  1. Enable access to LAN files (without FTP etc)

    I use NetExtender to access my machines remotely. I can access the remote files using ES File Explorer but can't open a remote file from the DroidEdit menu nor save a new file to the remote machine.

    Yes I could set up FTP etc but this is another application I would have to set up, maintain etc.

    • explain configuration about an existing git repo for use

      I'm finding difficult to use Git because https keeps saying "(...) not authorized" (???) and ssh saying "(...) Unknown host key...".

      And these messages are showing so much fast. Show them as alerts, please.

      Thanks

          • Code folding ...

            like e.g. in Notepad++ for Windows

            makes possible to fold/hide sections of code between for example comment begin and end tags and others (<head>, <?php?>, <div>, ... ) and so helps to work with large code files.

            • Allow clone destination of git be specified

              Allow a destination directory to be specified either globally or per repository. This would allow the preview in browser to work with git cloned files. The current clkne dir does not havd correct permissions.

                • Tab display

                  ## Tab display

                  Add a tab display option to "DroidEdit (free code editor)"

                  i.o.w. an option to display tabs with another number of spaces than 2

                  because

                  * some text (f.e. a table) is designed to be displayed with 4 rather 2 (monospaced) spaces per tab
                  * "Settings > Number of spaces" don't change the tab display from 2 to f.e. 4 spaces

                  • Syntax Highlighting Idea

                    Operator / Function / Variable all share the same color when syntax is high lighted. Would it be possible to break them apart and give the user the ability to give them each unique colors. Thanks for the consideration and I love this app, its a must have on all my tablets.

                        • Let me extend!

                          I suggest you let users extend the app with custom syntax highlighters, keyboard shortcuts, and so on.

                              • Bug: The app doesn't support cyrillic (windows-1251 encoding)

                                I just made a file with notepad (Windows) and then I tried to open it with your app. I chose Cyrillic (windows-1251) encoding but I can't see proper letters. I tried all available encoding but still with no luck.
                                Here's the file: http://www.sendspace.com/file/tenhs4

                                      • Hi. i just purchsed droidedit. one thing thats really strange is that it wont open *.org files (text files created by emacs org-mode)?

                                        All other editors i have ever worked with can read it as text files. even better would be if one can also syntax highlight the orgmode files

                                        thx

                                        z
