This is my first text editor, with syntax highlighting and a file explorer like atom has. I am not working on this anymore, so just expect unexpected updates.
Download:
pastebin get WeQgf8A7 atom

The program has a quite nice design, but there are some bugs i have noticed:
  • Keywords are highlighted, even if they are a part of a word (for example: color (at the end: or))
  • Comments encapsulated in strings are highlighted (e. g. "--")
  • There is no horizontal scroll
  • you can't open a folder
  • It flickers when there are many changes per second

The download command is not complete: you've forgotten "atom".

Nevertheless, the idea sounds good.

Thanks for the reply! Yes, horizontal scroll would be extremely helpful and actually super easy to implement, but I just don't have the inspiration to work on it, but if there where people would really use it then I would do it.
