App Description

The iPad PHP IDE with a webserver runtime to run real WebApps offline. Like WordPress, which is included for offline theme and plugin development.

Develop and run real PHP WebApps offline inside DraftCode using built in standard PHP 5.4.23, PHP extensions and a runtime that acts as your web server with full support for sessions, cookies, redirects and forms. No internet connection or uploading required.

Take developing new ideas into the creative and casual habit field of the iPad, or start to learn PHP without having to interact with a server.

If you have any questions, help is available on the product website.


DraftCode's runtime does not only execute PHP. It supports everything you need to run a real PHP WebApp offline by providing the webserver environment. DraftCode fully supports sessions, cookies, redirects, working with POST and GET forms and AJAX. And of course it also runs Javascript and renders HTML and CSS.
The runtime has been tested with applications like WordPress, Flatpress and others.


DraftCode already includes many popular extensions like MySQL, Sqlite3, PDO, OpenSSL, libxml, ZIP and others. And we are working on including more with each release.


DraftCode has an easy to use file/folder workspace for you to manage your files. You can import image resources from your camera roll and send your code to other iOS applications.


View your pages as they would appear on Safari. You can work on javascript/AJAX, HTML and CSS in conjunction with PHP. Alternatively view the raw html for debugging.


Edit your code in a dark or light colour scheme with adjustable font-size. Use the keyboard extensions to quickly access common code snippets and characters. Draftcode of course also supports working with an external keyboard.
