GodDamnItFrank's Review of Buffer Editor

Finally an iOS editor with vim bindings. I love the ability to edit files over ssh. A few feature requests: 1) I would love for better '.' support. It doesn't completely mimic the repeat feature in vim. For example, if I press the following in command mode: 'A #test' I get the appropriate response where the cursor moves to the end of the line and inserts '#test'. But when I press '.', the cursor doesn't move to the end of the line (which vim would do) but instead inserts '#test' wherever the cursor is. 2) It would be nicer for a larger escape key. I'm on a 6 plus and the esc key is tiny compared to the rest of my keys. 3) Tabs. 3) Ability to edit remote git repositories. This is obviously a big request but I think every software engineer is looking a feature like this. 4) Ability to run commands via ssh and read the output of said command. This is also a big request. The ability to run commands is an advantage that an ssh connect has over this editor. Overall fantastic editor. It really improves my workflow. Keep up the good work.

Does not work on iPad Pro

This app worked beautifully on the iPad mini, but I just purchased an iPad Pro (for this purpose!) and it completely breaks down. Logs into ssh server beautifully, but start to type on either soft or hard keyboard, and all I get is gibberish. Such promise. Such a disappointment. I am hopeful an update is on the way!

Love this app.

For the wishlist, support for ssh keys for those of us who don't use standard name/password authentication

Not worth the $$

Very difficult to figure out how to create a file. Does support ActionScript 3 but I find it a lot faster to just write code by hand with my Apple Pencil. Not worth the $4.99 I paid.

Simple keyboard is not good enough. Number and symbols are needed.

This is the vim editor you are looking for

So yeah, this is the vim editor you want. It works. It works well. It's quick, nice too look at, and works. Going to focus on two things I wish it had. First, better support for bluetooth keyboards. What I mean by that is, creating a new file, I can't just hit return and have it create the file. I have to tap Done. These little things would make it that much nicer. If I could move around the app with just keyboard commands, that would be even better! Secondly, it would be nice if I could use 'jj' to switch back to normal mode. Unfortunately, the option to switch only gives you one character to work with. Regardless, an excellent app! Thanks.
