  • xi-editor

    A modern editor with a backend written in Rust.

    A backend server for a text editor seems like a really great idea. For example, I'm trying to make an API client and even having an embedded JSON editor would be a lot easier with something like xi. Now that the xi GitHub repo is no longer maintained are there any projects trying a similar approach?

    Not sure if this is what you want, but helix is quite cool.
