Overview

Ginkgo Editor

A (heavily) WIP text editor entirely in Rust

Logo Image

Ginkgo is how I learned Rust!

It is a spin-off of my previous C++ text editor, JED, which itself was a spin-off of the popular miniature text editor Kilo

Features

Ginkgo supports many of Kilo's features, such as CTRL commands for saving and quitting. Ginkgo includes Vim features such as normal/insert modes as well as an ever-growing list of keybindings:

  • o/O (open)
  • i/I (insert)
  • a/A (append)
  • h/j/k/l (movement)
  • Esc/CTRL^c (exit insert)

Ginkgo also includes mouse cursor support!

The Ginkgo tree

Ginkgo trees are beautiful. But anyone who has ever been around one knows that they have a very "distinct" smell. Equivalently, this text editor aims to be beautiful and simplistic. But since I am using this project as an outlet for learning rust, like the Ginkgo tree some of Ginkgo's code may smell a little off... It will continue to be a work of progress as it undergoes future revisions! And it remains open to suggestions and collaboration.
