    Micro is kinda nice and nano-y
  • Easier life with Linux
    Tools that make my life easier would be fzf, fd, exa, micro, ripgrep, bat etc.
  • What's wrong with this basic bash file

    Also, iirc the micro text editor (basically a more modern replacement for nano) has build-in support for shellcheck (meaning it will automatically "lint" your scripts when saving them) as long as you have shellcheck installed.
  • Is there a cli text editor with VSCode bindings?
    Except for the last two things, micro should support everything. There is a plugin for an explorer, but it seems to have problems with a current version of micro (https://github.com/NicolaiSoeborg/filemanager-plugin)
    The shortcuts can be customised (https://github.com/zyedidia/micro/blob/master/runtime/help/keybindings.md). You just have to be careful not to assign the same shortcut to two functions.

    BY FAR my favorite editor is micro. My color scheme is whichever one is modeled after Sublime Text; I don’t recall the exact name

  • What's your "instant love software"?

    I actually really suggest checking out micro. It's a lot like nano (get it?), but with some nice QoL improvements. You can use your mouse, it supports colors for a bunch of languages right out of the box, it's a static binary without no dependencies, there's a plugin system to extend its functionality if you wish.
  • Which code/text editor do you use?
    reddit.com/r/love2d | 2021-08-24
    Same here. Sometimes I fire up vim or micro for random things, but mostly just use emacs for everything. (Micro is Lua-scriptable, so that's cool)
  • Eget: easily install prebuilt binaries from GitHub
    Check out the second half of the "colors" documentation page (> help colors, online here) about how to write syntax files (they are just a list of regular expression rules). See here for all the built-in syntax files as examples.
  • How do I quit vim?
    In short, one should not always listen to others. Just use the programs that suit you and not those that suit others. Which is not to say that you shouldn't use vim. But if you like another editor like nano or micro more, use it. For my part, after several attempts with vim over the last 20 years, I can say with a clear conscience that vim is not for me. Or I don't for vim. Therefore I also just use another editor. In my case micro and VSCode.
  • GNU nano is my editor of choice
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-08-13
    I've been a really big fan of Micro[1]. A single binary with excellent out of the box features. Mouse mode, syntax highlighting, tabs etc
