Support in Mobile Safari (iPad)


#1

Great app! I can already see there is a lot here that people can learn. Really amazing work!

I usually do a lot of coding on the iPad, and it seems that Gomix is something that one can pick up and get right into it. However it seems that a lot of functionality of the code editor does not work on Mobile Safari. Would it be possible to add full support for it?

Thanks!

Sure, is there anything in particular that you’re missing?

  1. Definitely the code editor is not ideal to do direct edits. The arrow keys do not work using an external bluetooth keyboard, and the the trackpad mode of the iPad keyboard is not working for me.
    2)Text selection is not working
  2. Copy and paste not working.
    Basically, I hope it can be like a full text editor that supports iOS.

I have the same problems as @dingclancy with the iPad Pro and Apple Keyboard.

Hi everyone :slight_smile:

unfortunately, Ace has this bug on iPad with external keyboards since 2011 at least (source). We are actively investigating possible fixes :slight_smile:

The solution is not trivial – we are evaluating all possible paths.

In the meantime, thanks for your patience! Happy coding :slight_smile:

Hi everyone :slight_smile:

We added basic support for iOS! You will be able to work on Gomix if you have an external keyboard. Arrow keys, copy’n’paste, keyboard navigation, all of this will work.

Unfortunately, due to problems with Ace (the editor we are using), the following features won’t work:

  • selection using touch
  • history (Cmd+Z, Shift+Cmd+Z)

We are trying to address those problems as well, but in the meantime, I hope you’ll have a good experience on iPads + keyboard :slight_smile:
