Yi is a text editor written and extensible in Haskell. The goal of Yi is
to provide a flexible, powerful and correct editor core dynamically
scriptable in Haskell. 

Yi as it stands implements most of vi by default.  Keybindings for vim
and nano are also provided. Other editor interfaces can be written by
the user to extend Yi, through lexer specifications.

Yi uses hs-plugins for runtime configuration via Haskell source, and to
allow components of the editor to be dynamically recompiled without
needing to restart Yi. Yi is quite fast and lightweight, thanks to GHC's
excellent profiling tools.

Source and more information is available at:


Yi would not exist without the support of the members of the #haskell irc 
channel - thanks guys :)

Patches, comments, criticism welcome!
