Sounds like Emacs is what you are looking for nonetheless. Emacs isn't bloatware, Emacs is basically a software platform that just so happens to ship with packages that are an editor, a mail client, a few small games, and a package manager.


Well, I'd still rather use an editor that doesn't require me to add a "software platform"...


But you don't. That's kinda the thing. By virtue of being mostly implemented in the same language you use to extend and configure it, it is inherently a "software platform". It is a similar approach that is only now picked up again by editors like Atom.
