Xi text editor

Pretty interesting idea in here.

I wonder, would it be possible to have kakoune-like editing on the fast backend of xi?

Xi community seems to love kakoune and I believe it’s would be possible use xi has a backend for kakoune ( it support multi cursor for example ). It might not be mature enough tho.

I don’t know how the division of task works in kakoune between the client and the server, and I know that Xi is still working on that. , but I could be fun to hack around. ( that’s why I started this thread


That might be really cool

So I think monolithic architectures, perhaps ironically, are better for community. Everybody takes some responsibility for the quality of the whole.

How many times will we relearn this?

Xi community was pretty exited to use kakoune as a front-end, sad that this wont happen
