Jani Hartikainen has pointed out a new application that can run on the iPad and allows you to write PHP without having to write out a single line of code.

Yes, you heard that right! You can now code in PHP without having to write a single line of code '" amazing, right? The application that makes this possible is called Lemon ADE, and it runs on the iPad. In this post I'll go over how Lemon ADE works, and I have also recorded a short video demonstrating coding with the app.

The tool is an abstract syntax tree editor and parses the blocks on-screen down into valid PHP code. You define operations, variables, functions, etc and the result can be pushed out to an FTP server for execution (nope, nothing local). You can watch his video demonstration here.
