Top 23 Editor Open-Source Projects

  • Atom

    :atom: The hackable text editor

    Project mention: Markdown editor for writing books | | 2022-07-02

    I've been using the Atom editor that whole time, but unfortunately it's being retired at the end of 2022. This is a real pity because there's a big community around the application and despite being a bit resource-hungry, it's got a lot going for it.

    Project mention: Any suggestions for a rich-text-editor in React? [More info below] | | 2022-07-02

  • Vim

    The official Vim repository

    Project mention: So, is your main editor Vim or Neovim? | | 2022-07-04

    I'm a staunch vim user for multiple decades and I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm moving to neovim. I'm liking having a meta alt-key that seem to always work, a builtin lsp, virtual text, treesitter, all features included in compilations, and while I can deal with Vim 9 script and I'm not a lua expert but I like lua and being able to use lua rocks package manager via packer is attractive too. This might be a good time to make this decision as once I start writing more in Vim 9 script it'd be more of a hassle to rewrite configuration for neovim later. I adore and owe much to Bram's contributions obviously but this thread with people trying to convince him to consider virtual text and failing was the clincher for me. Despite understanding his point, I like that neovim is more willing to accept these kind of features. Anyway if I end up not liking it, there's always plain vim to fall back on and it's far from the worst case scenario.

  • buefy

    Lightweight UI components for Vue.js based on Bulma

    Project mention: FYI | | 2022-06-22

    Encountered this issue as we're looking into solutions for migrating a Vue 2 + Buefy codebase over to Vue 3. The maintainer is actively working on Oruga, which for the most part, has a very similar api to Buefy components and is pretty close in terms of component parity. I only found out about Oruga through this pinned issue in the Buefy repo.

  • ProseMirror

    The ProseMirror WYSIWYM editor

    Project mention: Ace, CodeMirror, and Monaco: A Comparison of the Code Editors You Use in Browser | | 2022-03-14

    I did a similar analysis a year ago and came to the conclusion that ProseMirror ( was the right choice for my project. ProseMirror is an excellent toolkit for building your own rich text components and happens to also be written by the author of CodeMirror. It does not give you as quick an out of the box experience as slate (or any of the other rich text libraries out there) but its speed and flexibility is excellent.
