Writing code on an iPad is a seductive idea with a lot of technical hurdles. That’s why developer/entrepreneur/Y Combinator alumnus Darshan Shankar created Binary, an iPad app that lets you write, test, and run code from just about anywhere.
“This means instead of carrying laptops around, a developer could write an app, test it, and deploy it — all from the iPad,” Shankar explained to VentureBeat via email.
Binary also features tabs, themes, syntax highlighting, and all the handy code editor/IDE features you love so well.
“I use a Bluetooth keyboard with it and do most of my development on the iPad now,” said Shankar. “With Binary, you can write any app — a website, Node.js server, Python server, an iPhone app — anything!”
