  • helix

    A post-modern modal text editor.

    I'm admittedly not too familiar with the UI code, but it is associated with graphics.rs, view.rs, and tree.rs. graphics.rs contains the layout primitives. view.rs contains the View struct which is the view state of each Document; it is often used to find the Document currently in focus. tree.rs is complex and it handles the actual layout. How this is rendered is up to the dependent crate, but in helix-term we define a Component trait which is registered with the Compositor. It iterates over each Component and renders it.

  • Rhai

    Rhai - An embedded scripting language for Rust.

    We were also considering https://crates.io/crates/rhai. Ultimately, we don't want to face the burden of maintaining a language should it get abandoned.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • telescope.nvim

    Find, Filter, Preview, Pick. All lua, all the time.

    Do you have a plan how to make all configurations of the editor introspectable (or ideally editable and storable for later lookup [say for project-specific bindings/language-specific ones])? This is a big pain in neovim, where default bindings are not searchable. For inspiration: https://github.com/nvim-telescope/telescope.nvim is extremely useful, since it provides introspection into many things.

  • rune

    An embeddable dynamic programming language for Rust. (by rune-rs)

    From my experience, I've enjoyed using https://github.com/rune-rs/rune. Sadly it has the same issues as Rhai in that it has a higher chance of it being abandoned relative to a lisp / Lua.

  • RustPython

    A Python Interpreter written in Rust

    One good choice might be RustPython, which compiles to WASM.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
