Do you have some info/link to your editor?
I'm currently writing in D using GtkD
(http://code.dlang.org/packages/gtk-d), and using Cairo to
manage the text drawing.
It you have thoses dependencies already then why not use
gtksourceview for the editor stuff? It took me quite some time to
do that ie. undo/redo system, text layout, highlight system,
navigation, text anchors, efficient text and line gapbuffers etc.
You get that for free with gtksourceview.
It will not have a menu, just a console at bottom. I'm wanting
it to be simple with some features that I like most and the
keybindings that fit in my Dvorak layout better.
The Menu button will be different in the final version and maybe
hidden by default.
I am used to emacs keybindings myself but have designed it around
being able to use either emacs, vi or standard bindings.
I'll release it at some point, but I want to polish more before
I known the feeling :)
