External editor on Winodws or Linux
Hi @mikael, awesome project! Your code looks good.
My initial vision was to access the files with scp so i can mount it on computer as local dir. Then I have all of my usual workflow. Even on windows i can use winscp for mounting remote disk.
Somehow touchscreen can't replace keyboard and monitor.
Can i ask you to help me understand how you use WebIDE?
Run WebIDE.py from Pythonista editor, stop the script when editing is complete and then find and run edited script ?
Can one run WebIDE.py script in the background so it does not interfere with editor?
@AlexHevc, sorry, not my code, and not something I have personally needed or used. But if you can make it work like that, I would imagine there would be bits and pieces that could be turned to your purpose.
@AlexHevc, not sure if your message meant that you use Windows? If you used a Mac, then you could use multipeer connectivity for dropping the files to the phone.
Thanks @mikael .
I would appreciate a method to edit scripts from windows or linux computer :)
@AlexHevc, oh, the title, yes, sorry...
Windows has an iCloud syncing client. Does it see the Pythonista iCloud folder? If yes, you could just edit files in that folder on Windows, and then run on an iOS device.
Thanks @mikael, good method

I've been using iCloud as the storage location and Visual Studio Code to edit the code on my Mac. I have not been able to make the same arrangement work with Google Drive using the "External Files" section of the Pythonista main panel, but I think it should be possible?

If you're looking for affordable Windows keys, there are several trustworthy sources you can explore. One popular option is checking out reputable online marketplaces like eBay, Amazon, or even certain third-party resellers.
You can rock that setup! If you're looking to author Python scripts on your desktop machine (Windows or Linux) and run 'em on your iPhone, it's possible. While Pythonista might not have direct SCP/FTP access, you can still make it work with a few alternative options.
For Windows, you can try tools like WinSCP or FileZilla to transfer your updated Python scripts to your iPhone.
