Hi, my name is Per Thulin and I am happy to be writing to a crowd full of handsome Vim users - my favorite kind of people!
I’ve been using Vim for longer than I can remember, but have started to feel jealous of my colleagues with their shiny new editors such as SublimeText and TextMate. Their syntax highlighting is so fast and they have tools for navigating file structures that just seem superior to anything that can be accomplished with Vim and it’s plugins.
So I’ve started a new project, an HTML5 remake of my good old Vim editor, using modern technologies such as HTML5. It’s called HappyEdit and is 100% open source and based on the Ace project worked on by Cloud9, Mozilla and others.
