Do you think we are missing an alternative of AvalonEdit or a related project?
AvalonEdit is the name of the WPF-based text editor in SharpDevelop 4.x "Mirador" and beyond. It is also being used in ILSpy and many other projects.
How to build
AvalonEdit is targeting netcoreapp3.0, net40 and net45 TFMs. Because of netcoreapp3.0 you must have .NET Core 3.0 SDK installed on your machine. Visual Studio 2019 16.3 and up is required for working with the solution (global.json will select the proper SDK to use for building for you).
To build the Documentation you need to install Sandcastle from https://github.com/EWSoftware/SHFB/releases (currently validated tooling is v2019.4.14.0)
The build of the Documentation can take very long, please be patient.
