    Dear ImGui: Bloat-free Graphical User interface for C++ with minimal dependencies

    As soon as I saw the screenshot, I instantly knew it was using Dear Imgui library [1] under the hood because of the familiar Imgui design cues. Dear Imgui is originally meant to be used in combination with game & graphics engines which support hardware acceleration. Thus, you get high framerates.

  • language-server-protocol-inspector

    Interactive Language Server log inspector

    I wonder if these performance issues apply to all language extensions that rely on a language server (implemented in VSCode or otherwise). From what I understand, since JSON [0] is used over the wire between the editor and the language server process, there's a lot of serialisation/deserialisation overhead.

    Microsoft used to maintain a log inspector [1] which you could use to see the chatter between the server and client, and there was a _lot_ of chatter with a _lot_ of JSON.

  • lite

    A lightweight text editor written in Lua

    I desperately want this. I find text editors w/ basic linting to be too limited but full IDE's like Idea or even VSCode too heavy for some devices. Something in between :(. I've given up laptop development and am forced to work with my desktop until I can afford a better laptop because Idea/VSCode runs so slowly.

    FWIW, I use lite (https://github.com/rxi/lite) if I need a very lightweight text editor that has rust linting (https://github.com/liquidev/lintplus) and Idea if I'm at my desktop.

  • lintplus

    An improved linting plugin for the lite text editor.

  • LiteIDE

    LiteIDE is a simple, open source, cross-platform Go IDE.

    If this is the kind of thing you are interested in, I would strongly recommend LiteIDE:

    http://liteide.org/en/

    https://github.com/visualfc/liteide/releases

    It's actively developed, FOSS (LGPL), native C++ (Qt), runs on Windows/macOS/Linux, supports go.mod, and uses gocode/gotools for intellisense instead of gopls. It has integrated debugging, go to definition/usages, and some refactoring support.
