I recently headed off on a five day vacation and though I do have my priorities in order (eat, see the sights, take photos, walk a lot, read a lot) there is inevitably some downtime as the days go on. I didn’t want to lug along a laptop on this vacation so I resolved to see if there was any practical way to play with AngularJS and Ember.js (two frameworks I’ve been interested in recently) using only my iPad and an inexpensive Bluetooth keyboard.*
That means that you’re going to be flying completely blind with AngularJS unless you’re prepared to handle logging via some other mechanism and even on Ember.js, are we really looking forward to something that’s reduced us to debugging entirely via log messages?
BTW, Cloud9 IDE looks like it would be an even better solution to this problem but they use the Ace editor and for whatever reason, it doesn’t work well on an iPad. I had problems with cursor position being one place while actual editing was another, it didn’t want to work well with my keyboard, it seemed slow, etc. There needs to be some work done on either the editor itself or on the iPad browser (or perhaps both) to make that a more viable solution.
* Specifically a third generation iPad and the AmazonBasics Bluetooth Keyboard.
