Tedit is a git based development environment. When I say git based I mean you don't edit files on disk. You edit git databases directly. Visually it looks much like a traditional editor complete with file tree and editor pane. Under the hood, you are browsing the git database graph and creating new nodes and updating the root reference whenever you make a change.
Install at the Chrome Web Store
Hacking on Tedit

First, Tedit is a self-hosting compiler / editor / platform. This means you need Tedit to build Tedit. Go get the chrome store version if you haven't already.

- If you don't have a github token handy, create a new one at https://github.com/settings/tokens/new
- Launch the pre-built version of Tedit and using the context menu (right-click) in the empty pane to the left, select "Clone Github Repo"
creationix/tedit(or your fork if you want write access) in the first field and paste your token in the last.

- Select a parent folder (I usually do Desktop) and a name for the target (I like
- Watch the save icon spin while it exports the files to disk.
- When done, open Chrome to chrome://extensions, enable developer mode, and add the exported folder as an unpacked extension.
- Launch the generated version of tedit. I recommend changing the color of this second version using
Control+Bto tell them apart.
