Named edwood in celebration of the formative influence of Ed Wood on Plan9 and the truth of ed-iting.
Note that on unix systems, Edwood (as with Acme) requires by default some
infrastructure from plan9port:
fontsrv. (Note that many other
9pfuse that contribute to Edwood's utility
are also found in plan9port.) So, you'll want to
install plan9port first, unless
you choose to use the more experimental pure-Go Edwood described below.
On Windows, plan9port is never used. On unix systems, plan9port is not
used only when the
mux9p tags are used:
go get -u -tags 'duitdraw mux9p' github.com/rjkroege/edwood
Duitdraw can use TTF fonts or compressed Plan 9 bitmap fonts. If the font name is empty, the Go Font is used. Example usage:
edwood # Use Go font at 10pt edwood -f @12pt -F @12pt # Go font at 12pt edwood -f /usr/share/fonts/TTF/[email protected] -F /usr/share/fonts/TTF/[email protected] edwood -f $PLAN9/font/lucsans/euro.8.font -F $PLAN9/font/lucm/unicode.9.font
To build Edwood on Plan 9, use 9fans.net/go PR#28:
hget https://github.com/rjkroege/edwood/archive/master.tar.gz | tar xvz cd edwood-master go mod edit -replace '9fans.net/go=github.com/fhs/[email protected]' go build ./edwood
Contributions are welcome. Just submit a pull request and we'll review the code before merging it in.
Have thoughts? Questions? Want to talk about Edwood (or Acme and other related Plan9 things)? If so, I've now enabled Edwood GitHub Discussions.
Edwood has reached the useful milestone (v0.1) and should serve as drop-in replacement for Plan9 Port Acme. (But probably with different bugs.) Please file issues if Acme client apps don't work with Edwood or if your favourite Acme feature doesn't work.
