Hekkelman Programmatuur


After selling Pepper, it soon became clear a new text editor was needed. And so Japi came to life. It started with the source code from Pe (which was open sourced) and has had quite a few make overs by now. Originally it was a Mac OS Carbon application, soon ported to Gtk. After a major rewrite it is now an only halfway feature complete Windows 7 application.

The Linux and FreeBSD port was feature complete and stable. I offered it to be included in the FreeBSD ports collection, but it was never picked up and so I retracted it. I considered offering it to Debian, but my initial experience trying to get libzeep included made me drop that idea too.

And so it is currently a private project that's not very useful to others.
