Coding on mobile ios

is there any way to write a choicescript game on an ios phone? i don’t have access to an android phone or any sort of computer, and i figured this would be the best place to ask.

From a quick look at it looks like Textastic is your best option.

that’s too bad since it’s around $10 :pensive: do you know of any that are free or under $5?

You could try the web version of CSIDE:

I never moved past Chapter 1, but Retired game was written entirely on my phone.

I used a combination of the app PlainText (now no longer available on the app store, sadly) and Goodreader, which can store the entire dfabulich folder and launch the game in its browser.

Back when I still had a commute, I did some CS stuff with Kodex. It’s completely free and has a lot of nice features, including indent/dedent buttons, a file scroller, visible whitespace characters, and multiple cursors. No syntax highlighting for CS, but you can opt to use one of the other built-in highlighters, which is marginally useful.

Not perfect by any means, but it was the best app I could find for the job.

that one works perfectly for me!!! thank you so much :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I’m working partially on iOS as well. Textastic works well for the writing and coding, but I haven’t yet found a way to test the game on iOS. Unfortunately the goodreader app recommended here does not work with the iOS screen reader. Is there another app which can be used for testing?
