Running this repo in isolation won't be very helpful. If you haven't yet, first check out the driver app. This repo is a template you can copy to create your own live apps that juggle text editor widgets. The editors support copy/paste, search, infinite undo, etc. You can't modify editor functionality live (yet?).
Some reference documentation on how to create your own apps.
This repo is a fork of lines.love, an editor for plain text where you can also seamlessly insert line drawings. Designed above all to be easy to modify and give you early warning if your modifications break something.
Install LÖVE. It's just a 5MB download, open-source and
extremely well-behaved. I'll assume below that you can invoke it using the
love command, but that might vary depending on your OS.
Run this app from the terminal, passing its directory to LÖVE
To modify it live without restarting the app each time, download the driver app. Here's an example session using a fork of this repo:

Exclusively tested so far with a US keyboard layout. If you use a different layout, please let me know if things worked, or if you found anything amiss: http://akkartik.name/contact
Both freewheeling apps and the driver for them currently benefit from being launched in terminal windows rather than by being clicked on in a desktop OS. See the driver app for details.
No support yet for Unicode graphemes spanning multiple codepoints.
No support yet for right-to-left languages.
Undo/redo may be sluggish in editor windows containing large files. Large files may grow sluggish in other ways.
If you kill the process, say by force-quitting because things things get sluggish, you can lose data.
Can't scroll while selecting text with mouse.
No scrollbars yet. That stuff is hard.
This repo is a fork of lines.love, an editor for plain text where you can also seamlessly insert line drawings. Its immediate upstream is text.love, a version without support for line drawings. Updates to it can be downloaded from the following mirrors:
Further forks are encouraged. If you show me your fork, I'll link to it here.
