Yzis is a vi-compatible editor that is composed of a generic vi engine and independent GUI. It is developed in C++ and relies on QtCore for the some of the background classes (lists and strings mainly). A KDE, Qt and ncurses gui are available. More frontends are welcome. I would be happy to see a Gtk, MFC, WxWidgets and XUL frontend added to the source tree.
For more details about requirements and build instructions, see: http://www.yzis.org/Build_Yzis
Yzis uses the CMake system to compile and install itself, just like KDE.
See the wiki documentation for help on building Yzis: http://www.yzis.org/Build_Yzis
We try to maintain the current state of the project and a planning on the wiki: http://www.yzis.org/
Most of the documentation is stored on the wiki: http://www.yzis.org . Build instructions, project status, ... . And if you are missing something, the magic of wiki allows you to add it yourself.
The documentation for developers, including design drafts and API documentation, is available from http://www.yzis.org/Developer_Documentation
