Projects / AEditor


AEditor is a programmer's editor for Windows, Unix, and Mac OS X that relies on the fox toolkit. It can do syntax coloring of Ruby and C++ files. It's easy to change the color theme. Most things are customizable. It is written in Ruby and is carefully unit-tested (it has 421 tests). It is written in only ~5500 lines of code, so it should be easy to grasp and extend.

    Release Notes: This release adds a CUA keymap so that one can do selections via shift+arrow keys. Memory consumption has been reduced from 60000 instances to about 5000 instances (a lot), which has made the editor more responsive. The long-standing problem with the Escape key that terminated the application has finally been solved. The configuration system has been simplified, so its easier to add new options.
