Develop and debug html-pages including CSS and javascript on your Android device.

    If you're familiar with code playgrounds that are available on the internet like JSFiddle, CodePen CSSDeck, w3schools,... you will have litte trouble using HtmlDev.

    A previewer is provided so you can instantly view your html-page. This previewer also provides a console window on which javascript errors are reported and your log/debug-output (javascript functions console.log(), console.warn(), console.debug(), ...) is presented.

    The code of your html-page is entered in four segments:
    * head, for the title, meta-tags, links to external libraries etc.
    * CSS, the style-section in the head-segment where you define how the elements are displayed
    * javascript, the script-section in the head-segment which contains your javascript code
    * body, where you place your text, tables, forms, canvas,...

    Your projects are automatically stored in a local database and you can rename, clone, delete them. Each project can be exported to a single html-file on your SD card so you can view, browse, e-mail this html-file using your favorite file-explorer, browser, editor etc.

    Several demo's are provided to get you started. Some of the demos require an internet connection since they use external libraries like jQuery and/or MooTools that are downloaded when the html-page is viewed.
    There are numerous impressive examples of html-pages on the internet and you can copy/paste text into this app and improve the code. This version of HtmlDev will only load data from the internet for the preview of your html-page when a WiFi connection is detected.

    An external keyboard might be helpful since typing on a on-screen keyboard can be quite cumbersome, especially when non-alfanumeric characters are needed (and html and javascript use lots of these characters).

    HtmlDev allows you to fiddle around with javascript, CSS and html on your couch, in your garden, traveling on public transport, basically wherever and whenever you want. Good fun and educational.

    You can develop html pages that download data from the internet, for example externally hosted libraries, scripts, images, videos, etc., so avoid excessive downloads if you're using (mobile) data that is charged based on the amount of data you use. Usage in excess of your provider plan's data limits can result in steep overage charges.

    In no event is the developer liable to you or any other person or entity for any indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages, including loss of profit or goodwill, for any matter arising out of the use of this app.
