λiquid vs Neovim: What are the differences?
λiquid: Vim and Emacs-inspired editor written in Clojure. Clojure Text Editor, for editing clojure code and markdown. Written entirely in Clojure with inspiration from Emacs and Vim; Neovim: Vim's rebirth for the 21st century. Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to: simplify maintenance and encourage contributions, split the work between multiple developers, enable the implementation of new/modern user interfaces without any modifications to the core source, and improve extensibility with a new plugin architecture.
λiquid and Neovim can be primarily classified as "Text Editor" tools.
Some of the features offered by λiquid are:
- Fluidable - Embed your code into λiquid or λiquid into your code
- Dependency free - Everything is pure Clojure
- Translatable - Tiny core, simple model, no tricks
On the other hand, Neovim provides the following key features:
- More powerful plugins
- Better GUI architecture
- First-class support for embedding
λiquid and Neovim are both open source tools. It seems that Neovim with 32K GitHub stars and 2.33K forks on GitHub has more adoption than λiquid with 704 GitHub stars and 26 GitHub forks.
