      We’re building something (http://wym.io) which happens to provide most of Lambda’s (and {webscript,hook}.io’s) features (sorry!), with a whole host of (shortly open source) features and a much bigger picture (think a whole new language) alongside.

      I think we’ve minimised xkcd #927 (standards) and lock-in as effectively as possible.

      I won’t claim more here until I can show you, but there’s a solid, functioning demo at http://wym.io/ and we’re only a few weeks away from a lot more. We’re really throwing our lives at this, so do expect results. :)

        Sounds really interesting … I joined your announce list!

          Good to hear! We’ll get more to you soon!

          Having been on so many ‘-announce’ lists over the years, I can’t think why I didn’t call ours that. Hm.

      I remember something similar released a while ago – the idea was you could attach Lua scripts to, say, button clicks and such and also keep some state around. Anyone remember that that was?

      Intriguing, if cryptic. But from where I sit, this is just a project named “Atom” hosted on Github. Is there any more information on it, something that connects it to Github besides the Github-employed members?

        Answering myself: https://github.com/atom/welcome/blob/master/lib/welcome.md

        You are one of the first people to use GitHub’s new text editor!

          What is the non-mac equivalent of cmd-shift-P?

          Wow, try clicking on the docs link. It takes you to a GitHub app auth page for your email.

        Also worth noting:
