  2. What would happen if I use os module and run os.getlogin() what will be the username that comes out….

  3. Do you think that Textastic would be a great code editor for web development? I don’t want to use my mac, I prefer my Ipad Pro, but I’m not sure if it’s ok for a beginner (atm I known html and a bit of css) like me.

  5. What do you think about the R Programming Compiler for iPad? Have you played around on it yet?

  6. Very nice. I’d also like to give a plug for iVim for anyone who likes the old-school vi editor. One can use “Open with…” for files in Working Copy, and edit in iVim ! It even has a whole slew of new iOS ports, like entering :ishare to see a pop-up window to share text content to anything in your share sheet. Very nice editor option for coders.

  7. why would you do that yourself tho

  8. Id love a video about your shortcut usage

  14. goormIDE is also a good option to choose for coding on a pad. goormIDE provides a complete development environment based on web browser. Powerful collaboration features such as code sharing via link, real-time simultaneous editing, and online chat.

  15. Is only phyton possible? Is this the same software As in Mac? Is anything Missing?

  16. When I run a python script in pythonista and I open a different app, will it continue to run in the background?

  17. Have you used Continuous that gives you .NET programming abilities? Interested in a review of that.

  18. For me it's use is severely limited by the fact that you can't easily get code in or code out. So other than a few examples I didn't do anything with it.
    Apart from the import/export problem there's the second problem that the GUIs you can build with it can't be transferred to run on other platforms.

    In comparison: On Android you can write kivy GUI code that runs in the Qpython for mobile phones as well. Much more useful.As everything Apple you are very limited in a jail; it will be really useful in a jailbroken device.
    You can learn python on it but you couldn't deploy an application or commit to a git branch; also you can't deploy an app directly, need to rely on templates to do it in xcode.
    From a hardware perspective (the video title says Coding on the iPad Pro and should review this too), using an iPad with a bluetooth keyboard (because the touch keyboard sucks for a long coding session) AND wifi will drain your battery pretty fast
