Hi, i think this is great. 

i would like to edit the files from my windows pc (it is just much faster) and then use the app to build and run it on the phone. so i did connect my jolla with my laptop and tried to find the files. unfortunatelly both locations: usr\share and sdcard are not accessible via usb.

is there a chance to create the projects on sdcard one level deeper ?

Hi! Thank you :)

What do you mean? I didn't quite get what you are trying to do? You can create projects /home/nemo/tIDE/Projects which is default location. :)

looks really cool. why no x86 release?

eekkelund's picture

Hi! I didn't release x86 version because it will have slightly different UI. If you want to try this version on tablet you can build it and test it:) I will be soon back from holidays to continue development:)


TL;DR x86 version is in progress:)
