Want your text editor to look good while you code? Try Bend, an open source, text editor “dressed up to look sharp.”
Bend exploits XAML / WPF to render beautiful hardware accelerated text. The seamless tabbed bar at the top and the min/max/quit text in place of the regular buttons add to the beauty.
Bend sure looks good, but feature wise it’s still lacking. Text operation includes just copy and paste, and an on-page search tool. There are no settings or configuration options whatsoever.
This is Bend’s first Alpha release. Hopefully it will get better in subsequent releases.
