There are some very cool iPad HTML editor apps. If you are someone who codes HTML (and throw-in a bit of CSS around), and are looking for a good app that lets you code, test, debug – and even upload the file via FTP – you’ll probably be very interested in this list.
Being able to code on the go isn’t not what everyone likes to do. But sometimes, it just has to be done. Something broke off in your code somewhere and you are on the move. How do you – with just an iPad – set things right? Or may be some new design idea struck you like lightning and you want to test the code instantly. On the iPad.
While the HTML editor apps for iPad and iPad Mini listed here are amazing, they’re quite costly by normal standards. I mean, these are not the 99cent apps you usually find on the App Store.
Markup is an amazing app that’s really high-quality. And quite obviously, the price is equally high. Well, Markup isn’t just for HTML files though. The good thing – and probably the most important one – is that the interface that lets you fetch files from your website server and edit them is really simple to use. And of course, the testing is done without ever leaving the app which makes most sense.
Probably the cheapest among the best, Yelena is a beautifully designed code editor that handles much more than HTML. The IDE allows you to handle multiple files easily and comes with all the necessary elements of a decent code editor.
Koder is variantly described as a decently good and/or a brilliant IDE for coders. HTML developers will find this enormously useful with all features like code-highlighting, remote/local file handling, zip file support, FTP (Chmod features) and much more.
Gusto is one of the few apps that makes use of the iPad’s larger display to provide a “project-driven workflow”. Unlike some of the other apps mentioned here, Gusto gives a desktop-like feel while making sure it is not a minimized version that hits usability. Gusto is highly popular.
If you thought I was going to miss this, remember that there are thousands of Textastic fans who’d probably hunt me down if they didn’t see this one here. Saving the best for the last, Textastic is probably the most amazing HTML editor for the iPad. With a range of file import/export options, SDKs and a lot of libraries, Textastic is one app that perfectly fits nerds, experts and professionals.
