Extending Textadept

Ways to extend Textadept

General

Loading common modules

Modules that provide additional functionality available to all filetypes are by convention put in the common namespace. You can simplify loading them by using a common/init.lua file.

Overwriting existing modules

Copying an existing file in

/modules/textadept/

to

~/.textadept/modules/textadept/

will load the latter version as they have preference in the package path. Useful for example if you use completely different key commands.
