We decided to bring Glitch to iOS and Android Try it out on these platforms and report any problem you have (and even if you like it, tell us how good we are! )
TL;DR: Glitch on iOS works flawlessly! Glitch on Android works well but you have to use a physical keyboard or install a custom keyboard because touch-based selection does not work (we suggest the Hacker’s Keyboard).
Some additional information:
We replaced Ace with CodeMirror as our code editor. CodeMirror has better mobile support, it’s easier to customize, and comes with a nice set of addons. We’ll be able to add new editor features more quickly!
iOS support is strong. Glitch works both on a touch only interface and using a physical keyboard. Try it out on your iPad! We can guarantee, it’s great!
Android support is good, but we unfortunately cannot support touch-based selection. This is due to some limitation at the OS level, which CodeMirror cannot overcome. But don’t fear! You can still use the editor and enjoy it. If you want a great experience, we suggest installing a custom keyboard, like the Hacker’s Keyboard, which comes with arrow keys, command keys (Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Meta) and even function keys! You can select text as you would on your computer, use the tab character, and also Ctrl+Z to undo! Of course, physical keyboards will work perfectly.
Happy coding with Glitch
