I often use websites like CodePen or JSFiddle to do some development crash tests.

I recently got an iPad and I'm looking for an app which can provide similar HTTP/CSS/JavaScript sandbox like these websites.

I require that it allows offline work, common libraries support (like jQuery), and the best would be Ajax support.


A paid solution would be Codepad. The price of this app is €0.89.

  • Supports many libaries like jQuery
  • Code highlighting
  • Code hinting
  • Custom programming keyboard
  • Javascript console
  • Offline libraries support, that's a good suggestion! Do you know if it provides offline Ajax support too? I don't see it in the feature list... Feb 6 '14 at 9:54
  • How would you be able to send requests without a internet connection? I don't think that would be possible. Feb 6 '14 at 10:13
  • Do you know the JSFiddle ajax support? It's very basic, and I think it would be possible to embedded it on iPad. Ajax doesn't really need a internet connection (it can be done on localhost for instance), actually I think it just need a HTTP response. Feb 6 '14 at 10:28

    You've posted two answers to this question. Please consider consolidating them into a single answer which compares their merits. Feb 9 '14 at 17:32

The app "JSpad" is what you need.

It has JS, HTML and CSS support with code highlighting.

    It doesn't provide common libraries support doesn't it? Feb 4 '14 at 23:26
  • I am not sure about that, but you could use direct links to libraries like query. Feb 4 '14 at 23:28

    Actually the major requirement is the offline functionnality. Feb 4 '14 at 23:33

    If it doesn't match some features but matches other features you should specify what features it doesn't match with possible workaround or something similar (or just a caveat if there isn't a work around. For example see my answer about ThunderBird. Feb 9 '14 at 17:10
