lite is a reasonably nice programmer's text editor written in Lua. https://github.com/rxi/lite
Last night I decided it might be fun to try to port it to love2d. Today it mostly works? It's bogging down sometimes for reasons I don't understand, some (but not all!) of the icon glyphs aren't showing up correctly. But it can edit itself!
Trying to think of another time in my life where running a program under a profiler magically fixed a performance problem. (Turns out: the profiler was regularly running the garbage collector, and my weird performance problem was caused by my code unnecessarily generating huge amounts of garbage)
