Guys, please make the jump and give us WYSIWYG editing

Peter Payne 8 years ago in iPad updated by StefanD. 2 years 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 8 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 8 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 7 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 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

SendCode from Editor to Terminal. Shortcut for this?

rmbowers 4 months ago in iPad updated 3 months ago 2

Wonderful software! I am having fun leaning to use my ipad as an alternative to my macpro for some computing.

Question: How to implement two Sublime Text 3 packages, "SendCode" and "SublimeREPL"

Purpose: (of which there may already be a shortcut for) would be to highlight a block of text in an editor (usually R or Python), then use some shortcut (Cmd + E) to send code to the currently open terminal. Is this already possible? If not, would there be a way to use specifically the SendCode package for Sublime Text 3 in Textastic? I have already copied the two SendCode and SublimeREPL directories to my #Textastic directory, but have run Reload Customizations, but to no avail. I can get theme files to work properly, but am not able to correctly implement Sublime packages. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

x-callback-url support for external folders

douglas 7 months ago in iPad 0

Current documentation shows support for local and iCloud but I wasn’t able to get this to work for external folders (I added Working Copy folder in external folders but was unable to build a url that would open a file from that location)

hide unnecessary ui component

Dang H. 9 months ago in iPad updated by Graham 2 months ago 3

hello,

I would love to have an option to hide these components as it get in the way and wasting my screen real estate:

- system status bar

- system home bar (ios 13)

- textastic toolbar

Also a shortcut to open the file panel and focus to the search field would be very useful. I don’t think there’s a way to do it currently.

Quick access to opened tabs on external keyboard

ShadeHunter 2 years ago in iPad updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 2 years 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 :)

MultiMarkdown File Transclusion

Dany Gauthier 2 years ago in iPad updated 3 months ago 2

In Textastic manual, I saw that Textastic uses MultiMarkdown library for previewing Markdown.

When looking at the MultiMarkdown syntax guide, there is something called "Transclusion":

https://rawgit.com/fletcher/MultiMarkdown-6-Syntax-Guide/master/index.html


Unfortunately, when I use Textastic for iOS, I am unable to make transclusion work.


I do not know which MultiMarkdown version is used by Textastic, but I do know that feature exists since at least version 4:

http://fletcher.github.io/MultiMarkdown-4/transclusion.html


I would really like file transclusion to work. For example, I would set all my links inside one file, and reference it from my other files. Or, I would put reusable content in some files and reference them from other files. Or I would create one file per chapter and reference all chapters from a main markdown file. etc. etc.


Is file transclusion something that have been tought about? Is it something that can be enabled?

ESCape key in SSH terminal with external keyboard (Apple Keyboard)

sylvoie 2 years ago in iPad updated by Andrei 2 years ago 3

First, I want to thank you for version 7 of Textastic. It’s the best editor on iPad, and I like it.


I use Textastic’s SSH terminal that is very good. My only concern is the ESC key with an external keyboard. Sometimes, I need to use VI to edit a file. I don’t use the additional keys bar, this bar take too much space on screen. I don’t have an ESC key on my external keyboard.

I used an other SSH terminal before version 7. I was using a very cool fonctionnality where to ESCape in VI, you only have to touch the screen two times with one finger. Is-it possible to add something like that in SSH terminal to ESC?


Thank’s
