text editing libs, tips, suggestions within opengl?

Hi all.

I’m researching for a project that involves a simple text editor in an openframeworks app, and before delving into making my own, I was wondering if people know of any libraries or code examples to make this kind of thing. I would need the typical basic features: cursor, typing, line breaks, deleting, text selection, copy&paste and little else.

kind of like these livecoding environments

fluxus and audicle are open source so I’m already having a look at the code, but I’d be grateful to hear any tips you might have to share.

thanks!
best,
jesús.

hey, i know this is an old thread but… did you succeed with this project? I’m planning on something similar and would love to know about your experience.

any code available?

cheers

Nice live coding environment you’ve set up, there.
