I'm looking for a text editor that is powerful and extensible like emacs, but which uses .NET for the scripting language. emacs is an astonishing and amazing thing, but I use .NET all day and so I'd like an editor that I could extend using the language that's in my head, instead of LISP, which is also astonishing and amazing, but not my main skill set.

Just an FYI, the ".NET Framework" is the set of software libraries & the framework written in C# that you use to write applications in C# with. It's the equivalent of the STL to C++, you don't say you're using the STL to write your program/script, but rather, you're using C++. That being said, off-hand, I'm not aware of any C#-based text editors - see for a list of some. – Breakthrough Jan 19 '13 at 13:22
@Breakthrough There are a few others as well. – Daniel Beck Jan 19 '13 at 13:32

Maybe not as powerful as Emacs, but Notepad++ seems to support C# plugins. This package contains VS solutions for a template and a sample plugin. The plugins wiki might also come in handy.

Giving Notepad++ a shot now. It looks promising. – Joshua Frank Jan 19 '13 at 16:37
