  • textadept

    Textadept is a fast, minimalist, and remarkably extensible cross-platform text editor for programmers.

  • Textadept checks almost all the boxes but isn't in most distributions yet

  • micro-editor

    A modern and intuitive terminal-based text editor

  • Micro is kinda nice and nano-y

  • coc.nvim

    Nodejs extension host for vim & neovim, load extensions like VSCode and host language servers.

  • On my local system I use Neovim with coc.nvim for linting and auto/tab complete. It’s the closest I’ve found to VS Code. You can customize keybindings in vim, but the commands for basics aren’t that hard to remember.

  • Notepad3

    Notepad like text editor based on the Scintilla source code. Notepad3 based on code from Notepad2 and MiniPath on code from metapath. Download Notepad3:

  • I prefer the lighter replacements (notepad2, notepad3, metapad) on Windows, simply because Notepad++ seems to always have something to update when I start it on a server. Otherwise it's fine, but not a CLI editor.

  • how-to-exit-vim

    Below are some simple methods for exiting vim.
