As I’ve outlined before, my setup is simple. I use DigitalOcean and connect to my server with Blink. Once connected, I tmux and vim - old habits die hard. During this time, I’ve encountered a few minor annoyances, and I’ll share them here.
I map the escape key to capslock in Blink through Settings -> Keyboard -> Special Keys -> Caps as Esc. Most of the time, everything works fine, but I have Japanese and Emoji keyboards enabled, so sometimes this changes the input mode. To fix this unwanted behavior, I turned off General -> Keyboard -> Hardware Keyboard -> Switch Languages using Caps Lock.
Blink randomly zoom in, just a little bit, just enough to seem off. I’m using a setting of 16px for my font, which might not be the default font size for Blink. It seems to correlate with app switching, or creating a new session. So I need to hit [Command] + [=] whenever I open Blink. When there are phantom zoomed sessions, I need to kill all mosh sessions and reconnect.
The ability to write code on an iPad is improving, and while I find myself only reaching for my laptop when I need react/redux dev tools or other advanced debugging tools, the overall experience is enjoyable.
