Sooooo... are we going to have a plugin system or no? :)

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/HelixEditor

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • github-orgmode-tests

    This is a test project where you can explore how github interprets Org-mode files

    Here's a story like you're describing above; this guy was not a programmer at all, but a writer, and was looking for a tool that fit his needs better than the word processors he was using. So he did some research and found that the org-mode layer fit his needs exactly. There is now also the NeoOrg plugin for neovim so there's no problem at all implementing whatever you need using a plugin system.

  • helix

    A post-modern modal text editor.

    The suspense is killing me already! I've been following this thread for a little bit now and still haven't seen a clear confirmation we will have one, and indeed there are some people in there saying we shouldn't have one at all, which would be insanely disappointing imo.

  • 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.

  • Rhai

    Rhai - An embedded scripting language for Rust.

  • RustPython

    A Python Interpreter written in Rust

    I’m still hoping out hope for something like RustPython https://rustpython.github.io. Using Python to extend SublimeText over the years has been amazing. I have tons of little helpers that were dirt simple to write. I would love to see Helix adopt a known and popular language that’s easy for anyone to use rather than something obscure like Rhai.

  • magit

    It's Magit! A Git Porcelain inside Emacs.

  • neorg

    Modernity meets insane extensibility. The future of organizing your life in Neovim.

    Here's a story like you're describing above; this guy was not a programmer at all, but a writer, and was looking for a tool that fit his needs better than the word processors he was using.
