The principal aim of the LucED project is to develop a text editor
with the following features:

LucED, the Lucid Editor. LucED is an open source text editor with a
graphical X11 user interface. Although the program is in its early
development stage
A simple and minimalistic, but powerful user interface that is similar
to the NEdit text editor, but does not depend on Motif
Embedded Lua programming language for scripting and configuration
Powerful regular expressions using the PCRE library
Syntax highlighting configurable via regular expressions, similar to
the NEdit syntax highlighting but with the enhancement to use
arbitrarily nested patterns
Fast and responsive user interface: e.g. syntax highlighting is done
in the background and does not freeze the user interface, special
handling to achieve fast keyboard repeat rates
No dependencies on high-level widget toolkits in order to minimise the
requirements for the operating system

WordGrinder. A minimalist word processor written in C and Lua 5.1.

lua-ed. A clone of the Unix standard editor "ed", written in Lua.
