GTK frontend, written in Rust for the xi editor.

gxi is a work in progress!



You need to have the Rust compiler installed. I recommend using rustup.

Installing dependencies on Debian/Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev

Installing dependencies on Redhat

sudo yum install gtk3-devel

Enabling the syntect syntax highlighting plugin

Running these commands will put the syntect plugin into your ~/.config/xi/plugins directory.

git clone
cd xi-editor/rust/syntect-plugin/
make install

Running gxi

git clone
cd gxi
cargo run
