MoonEdit – a collaborative text editor which allows many users over the internet to edit the same document simultaneously.

MoonEdit was originally written by Tomasz Dobrowolski under the name Multi-Editoro when he was a student at the Gdańsk University of Technology.

Every user can modify documents at any place or time – without restriction. You can watch other people’s cursor movements in real time as they make changes. Each user writes text in their own color so you can easily tell who wrote what. Also included are a few bells & whistles, such as simulating the typing sound of a keyboard (so you know when others are making changes), an in-line equation evaluator (so you don’t need to open a separate window for a calculator), and even a rudimentary music sequencer.

MoonEdit had an edit history, and with it an infinite undo history, which could be viewed using a time slider and an undo last change button. The text added by each participant was highlighted depending on the selected syntax language.

The author also provides the option of zooming the document to scale, exporting to HTML, tracking changes, creating built-in macros, full support for Windows.

MoonEdit uses the UDP network protocol (TCP/IP family).
Default UDP port number is 32123.
