Ekstra - Matt Whipple

The most ambitious and self-indulgent project as part of my latest tool reboot is the creation of my old text editor called Ekstra. This was started by following the “How To Build Your Own Text Editor” (“Build Your Own Text Editor” 2021) tutorial.

I’ll be rapidly diverging from the initial code as I modularize the pieces and work to add increased robustness and flexibility. I’ll also be working on porting everything to Rust so the effort will likely shift by the summer of 2021 to be a mix of porting and extension.
