    Working Copy is excellent for version control and has a pretty good code editor built-in. I used it to develop my website. It's a Jekyll site hosted on Netlify, so all I need to do is push a commit and the site is automatically rebuilt and pushed live within a few seconds. It's a bit slower than running a local dev server but not by much.

    Coda has a good code editor, as well as excellent terminal and S/FTP capabilities. I use it regularly to maintain and update existing sites. As soon as they add version control support it'll become my primary web dev tool on the iPad.

    DraftCode provides a full PHP/MySQL environment, so it's possible to develop and run PHP CMS' like Wordpress locally.

    Pythonista provides a Python environment, so it's possible to run an interactive shell and develop locally with Flask and SQLite. I even managed to get Django working, though it wasn't possible to use PostgreSQL.

    ReScript provides a NodeJS runtime for all your Javascript needs.

    I really want a Ruby environment on iOS to develop Jekyll & Rails locally, but nothing seems to be out there yet.
