The first application

I want to build an application that runs on top of JSFS because it’s hard to describe just how powerful it is abstractly; but I struggled for a long time deciding what to write first. Then the obvious answer finally struck me: an editor. An editor (and more specifically, a “programmer”) would allow further development to occur within JSFS itself, simultaneously serving as a demonstration as well as an demanding application to drive the system forward. I feel really dumb for not realizing this earlier, it’s kind of the go-to starting point for every general-purpose operating system. - Jason
