Kerri and Ash cover a couple favorite topics: command line shells and coding on the iPad.
First up! Spaceship prompt, which bills itself as a "minimalistic, powerful and extremely customizable Zsh prompt". https://spaceship-prompt.sh
Kerri and Ash explore what Spaceship's async capabilities can enable for a zsh prompt and consider why having a battery indicator in your shell prompt might be useful. Of course, fish shell and Oh My Zsh do not go neglected in the conversation.
Next up! Coding on the iPad with Code App, a native IDE for iPad. https://thebaselab.com/code/
Our hosts consider the pros and cons of two different approaches to enabling real development work on iPad: thin clients like GitHub Codespaces (browser-based, server-side execution) versus native applications like Code App (app-based, local execution—with some exceptions). Kerri and Ash also theorize on what it must be like to get local code execution environments for Node.js, Python, PHP, and C/C++ past Apple App Store review.
