{Redcar}

http://redcareditor.com/

Description

A Ruby text editor.

  • written in Ruby from the ground up
  • runs on JRuby (a fast, compatible Ruby implementation)
  • is cross-platform (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows)
  • highly extensible

Some Redcar features:

  • supports Textmate themes and snippets
  • split screen mode
  • syntax checking for many languages
  • built in REPL for Ruby, plugins for Groovy, Clojure and Mirah.

Some (current) limitations:

  • Only supports UTF-8 file encodings (and therefore ASCII)
