Why?
====

If you are wondering why medit is written, there are two answers:
1) It wasn't a decision to write a text editor. It happened during
more than one year of GGAP development. And no, there is no usable
GTK text editor component.
2) Try it: if you like it, you know why. If you don't like it, ask
vim/emacs guys why don't they use emacs/vim.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
