  • Suplemon

    :lemon: Console (CLI) text editor with multi cursor support. Suplemon replicates Sublime Text like functionality in the terminal. Try it out, give feedback, fork it!

  • I did also take Suplemon for a spin a while back and it was pretty nice ... not sure why I stopped using it.

  • AstroNvim

    AstroNvim is an aesthetic and feature-rich neovim config that is extensible and easy to use with a great set of plugins

  • ox

    An independent Rust text editor that runs in your terminal!

  • Ox, Nano, Zee, or Amp.

  • lite-xl

    A lightweight text editor written in Lua

  • Along with vim, I would also recommend Lite-XL, it's an insanely fast text editor, and has almost all the features that you are looking for out of the box. Some of the other features can be added, via plugins.

  • vim-sensible

    sensible.vim: Defaults everyone can agree on

  • That said, vim quite likely will need a little tweaking, in particular, in your home directory, create a .vimrcfile. Just it's presence, without any content, it will disable "compatible" which is what you want. Depending of your distro's configuration, it will enable most, if not all the features you want. For a simple guide to standard options, look at this https://github.com/tpope/vim-sensible It is packaged as a plugin, but does not need to be.
