MyMateSummaryThis is both a school project and an old itch that I have to scratch :)
The purpose of MyMate is to combine the best features of Textmate, Emacs and Netbeans.
C++ would be fast, but a good VM gives you things for free, like a good garbage collector, memory defragmentation, and scripting support, not to mention that in C++ you often end up using seven competing string classes .NET was a really good alternative, providing faster warm-up, and a nice language to work with (C# 3.0), but I don't feel comfortable with the cross-platform support provided by the Mono development tools. The Mono VM looks good, but Monodevelop is not there yet, and with Java I get really good tools like Netbeans and Eclipse ... that are on par with Visual Studio (quality wise) ... and if I choose to use IntelliJ IDEA which is commercial, Java tools are multiplatform, and my home workstation is Linux, while my work laptop is Mac OS X. Other platforms/languages are not mainstream, and it would have been hard to find contributers (one of the reason I am using an open-source license) Other tools/libraries used:
QTJambi ... Java Swing is awfully ugly and slow for interfaces Antlr 3 ... for parsing formats (like Property Lists from TextMate's bundles) and later for adding Intellisense support StatusI am just starting to work on it, meaning that little to no code is available right now, but the project will flourish in the next 2 months.
I hope to live to my expectations and provide something of value.
