Subject Mobile development: Uploading design docs from Android
Date Sat, 29 Sep 2012 17:06:13 GMT
Has anyone managed to upload their edited design docs from Android?
Here's what I found so far:

- nodejs: only an old experimental package for node 0.6 available. Too
outdated, not actively developed. No npm?

- Curl: couldn't find a curl binary at all. Would be the easiest
solution if wrapped as an apk, accessed from the terminal emulator.

- wget: found an old binary. Would require rooting device. Not sure it
can upload attachments.

- Various http request apps: problem is you can't upload design docs
this way because they are attachments. It should work for other
couchdb requests, so not bad for testing.

- Futon: Tried mobile Chrome with Android 4.1. Selected file did not
show in the dialog and nothing was uploaded. Futon would be a lot of
work to keep manually uploading anyway.


There are some nice code editors for tablet devices now. One editor,
DroidEdit, can even launch scripts. This would be great say with a
Python script for uploading single design docs. A full-blown couchapp
is not necessary for a bit of mobile development. It's fine to just
upload the single js/html/css files you are working on.

Any experience or solutions? Uploading a single design doc at a time
is all I would require.

Thanks,

Marcus
