COSMIC DE: February Discussions

And we’re back! As projects have been completed and more are in progress, we’re light on things to report this time around. The Bluetooth applet joins many others in being added to COSMIC DE. There’s been discussion around decisions like how config files and widget layering should work, but most of the conversation has been around COSMIC DE’s text editor application. The UX team gathered data on what people like about existing text editors like Vim and VS Code, and they now have an initial concept for how the text editor will behave!


Once the initial designs were completed, the engineering team went about implementing those designs into a testable program:


Next up is to test and iterate until we have a polished text editor for COSMIC DE. That’s it for February, so tune in next month for more progress on our new Rust-based desktop environment!
