How I Do Web Development from my iPad Pro Full Time

As my 13” MacBook Air began to show it’s age and I didn’t see any Apple laptop hardware that looked interesting, I decided to take a stab at getting my iPad working as a web development machine. With a few days research and a bit of money spent, I turned my iPad Pro into a stellar web development machine.

As it stands, I rarely even need to turn my MacBook Air on anymore. I can do all my client work directly from my iPad without any issues.

There are really four main applications on iOS to this setup.

– Blink Shell: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1156707581?at=11l4W5
– Blink Shell on Github: https://github.com/blinksh/blink
– Dash: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1239167694?at=11l4W5
– Ergo WebTools: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1064318327?at=11l4W5
– Coda: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id500906297?at=11l4W5
– My Vim Configuration: https://github.com/curtismchale/WPTT-Vim-Config

In today’s video I’m going to walk you through them. I’ll describe what I use them for, and how I use Digital Ocean: https://curtismchale.ca/recommends/digital-ocean/ to glue it all together into a great machine. I’ve used this exact setup to work on The Sweet Setup: https://thesweetsetup.com/ and wrote this piece for them about the same setup: https://thesweetsetup.com/how-to-use-digital-ocean-for-web-development-on-an-ipad/
