Caret Editor based on Atom?


I just came across this editor:
Caret is distributed as a Chrome browser extension with the main goal of working on Chrome books and emulating Sublime.

It looks and feels very much like a fork of Atom. Is it?


It says right on the home page:

Based on the amazing Ace editing component

So while it looks and feels like Atom, it doesn’t appear to be based on Atom.
