Description (last modified by )
Emacs text editor is very extensible and customizable text editor. It supports a range of features from word processing, program development to rss reader. In background it uses Emacs Lisp interpreter to execute all functions implemented as Emacs lisp scripts. We are trying to port Emacs text editor to HelenOS. Firstly we will try to port the terminal version with minimal functionality and then we will try to add functionality to it.
What Gains and Benefits will this bring?
Currently HelenOS has "edit" as simple text editor. As much as HelenOS is moving towards becoming self-hosting, it will need some utility for writing code, publishing documentation etc. Emacs Text Editor is a great option for this purpose.
Medium to Hard
Programming in the C, Python, Emacs Lisp languages.
Working Experience in non-POSIX environment.
