Are there any good code editors for running on Andriod-based devices? I'd like to find one so I can do light web page editing while on the road. Doesn't have to be elaborate or anything... just something like Notepad++ would be fine. Something with color coding and automatic indenting (tabs).

I don't plan to do a lot of coding, but if I get a spare minute here or there, I just want something that easy to use, and light weight (on the OS).
I specifically have one of the 32GB Samsung Galaxy Tabs with the 10.1 screen, and the Homeycomb 3.1 OS.

Good question. Personally, I haven't given it much thought, but I would love to see an Emacs for Android release! =)

Why would you want a keyboard based interface on devices that assume you don't have one?

Actually wait. Text editing on a mobile OS in general...

One of the reasons I was thinking in terms of Emacs, actually this is also one of the primary reasons given for using Emacs, is the ease with which you can create different "modes" and macros for the editor. You can basically create your own custom gui for the editor (if you desire).

I mainly want something for small edits (like updating some content on our company web pages) while I'm on the go (traveling). Most of the time, I carry my laptop, but on shorter trips (trips that are maybe a day or two--or trips that are less formal--like visiting a vendor or something only a few hours a way) I sometimes don't bring my laptop because all I need is email and Internet, which my tablet does. (I mainly will carry my laptop with me on trips when I have a lot of computing work to do, or if I'm going to be taking pictures/video).

I suppose I could probably use an Office program, like Documents to Go, and just save as a text file, I guess. But would love some color encoding like what you get in most IDEs or even with the free app, Notepad++

I would say Touchqode is the most complete code editor in the Android market. It features syntax highlighting for Java, HTML, JavaScript, Python, C++, C#, Ruby and PHP, and a way to upload code to have it compiled on another server.
