Ten lines of code

Posted by

I’ve been playing a bit with Diet Coda this morning. Of course, it’s fabulous. Panic’s attention to detail is much appreciated and I’m sure I’ll be using it for years. So far, I’ve made minor edits to one of my sites and upgraded another using the built-in ssh client. Good stuff.

One interesting thing is that the code editor only offers ten lines of code when the virtual keyboard is displaying in landscape mode. I quite like the iPad keyboard and find it pretty much as fast as the standard Apple Bluetooth keyboard. Now, I consider myself to be a vi guy, so I’m okay with ten lines of code, but if the iPad is the post-pc way to do things, it will be interesting to see how this develops. I can’t imagine that we’ll all be coding with only a ten-line view forever.

These are interesting times.
