Anyone pre-order the new Apple with the M1 chip – we gotta get Kakoune building on it!
I think it will just work. ARM these days is even little-endian, so the protocol should be compatible same.
Kakoune does already build and run on ARM, I have a small ARM server I use as an IRC bouncer and Kakoune works there. Additionally Kakoune does work on Android which is almost exclusively ARM based.
