Despin

Despin is a text editor for programmers. It is based on Mozilla Chromeless and embeds the awesome Ace editor, providing traditional editor functionality for local files.

Prerequisites

You need to have Chromeless downloaded in order to run Despin. You can get it by typing the following command:

git clone git://github.com/mozilla/chromeless.git

Download

In order to download Despin you have to clone the repository and fetch the submodules:

git clone git://github.com/past/despin.git
git submodule update --init --recursive

Running Despin

If you downloaded chromeless and despin in sibling directories, you can run despin by typing the folowing command in the despin directory:

../chromeless/chromeless .

Otherwise you will have to substitute the full path to the chromeless script in your system in the command above.
