of aretext (the clone I'm building) syntax highlighting code! The file it's highlighting is its own implementation of go syntax highlighting 😮


@joeligj12 funny enough, I actually started the project in Rust. Then I tried to implement a B+ tree (core data structure used for storing/editing text), and ran into all the issues described here rust-unofficial.github.io/too-

Probably could have worked through it with enough unsafe blocks, but I realized I wasn't having fun anymore and switched to go 😀
