Easy project publish

  1. Create a posterous account using the e-mail your IPad sends from

  2. Confirm the e-mail from posterous

  3. Use Codea’s project e-mail and e-mail to post@posterous.com (look at their help on how to post to your site and twitter in one mail)

It’s posted



Your user clicks on the file and (at least in Safari) the option to open in Codea is displayed

[I’m not affliated with posterous. Any other methods not using posterous are more than welcome]

[edit: git of course is better for collaboration than this, this is just a quick post, easy download method, focused on staying on the Ipad]

That’s really cool.

Edit: you can even leave comments, nice.

Very cool indeed. I just posted the Mandelbrot viewer here:


Took 2 minutes to set up.

Yes, this is nifty! I just tried it and found you can also post a screenshot with your project easily. After your posterous account is ready, run your Codea project and take a screenshot by pressing the sleep and the home buttons at the same time. Then go into your photos and copy the screenshot. Then go back to Codea and email the project from the main page to post@posterous.com, pasting the screenshot in the email too. Here is my test for the keyboard I did:


Thanks @Ipda41001 !

I had completely forgotten about the screenshot capability and you finding how to throw that into a mail is über

Nice @Ipda41001 ! We’re actually allowed to post anything on posterous i.e. text for description, screenshot image, video demo, link, downloadable file, etc. So yes, we could use it to share our code a lot easier and more descriptive. Thank you. :slight_smile:

Fantastic idea. I’ve set up http://npryce-codea.posterous.com to share my stuff.
