    Here's another one with a very small footprint:

    It's the one I use every day. The executable on Windows is a little over a meg. It also works on Linux and Mac.

    I fixed my editor so that it recognizes URLs, and underlines them. Clicking on one brings up a browser on that site. I should have done that 20 years ago.

    No special syntax is required. It just works. I've since been adding URLs in comments all over my code, for references. It's marvelous.

    It could be extended to recognize filename.jpg and filename.mp3 to display or play those files, too. Again with no special syntax whatsoever. It just works.

    I still use microEmacs, which floated around the intertoobs in the 1980s. Of course, I've modified it substantially over the years, most recently adding color syntax highlighting and Unicode.

    D version:

    C version:

    The "extension language" is it's so easy to just add some code and recompile it, there's no point in adding an extension language.

    I like microEmacs a lot because I can use it remotely over a tty interface.

    Doing one yourself is fun. MicroEmacs drifted around NNTP in the 80s, and I snagged a copy and began modifying it to taste. I've been using it ever since. The latest version was ported to D:

    It's a very easy editor to understand and extend.
