android text editor for php / html ?

2 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

i paired a bluetooth keyboard (a logitec di novo with mouspad) with my galaxy one yesterday and surprisingly it even showed a mouse cursor on the screen so i could use it like a normal laptop. pretty cool :P

this raised an idea: if i could find a good text editor with syntax highlighting, auto tabbing etc. to edit php scripts and html code i could easily live without a laptop during my vacations as this would cover my immediate needs and allow me to help my customers from my galaxy tab. ideally the text editor should also support to open a file directly through ftp or even sftp.

does such a thing exist? i searched the marked for "php edit" and found an app which prettymuch sucks .. actually i have no clue why it is supposed to be a php editor besides the fact that it offers soft-buttons covering often used signs like []{} etc. but it has no syntax highlighting, it can't automatically indent and so on.

any ideas?

my backup plan is to use an ssh terminal software and just keep editing my files from a linux server with nano or so but it would be more comfortable (that's my personal opinion) to have a native app doing this directly inside the nice gui.

cheers

That would be rather handy for coding, but AFAIK there's nothing even approaching a reasonable scripting editor for Android available, as there's no real demand for the results of such editing on the platform (except for those crazy people who have a GCC port on their phone). You might need to track down the *nix source for something suitable and port it.
