Apologies for presenting a one year old App, but I just discovered it. Besides Light Table latest version 0.4 is just 2 months old.
A new concept of how an IDE should look like, targeting Web Developing. It looks amazing, it is worth to download and try it- even if you don’t do programming. You can use it as a text editor (but doesn’t wrap lines).
Open Source & Licence
Light Table is being in Alpha Version and code is not available right now. According to Chris Granger (author of LT), Light Table will be released as Open Source when ready, with a license based on a “pay what you can/what you believe it is worth” model for individuals.
Is it usable?
Yes, and it is extremely fast! A video that demonstrates some of the features of Light Table ;)
Installation and Use
You need to download the binaries for your platform (x86 or x64), unzip it and then just double click on <LightTable> executable. If it doesn’t start, try from Console to inspect the issue.
In Fedora 19 Light Table was complaining for not finding <libudev.so.0>. That is because Fedora 19 ships a newer Udev library. To solve this without compiling an older Udev and setting paths, you can just create a symbolic link
For 32 bit use </usr/lib/> path.
$ cd /usr/lib64
$ sudo ln -s libudev.so.1 libudev.so.0
As a side note, before start with Light Table read their docs. There is no way to understand how it works without Docs, even if you have used every other IDE.
There are some more info in their KickStart Campaign who managed to collect $316,720 (goal was $300.000) that are not referred into their site (as licensing).
There is also a GitHub Page, for fileing issues. Source Code is not available yet.
