Prymatex Text Editor
--------------------

What is Prymatex
================

Prymatex is a simple and flexible text editor. It's written in PyQt4 and
it's main aim is to support TextMate bundles.

Why Prymatex?
=============

There are *enough* text editors out there, and many of them are
focused on writing code, just to name a few, Notepad++, Kate, Gedit,
Scribes, etc.

These editors are great, but the way they are way they are extended is
complex for non C/C++ programmers (although this is changing gradually).
That's where TextMate comes into place. It allows the user to define syntaxes, 
snippets, macros and commands in a very simple way, using 
shell scripting, Ruby, Python, PHP or any other tool wich can handle
shell variables and stdin/stdout pipes.

There are a lots of these extensions (actually called Bundles) maintained by
enthusiasts. From Ruby on Rails, to OpenGL programming, these bundles come
with 3 basic components:

    * **Syntax** An extensible syntax format (allowing inclusion/usage, ie: PHP includes HTML and JS)

    * **Commands** They're like what we all know as marcros

    * **Snippets** Pieces of text that can be tirggered in certain situations

    * **Templates** File templates
