Xray Experimental Editor


I came across this article today:

Does anyone know anything more?

It sounds rather exciting to me.


You’ll find all there is to know on its GitHub repository (surprise!) :kissing_heart:

If everything went perfectly, I could see Xray as representing Atom 2.0. But I’m not prepared to commit to that happening. Transitioning the ecosystem would still be challenging socially even if we got everything right on a technical level. For now, you can think of this as Atom’s equivalent of Servo. It’s a place to experiment with what might be possible if we make some radical changes.

The README should cover most of what we’re thinking. On a high level, it would be similarly extensible to Atom, but with much better performance and real-time collaboration baked into the core.
