lite is a lightweight text editor written mostly in Lua — it aims to provide something practical, pretty, small and fast, implemented as simply as possible; easy to modify and extend, or to use without doing either.
Additional functionality can be added through plugins which are available from the plugins repository; additional color themes can be found in the colors repository. The editor can be customized by making changes to the user module.
You can build the project yourself on Linux using the
or on Windows using the
build.bat script (MinGW is required).
Note that the project does not need to be rebuilt if you are only making changes
to the Lua portion of the code.
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.
