    vgedit+ (Video Game Text Editor) is a basic SDL2 text editor designed for easy use on a video game console using a controller or touch screen. The primary goal of this project is to allow you to not have to turn to another device to edit text files.

    This was originally designed for the Switch, but as it uses the Chesto UI library it also runs on Wii U! Hopefully this homebrew will help you in a pinch, or just save time going back and forth with a computer. It supports a USB keyboard and should be able to edit even large text files on the SD card. One example quick use-case of this app that I've used already is customizing the Haxchi config.txt before installing. It probably pairs well with WiiU-Shell.

    You can view the stats from hb-appstore for vgedit+ downloads across Switch vs Wii U here: https://apps.fortheusers.org/stats?apps=wiiu/vgedit,switch/vgedit (last 14 days). I find it a lot of fun to watch the same homebrew app on both consoles race like this!

    My advice having worked on this text editor is: I don't recommend making your own text editor! It seemed a lot easier of a problem than it turned out to be! (Line wrapping, large files, cursor positioning, tabs?!?)

    Awesome work! Is it possible to edit file names?

    Edit: I see Wii U-shell does that already

    nice, could become really handy at some point and it has a great UI.

    If i can suggest any homebrew idea to the Wii U scene it would be a fully working lua interpreter, would make homebrew dev much easier :)
