    What's it?

    It's an Editor based on wxPython. NewEdit uses Mixin and Plugin
    technique as its architecture. Most of its classes can be extended via
    mixin and plugin components, and finally become an integrity class at
    creating the instance. So NewEdit is very dynamic. You can write the
    new features in new files, and hardly need to modify the existing
    code. And if you want to extend the existing classes, you could write
    mixins and plugins, and this will be bound to the target class that I
    call "Slot Class". This technique will make the changes centralized
    and easily managed.

    What are its features?

    * Cross platform
    o based on wxPython, so it can run anywhere that wxPython
    works, such as: Windows, Linux.

    text, perl, ruby, css, javascript

    Text -> html, textile -> html, and you can output or view
    o Utf-8 encoding auto detect
    o Changing document encoding
    o Auto backup

    snippet. You can insert an item just by double-clicking on it. It even
    supports importing and exporting.
    * Simple project support
    o Can create a special file _project, so every file and
    folder under the folder which has the _project can be considered as a
    whole project.
