By on Sep 23, 2013 at 3:33 am

Wellington, New Zealand – Freeridecoding today presents DraftCode 1.1, a new version of its iPad PHP IDE with built in code execution. PHP is a widely used open-source server-side scripting language designed to create dynamic Web pages and WebApps.

Take developing new ideas for your website into the creative and casual habit field of the iPad, or start to learn PHP without having to interact with a server. DraftCode lets you write, run and debug PHP right on your iPad using built-in standard PHP 5.4.10 and support for a variety of PHP extensions.

Besides just interpreting PHP, DraftCode includes a full featured runtime that supports running real world WebApps. DraftCode’s runtime supports everything you would expect from a webserver: Sessions, cookies, redirects and handling of POST or GET forms.

Structure your HTML, CSS and PHP files in DraftCode’s easy to use and navigatable file/folder workspace. Execute any PHP or HTML file in the workspace and view the output rendered in Mobile Safari or as raw HTML code for debugging purposes.

DraftCode features a minimalist, non-interfering and easy to use interface, including light/dark editor themes and an extended keyboard with code shortcuts and snippets.
