Welcome to the EDI IDE
Our aim is to create a new, native development environment for Linux that makes getting up and running easier than ever before. With so much happening on Linux both on the desktop and on mobile we want to help more developers get involved in the exciting future of open source development.
We hope to make development simple, intuitive and uncluttered. Many programs and tools suffer from "featuritis", which is an overload of options and choices. Our hope is you will find Edi's simple approach to development a welcome and visually appealing change.
View some of the new features included in the 0.7.0 release.
We've taken care to ensure Edi runs equally well across platforms. We currently have full support for Linux, macOS, FreeBSD and OpenBSD.
Here's a video of the public announcement of the EDI project at the Enlightenment Developer Day 2014 in Düsseldorf.
To get up and running with the very latest in Linux development environments just follow these simple steps!
$ git clone https://github.com/Enlightenment/edi.git $ cd edi $ meson build $ ninja -C build && ninja -C build install
We also recommend installing the Faenza icon theme as it works fits really well. You'll need to install the theme and choose "Faenza Dark" from elementary_config.
