Ember Development on iPad

Wondering if anybody has tried this. Obviously given the sandboxed and locked down nature of the files system it is a little hard to imagine effectively running node, npm and ember CLI locally on iPad (without jail breaking and a lot of hassle).

But curious if anybody has successfully explored ember work flow on a tablet device like iPad.

My use case is just to prototype and experiment with Ember projects. And the occasional code review of existing projects. Recently acquired the shiny new iPad Air 2 and given that is it suppose to be as fast an Mac Book Air for a few years ago I am curious to see how viable it is to do development on the device.

Local dev environment possible to setup?

What are best remote server/vm type setups that have great client support for iOS?

Dropbox type workflow?

Any particularly helpful or essential apps? I have textastic which seems decent.
