KevEdit is a ZZT editor that was under development from 2000-2005 by Kevin Vance and Ryan Phillips. It runs under DOS, Windows, macOS, and Linux.
As of 2021 it is maintained by Kevin Vance on github. Maintenance is focused on improvements for running KevEdit on modern computers while still supporting DOS.
Binary releases are available for 32-bit DOS and 64-bit macOS, Linux, and Windows from github releases.

Building from source
$ ./bootstrap.sh # only if building from git $ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install
Creating binary artifacts
Docker containers are provided for building Linux AppImage binaries, as well as cross-compiling to macOS, Windows, and DOS. This is automated by a python build script:
$ cd inst $ ./build.py [appimage] [dos] [macos] [windows] $ ls dist
Building docker images
To build the docker images and tag them as 'latest' instead of pulling them from Docker Hub:
$ cd inst $ ./build.py -i build -t [appimage] [dos] [macos] [windows]
