    A modern and intuitive terminal-based text editor

    Lately I've become a big fan of Micro. It's as portable as Nano. By default it uses the same shortcuts as typical desktop programs: Ctrl-S for save, Ctrl-Q for quit, Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V for copy/paste, etc. It integrates well with Linux desktops' clipboards by optionally using xclip. Just like Nano, it can have multiple files open for easy copy/pasting between files. But the best thing of all is that its scripting/plugin system is plain old Lua 5.1.

  • GitHub repo xclip

    Command line interface to the X11 clipboard
