, please make the jump and give us WYSIWYG editing

Peter Payne 7 years ago in iPad updated by StefanD. 1 year ago 1

I know I seem like a n00b by asking for this but there are NO good options for editing an existing HTML file in iOS. The reason I need to this is, I am a writer (not a HTML programmer) and need an environment where I can write my update posts and debug everything before it's uploaded as HTML to our website. Please give us this option? It would be greatly appreciated.

Integrating mySQL/DB autocomplete/suggest support

Billy Griffiths 7 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 years ago 1

I've recently discovered Textastic for coding on to go. Something I would like to see (as a PHP purist) in future releases are database table autocompletes. As a developer working on various projects at the same time, I often get confused as to which table belongs to which project. 


If I had the ability to specify a remote DB connection and have table names autocompleted (a local cached list might be a good idea) when writing SQL queries, that would really boost my productivity as I would no longer need to hop between apps.

Support for .master and .scss / .sass file extension

James Lock 6 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 6 years ago 1

Hello,


Built int support for DotNET .master files (same as aspx) would be great, as well as .scss and .sass files.  I currently have downloaded some 3rd party textmate bundles to do this, but would be great to have in-built support.


cheers,

James

Quick access to opened tabs on external keyboard

ShadeHunter 9 months ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 9 months ago 1
It would be amazing, if we could simply switch between opened tabs using keyboard shortcuts. For example CMD+1 would be first opened tab, CMD+2 second, and so on. Currenlty those shortcuts are not used for anything and this would be a perfect usage for them. 

The currenlty used shortcut for switching tabs (CTRL+TAB) is not so handy, you have to move the left hand to press it and if you have more tabs you have to press it multiple times. "CMD + 1-9" would be much more convenient.

Thank you for your great work :)

Keyboard shortcut to move current selection up/down

scottstamile 1 year ago in iPad 0

Some text exitors have the ability to move the current line or selection up or down using the keyboard. This has many used, for reordering blocks or lines.


A number of mac apps including sublime text and omnioutliner use the shortcut cmd + ctl + up/down

Distraction free mode

minoskt 2 years ago in iPad updated 2 years ago 2

Hello


Your iOS editor is amazing and by far the best in iOS.


I was wandering if it would be possible to support a “Distraction Free Mode”, similar to what Sublime has in macOS. I use Textastic for Latex writing in iOS and would be perfect if you could limit the max column size allowed and keep the text in the middle of the screen.


Thank you

Preview HTML while editing (In a split view - not full screen)

Adamitude 2 years ago in iPad updated 2 years ago 8

Currently I edit HTML on my iPad split view and open the same Dropbox file in textastic and Dropbox and use Dropbox to see a live refresh of what I’m doing. It’s great but not perfect as there is a delay. Would be nice if textastic could do both, as it merely shows a preview in full screen. Thanks!

Sync connections between devices.

Don 2 years ago in iPad 0

Makes all the servers I connect to available on all my devices without recreating them manually. My connections change often, as do my devices depending on my travel and expected locations. Delete a server connection and it deletes on all devices. Create a server connection and it shows on all devices.


I use “>Prompt 2” by Panic, Inc. for command line work on servers. All connections are synced between devices automatically.
