    I am an avid user of Xcode for Swift and C#. Does anyone who share a familiar likeness to. Xcode believe there will be one coming to the iPad eventually. Similar to like a lightweight version.

    In the meantime is there any type of IDE on the iPad or syntax identifier app?

    Looking mostly something like sublime or notepad+ if there’s no IDE.

    I have Coda on my iPad for web development. But I mainly use it to fix things in an emergency. I don't much enjoy doing a lot of coding on my iPad in general, but Coda is a solid app with a built-in FTP and syntax highlighting for several languages. Not sure if it can do the languages you use but it's worth a search.

    I would be surprised if there is no Xcode for iPad at WWDC 2019.

    You have Scriptable and JSBox, both are Javascript IDEs, you can do HTML/CSS as well with them

    Your best bet is to either remote into a desktop, or use google cloud computing. You can set up full vms there, but it costs a bit.

    If it were python or js I could give you better recommendations.

    That’s what I currently use AWS workspaces. It does the job always like something native though.

    You could use Playgrounds from Apple to continue to code in Swift. It is a REPL. I wish it was integrated somehow with Xcode projects
