In the summer of 2017, I wanted to know what it would be like to use an iPad Pro as my main computer. I found out that it can actually work, thanks to an iOS app called Blink, an SSH replacement called Mosh, iOS 11 and running stuff on a server.

You could argue the title is a tad bit misleading - there's a lot of thin client DNA in his setup - but it's an interesting look at how to achieve this, nonetheless.

Copy / paste is very easy with emacs, even though I obviously have a mouse on my Mac desktop, I mostly use emacs and sporadically use the mouse even when edit lots and lots of code.

Mouse is a lot more convenient though for inviesitgating code, I.e. tracing symbols / call stacks etc...
