What is Lite XL?

Lite XL is a lightweight text editor written mostly in Lua — it aims to provide something practical, pretty, small and fast, implemented as simply as possible; easy to modify and extend, or to use without doing either. Lite XL has support for high DPI displays on Windows and Linux and it supports retina displays on macOS. Additional functionality can be added through plugins.

Finally. A simple to assimilate IDE, which is actually lite and resources, and isn't just another electron-based one.

Looks like a cool and lightweight IDE / text editor. I will watch this project if there will be a integrated plugin and theme support coming.

I'm using it for fast, single-file edit - when there's no need for opening a project in heavy VSCodium.
