Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Suitable Rust GUI Library for Code Editor?
8 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 3 Dec 2022
Have a look at what Lapce uses. The editor is coming along nicely, and iirc, they use the Xi editor as a plug-in.
CRDTs make multiplayer text editing part of Zed's DNA
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 1 Dec 2022
Raph Levien posted a retrospective about using CRDT’s for collaborative editing in xi-editor here . His conclusion is
“I come to the conclusion that the CRDT is not pulling its (considerable) weight. When I think about a future evolution of xi-editor, I see a much brighter future with a simpler, largely synchronous model, that still of course has enough revision tracking to get good results with asynchronous peers like the language server.”

Maybe architect kernel as a microservice? There was some text editor developed as a microservice; I don't see why it couldn't work for a FX application or game engine.
Zas editor post-mortem
4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 21 Jun 2022
A while ago there was a post about Zas Editor, an editor for mac that used parts of Xi as the backend. Since then, the website has been taken down and it's presumably abandoned. There was some apprehension about its licensing but it was cool.
GitHub is sunsetting Atom
17 projects | reddit.com/r/programming | 8 Jun 2022
I thought that after the failure of the https://github.com/xi-editor/xi-editor project (which Lapce seems to take inspiration from) people would stop trying it, but looks like it's doing the opposite.

Suggestions for building an IDE
10 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 10 Apr 2022
My initial thoughts are using something like the xi-editor or parts from it for text manipulation, some rust GUI framework for rendering, like egui or iced, for more language contextual actions like autocomplete I think I'd have to look into the LSP.10 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 10 Apr 2022
Oh I didn't realize that it might have been a serious question, I'm too unfamiliar with the domain to not make stupid misinterpretations it seems, really sorry about that. Anyway no, that's a good suggestion, I think starting there makes the most sense but I'm having some decision-anxiety about where to start. I think xi-editor is likely to be the best place to start constructing an editor without making the project impossible to finish
Forget VIM, VS Code is the best editor

That's nice and all but have you kakuone has it built-in https://github.com/mawww/kakoune/blob/master/doc/screenshot-i3.gif

Top 6 awesome text editors for Linux and Unix command-line users/developers

Kakoune is a modal text editor. Vim is a significant inspiration for Kakoune existence, and it tries to improve the text editing workflow and fit better to the Unix philosophy. From the project home page:
Helix Editor – 90% of Neovim With Kakoune

The article favorably mentions Helix, a modal text editor inspired by Vim and Kakoune. Other commentators also seemed taken with this new text editor.

Mle is a small, flexible, terminal-based text editor written in C
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 1 Oct 2022
For that, try Kakoune, which is modal with a mostly-postfix language instead of vi's usually-prefix one and uses this to also be a multiple-selections editor with immediate visual feedback. It falls too much into the uncanny valley of almost-but-not-quite-vi for some people, though.
My terminal text editor - Unblind
5 projects | reddit.com/r/commandline | 28 Sep 2022
Is there an editor like emacs, vim, etc. but (solely) used in the BSD world?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/BSD | 23 Sep 2022
Kakoune fails your request on two counts: * It's not BSD-anything * It's not licensed; Unlicense is not a license, but a public-domain statement.

I think the text editor, [Kakoune](https://github.com/mawww/kakoune), was written as an experiment in modern C++ language features. Its documentation says it requires a C++20 compiler, though I don't imagine it was originally for that version, since it was started before 2020.
Visual Studio Code is designed to fracture
17 projects | reddit.com/r/programming | 31 Aug 2022
Even if you disregard all of the terminal based editors (micro, Kakoune, neovim, Helix) there's Kate which is already awesome and constantly getting great updates. There are also many promising projects like Lapce and CudaText (but they are admittedly not great yet).
What are some alternatives?
helix - A post-modern modal text editor.
micro-editor - A modern and intuitive terminal-based text editor
alacritty - A cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator.
vis - A vi-like editor based on Plan 9's structural regular expressions
iota - A terminal-based text editor written in Rust
lapce - Lightning-fast and Powerful Code Editor written in Rust
Servo - The Servo Browser Engine
Yuescript - A Moonscript dialect compiles to Lua.
kakoune.el - A very simple simulation of the kakoune editor inside of emacs.
SpaceVim - A community-driven modular vim/neovim distribution - The ultimate vimrc
LunarVim - 🌙 LunarVim is an IDE layer for Neovim. Completely free and community driven.
