Jade Editor

Emacs-like text editor for X11

Jade is an Emacs-like text editor that implements most basic Emacs functionality, but is not intended as a straight clone. The Lisp dialect is intended to be compatible with Emacs Lisp, but the interface to the editor internals is not, due to differing philosophies behind the implementations. As a result, most Lisp code written for GNU Emacs will not work; basic GNU Emacs emulation interfaces may be added in the future. Commands are implemented in Lisp, which allows for comprehensive customisation and extension.
