Text Editor Integration

Boxes can be called directly from most editors. The editor must support filters, which basically means it must be able to pass some selected text to an external program (boxes), and replace it afterwards with the output of the external program. Most editors can do that.

Currently, we have concrete instructions on how to integrate boxes with the following text editors:
