Discussion on: Developing Rails apps using an iPad

I tried to go full iPad when I started my own company earlier this year. My stack is Rails & React w/ GraphQL API. I was able to get the code editing/writing aspect of my workflow down, but not getting a local version of rails or react running or console aspect. I was hoping that tools like CodeSandbox would make it possible but I was pretty disappointed with every one of them.

As far as the editor goes, Textastic is the best IDE I've used (for iPhone & iPad), but my workflow was still considerably slower than on a Macbook or iMac. Working Copy was the best Git client and it works well with Textastic.

+1 to Textastic - I've found Textastic to be a good editor.
