The iPad is not great for coding
Remember when I said I could now code on my iPad (see post)? I take that back!
The first issue is that Cloud9 crashes every once in a while. The alternative is to work over SSH, but then it’s it’s really sluggish.
I also found three alternatives to Cloud9:
- The first one was free but extremely buggy and I couldn't even browse files easily.
- The other cost five dollars. It looked much better, but it would sometimes refresh file trees forever.
- The last one costs a whopping $20. I won't spend that kind of money on an ID.
Also coding with an iPad means that you will not have access to Chrome developer tools. At this rate, better go for a cheap Chromebook.
