developing on iPad This post is outdated

Hi all!

Has anyone tried developing Shopify themes on an iPad? I'm working on mine right now and found out that I can't edit themes from the theme editor. It would be fab if there's an app that allows you to work externally like Textmate with bundles. I'm still getting used to my new device but was just curious if anyone has any workaround.

Thanks!

Best way to do that.. buy iSSH for iPad, and a wireless KB. Then you can easily connect to a cloud machine like Linode or EC2. Since they can host a terminal session for you, you can VIM away on your Theme code. With a simple code watcher uploading changed assets to Shopify, you have the best iPad editing environment possible. 

Lots of people are doing this, although probably not for Shopify Theme development specifically.

Cool! I heard about Linode from my short research. I guess I'll have to look into the cloud thing more. I do have the apple keyboard and it helps a lot.

Thanks, HunkyBill!
