Web vi

Web vi is a project I started to build a browser based version of vi using a canvas element for the drawing. It is beta quality at the moment and the main thing to do is to try it on the IE9 version of canvas (a pain because it means I need to install windows somewhere).

The project is in googlecode here:


Here is a demo of webvi in action:

The code to embed it in a page:

<script language="Javascript" src=""></script>
<textarea rows="10" cols="80" id="webvi-textarea" class="webvi">Some text here.</textarea>
