A lightweight text editor written in Lua

Overview

lite is a lightweight text editor written mostly in Lua — it aims to provide something practical, pretty, small and fast, implemented as simply as possible; easy to modify and extend, or to use without doing either.

Customization

Additional functionality can be added through plugins which are available from the plugins repository; additional color themes can be found in the colors repository. The editor can be customized by making changes to the user module.

Building

You will need:

  • Lua 5.2 and libraries
  • SDL2
  • A c11 compiler (gcc or clang)
  • make

To build run make, to install make install with root privileges and to uninstall make uninstall also with root privileges. To clean the mess run make clean.

Contributing

Any additional functionality that can be added through a plugin should be done so as a plugin, after which a pull request to the plugins repository can be made. In hopes of remaining lightweight, pull requests adding additional functionality to the core will likely not be merged. Bug reports and bug fixes are welcome.
