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 responsive, implemented as simply as possible; easy to modify and extend, or to use without doing either.

Get

Go to the releases page to download precompiled binaries for Windows and Linux. Additional functionality can be added through plugins which are available from the plugins repository. The editor can be customized by making changes to the user module.

Building

You can build the project yourself on Linux using the provided build.py script. Note that the project does not need to be rebuilt if you are only making changes to the Lua portion of the code.

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.
