Freeridecoding today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of DraftCode 1.0.6, a new version of its iPad PHP IDE with built in code execution. PHP is a widely used open-source server-side scripting language designed to create dynamic Web pages. Take developing new ideas for your website into the creative and casual habit field of the iPad, or start to learn PHP without having to interact with a server. DraftCode lets you write, run and debug PHP code right on the iPad using standard PHP 5.4.10 included inside the application.
Structure your HTML, CSS and PHP files in DraftCode's easy to use and navigatable file/folder workspace. Execute any PHP or HTML file in the workspace and view the output rendered in Mobile Safari or as raw HTML code for debugging purposes. DraftCode supports includes and links to PHP files inside the workspace and navigating between different local php pages during execution. Besides just interpreting the PHP code, DraftCode's runtime also simulates webserver interaction like handling of CGI POST/GET parameters.
DraftCode's environment lets you run web apps that consist of multple php pages and include webforms or other POST/GET interaction. DraftCode features a minimalist, non-interfering and easy to use interface, including light/dark editor themes and an extended keyboard with code shortcuts and snippets.
