Get the power of WordPress and FlatPress at Your Hands!
If you are a PHP developer looking for convenience when creating exquisite website functionality, look no further. DraftCode takes away the pain of needing internet connectivity and server accessibility by putting the power of WordPress and FlatPress in your hands, from the comfort of your handy-dandy iPad.
By harnessing the power of runtime environments that are packed with programming pliability and support for offline theme and plugin development, DraftCode offers a clean, yet powerful playground for PHP professionals, allowing them to make the most of PHP 5.4.23, wherever they are. Creative ideas and breakthroughs can happen at any time, and as long as you have your iPad loaded with DraftCode, you will be able to capture ideas and keep them.
DraftCode also offers a variety of useful and application enhancing PHP extensions along with a runtime environment that serves as your personal web server, providing comprehensive support for individual sessions, cookies and forms. Your development workspace is efficiently maintained in a flat-file store which is easily appended to with seamless HTML, PHP and CSS file transfers, allowing you to import and reuse code from other sources and between apps within your device. Embedded access to the iPad’s camera roll or photo library means instantaneous accessibility to images created on the spot and ready for use.
The DraftCode environment supports iterative development with instant feedback by rendering the HTML as it would appear on Safari or simply as HTML, if you prefer to get into the nitty-gritty details. Designs can be created and altered on the go. You could be getting feedback from just about anyone who is near you, so you can shape and mold your pages and your sites instantaneously. The minimalist interface offers just what developers need, and nothing more. An extended keyboard makes the coding experience that much more easier, as well.
DraftCode features include:
- PHP Extensions – DraftCode comes armed with popular extensions, such as MySQL, Sqlite3, PDO, OpenSSL, libxml, and ZIP, with many more to come!
- File/Folder Workspace – File management is quick and easy, with seamless transfers between devices and applications, supporting reuse and re-engineering.
- Code Editor Themes – Setup the work environment in a way that is most conducive to productivity. Different colored themes and brightness levels are available, boosting productivity and expediting results.
As a whole the app was well-designed for the engineering type of user, but at first glance, it was not quite apparent as to how to start. It took a few rounds of trial and error before I could make any amount of progress in understanding where to start and how to proceed from there.
