- How does it change how you make a website if you can only edit on your mobile phone?
Have a VPS that you develop on, use your device to go into it
Use-case: 12 year old code, with a phone or just an iPod, and nothing else, but wants to create a website
- Filesystem (could use server)
- Option to make a website
- No view source (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/view-source-mobile/)
- bluetooth keyboard
Options for creating things on mobile:
- Github pages (free)
- mediawiki (requires setup on a server)
- etherpad as text editor
Fear: kid doesn't even know that making a website is an option
Biggest roadblock: ???
Gateways of the past: MySpace textarea
You can edit Wikipedia on mobile
Ipads can edit etherpad also (typed from an iPad)
Need a service or guide

ssh clients for phones
Coda is a package that includes prompt
