  • helix

    A post-modern modal text editor.

  • In general, the benefit of a UI would be that you can draw things you can't draw when constrained to a grid of characters, and you can have interactivity you couldn't otherwise have. It would be more like VS Code or Zed but with the Helix editing model underneath.

    (Worth noting one of the maintainers said only a couple months ago: "this is really far away right now as helix needs large architectural changes before writing a GUI is even feasible/a good idea."[1])

  • zed

    Code at the speed of thought – Zed is a high-performance, multiplayer code editor from the creators of Atom and Tree-sitter.

  • I've heard that Zed's vim mode is very good, although I'm not a vim user so I can't confirm.

  • helix-gpui

    helix gpui frontend

  • shelix

    Tmux based IDE around the Helix editor

  • To palliate that, advanced users could try this IDE that does solve all these problems, Helix and Tmux as an IDE in the shell: https://github.com/webdev23/shelix

  • neovide

    No Nonsense Neovim Client in Rust

  • Have you looked at Neovide? It's very similar to this, a cross-platform Rust based front end for neovim. Neovide is really quite nice it's beautifully rendered.

    https://neovide.dev

    My primary use case for Neovide (vs neovim running in Wezterm/kitty/Alacritty) is simply so I can Alt/Cmd-TAB to it quickly as I usually run with many terminal windows open and it's somewhat of a chore to locate the one with nvim in it, whereas with Neovide I have a separate app with an icon in the dock/sysmenu to switch to.

  • evil

    The extensible vi layer for Emacs.

  • Emacs is whatever you want it to be, and it has wonderful modal editing packages such as evil-mode[1] - which surpasses the editing system from vi that it is based on - and Meow[2]

  • meow

    Yet another modal editing on Emacs / 猫态编辑 (by meow-edit)

  • Emacs is whatever you want it to be, and it has wonderful modal editing packages such as evil-mode[1] - which surpasses the editing system from vi that it is based on - and Meow[2]

  • doomemacs

    An Emacs framework for the stubborn martian hacker

  • Having used evil-mode as my main driver for years, I can confirm that it truly works as expected. Requires some setup though. I used https://github.com/doomemacs/doomemacs to do the heavy lifting though.

  • helix-config

  • There's already a plugin for it: https://github.com/mattwparas/helix-config/blob/master/cogs/...
