History was that:
At some point I realised that I can't use old TextMorph anymore. For my
project I needed flexible editors which allows me implement validation,
mask fields, secrete fields and others. It was almost impossible to hack
old text morph to support these features.
I read about Igor project TxText. It included only model at that time which
was very similar to my ideas. So I decided to implement editors on top of
it. I was try to not touch model itself and only fix bugs. But during
development I saw all weakness of model and I start refactoring with idea
of active text which announces any changes.
And in same time Igor returned to this project. He saw all problems with
model and started refactoring too. But his idea was opposite to my.
At the end I forked my refactored version of TxText into separate project
Twisty. So I think current TxText not includes any my code.
