Lumikuu Editor: realtime, collaborative text editing on top of Verse

Since last week I’ve been working on Lumikuu Editor as a tool for our Studio Lumikuu. Lumikuu Editor is a text editor for real-time collaboration. It uses the Verse protocol for the networking part. For its GUI the fine library Allegro is used.

The focus for the editor will be on the text and real-time collaboration. That means that at this time no fancy text editing features as bold, italic and such are not planned.

Nonetheless, the editor already is in pretty much a usable state. I attach an early release to this blog in a zip that also contains a Verse server and a scene graph editor called Connector. The attached file: lumikuu-editor-earlydev.

Check my screen casts for an idea of how it works:
