Perhaps more interesting than the editor itself is the language in which it is written, Copper. Copper is a successor to another language from the same author, Zinc, which had the unusual feature of allowing spaces in variable names.
And it’s been out there for almost two decades. I really like these projects with custom tools that are immune to trends. I reminds me of Source Navigator, an editor/tool to navigate source code using its semantic structure (as opposed to syntactic).
Do you know if the editor’s code is available somewhere on the net for online browsing, without downloading and unpacking the archive?
I’m unaware of anything like that, sorry.
Wrap neovim (or just a damn good vim emulation) and there will just be a whiff of dust where my vscode window used to be
This is…interesting? It grafts a simple tree structure onto a text file - still text, but with primitive structural navigation. It’s nowhere close to a true code structure editor, but still is a huge step up from standard text editors - modulo the features lost from not being a vim or emacs script that could take advantage of the massive ecosystems of those two editors.
This is really interesting. I looked at the documentation and I couldn’t find any info on key bindings. So I guess I will download and check it out.
I was trying to install copper but it requires copper to compile?
This is the exact thing I want, I am even trying to build something similar.
