No new release, but progress

Mikael Johansson  — 1 year, 7 months ago
I have decided to wait with any more releases until I have switched to the new version as my main editor. It feels better to release something I have tested alot my self.

But the progress is good. I now have:

unlimted undo/redo
Can now open directories, not only single files. And quickly move between files.
I can now compile from the program, and have small snippets in the F-keys.

Next up is some small fixes, and tab completion.

Glyphin rebooted!

Mikael Johansson  — 1 year, 7 months ago
Glyphin is back! And it's more useless then ever!!

After many months of falling down different rabbit holes (architectural and performance), I have nothing of value to show, but I have learned a lot. Now its time to actually get pragmatic and productive.

This is the very first release of the completely rebooted version of Glyphin. The plan is to release often, and to let the community have a say about how to shape Glyphin early in the development. This will help me to focus on things that is truly useful.

The first release is available on patreon, for ...

It has now been one month since I wrote "crossroads" and decided to completely rewrite Glyphin.
I am realy happy with the result so far. Everything is being rewritten, witch makes it possible to improve just about everything, especially my future workflow possibilites.

It it still way to early to say when Alpha 2 will be released, but my wild quess is within 1-2 months from now. I will work on it every day until it is released.

Some improvements that already exist in Alpha 2:

- Very improved keyboard support. Should be able to handle keyboards from any country without ...

To program an editor is hard. Really hard, since so many people are used to so many different things.

Working with Glyphin has come to a place where some things are just too hard to do. Way harder than they should be. I know how to solve it, but that means I have to restart the project. It means that Glyphin releases will come to a halt for now, but it will lead to a much stronger healthier, and way more awesome Glyphin in the future. The plans are big, and I know Glyphin will get there next time.

They say that "3rd time is a charm", and when it comes to Glyphin I really feel that that is the case.
It is over 4 months since the first line started on Glyphin, and even thou that is a short time when we are developing software, Glyphin has already come a long way, thanks to what I learned from my 2 previous attempts. My first editor failed at becoming anything useful, but my second attempt, became my main editor on Linux, and even thou it was very basic, I still felt more productive in it then other editors, thanks ...
