Welcome to http://TextEditors.org, your home for text editor reviews, analysis, and commentary by the community at large. Home of the largest collection of text editor information on the web. This site is as inclusive as possible. Any platform, any OS, any chip, any language, etc. There's plenty of room for everyone. If it's a text editor that runs on a computer, the wiki wants to document it.

This is a WikiWiki site which means that anybody can create/make/delete entries. I hope this means we will build a healthy community around the issues that matter most to us. So far, we've collected 1,844 text editors listed in the EditorIndex. -- RonPerrella
