A toy text editor in Tcl/Tk for educational purposes.
ToyEd is a toy text editor made for fun and learning. It's not meant for serious use, but rather to be studied and built upon.
ToyEd is written in 700 lines of Tcl/Tk (see below), but has many expected features:
ToyEd is open source under the MIT license. See source code:
As of 6 october 2023, the code seems to work right, but hasn't been tested much. Please back up your data.
The user interface should be fairly obvious. See also:
Running ToyEd from source requires Tcl/Tk 8.6 or newer, with Tklib. Both are available on most Linux distributions, or else from the tcl-lang.org website.
Recommended screen resolution: 800x600.
ToyEd was born from the experience of developing Scrunch Edit TT, and reuses most code from it.
You can usually find me on IRC, in the #ctrl-c channel of tilde.chat, or else on Mastodon. Would love to hear from you.
