Apple has a winner. Since 2018.

by Volker Weber

The M1 Mac reviews are in and reviewers are blown away by the sheer power and performance of Apple silicon. And it runs iOS software!

Shocking.

But wait. What's a computer?

But file management and file sharing between apps on iOS still drives me nuts.

Jetzt noch nen gescheiten Dateimanager und Mehrbenutzersystem.

Thought about that some time ago, but it's not ready yet for software development (Java/Typescript/Javascript). even if code would be deployed and run remotely via SSH.

Having some hope that Visual Studio Code someday will fill that gap.

Indeed. File management sucks, and it is unfit for software development.

Volker Weber, 2020-11-19

There is hope for software development. Months ago I had tested the VS code-server on the iPad Pro but that had its quirks, even with the updated Safari browser with desktop quality.
I just installed the latest Docker image from https://hub.docker.com/r/codercom/code-server and it now looks much better.

I covet the iPad Pro 12 with Magic Keyboard. But alas until I'm able to spin up a postgres database server and a Rails server and and and ..... it remains something that just will not do what I'd like it to do. (Please do not say cloud development environment to me)

Yes, I absolutely agree. iPad is not suited for development.

Volker Weber, 2020-11-20

Nor for remote server administration. Unfortunately.

Stefan Rubner, 2020-11-20

Why, Stefan? You can work the Terminal without issues.

Martin Hiegl, 2020-11-20

It's 2020 now. Management By Code. Same as software development.

Volker Weber, 2020-11-20

With the M1-Mac now able to run iOS apps, shouldn't the iPad be as capable of running Mac OS?

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
