Xray is an experimental Electron-based text editor informed by what we’ve learned in the four years since the launch of Atom. In the short term, this project is a testbed for rapidly iterating on several radical ideas without risking the stability of Atom. The longer term future of the code in this repository will become clearer after a few months of progress. For now, our primary goal is to iterate rapidly and learn as much as possible.
8ms: Scrolling, animations, and fine-grained interactions such as typing or cursor movement.
50ms: Coarse-grained interactions such as opening a file or initiating a search. If we can’t complete the action within this window, we should show a progress bar.
150ms: Opening an application window.
