DarkBASIC Professional Discussion / Is there any IDE or editor with syntax highlighting and help files I can run on my phone? Don't need to compile and run, just wanting to be able to edit code with syntax highlighting and help files

I realize this is very much a long shot and the answers probably no, but figure it can't hurt to ask.

While at work, I often have stretches of down time I'd like to use to work on some code, but I can't have a laptop or computer with me. What I DO have is my phone. I realize there's not going to be a way to actually RUN anything I write on my phone, but that's fine. What I'm looking for is a way to simply create and edit code on my phone while still the syntax highlighting and built in help files.

And yes, I realize I could use literally any text program or Google docs or whatever else, but that wouldn't have syntax highlighting or the help files. Ideally I'd like to find a way to write code from my phone that would allow me to have both of those features.

Is there any kind of program or app or website that would allow me to do this?

For DBP specific highlighting you will struggle outside of the Windows based editors that exist. I think your best bet is an internet facing virtual machine (VM) that you can install an editor on, and then connect to via your phone.

Could write a web-based editor. The problem is the DB language, the spaces in commands make it a pain in the butt to code a good highlighter. But it's doable, I made one in DBP itself.
