    If you want a fairly powerful terminal based editor that will behave in a way that you are used to from other editors, try micro.

  • Micro question
    reddit.com/r/archlinux | 2021-05-07
    I had a quick look at the syntax files, and it sets what it should interpret as a comment, https://github.com/zyedidia/micro/blob/master/runtime/syntax/sh.yaml shows how it interprets bash files. You could try copying that and modifying to use the same syntax for .conf-files with this line:

    CMD-F "micro" returned nothing, so here is a link to a modern nano replacement: https://micro-editor.github.io
  • ctrl + x anyone?
    micro is really good for those of you who prefer nano. better mouse support including scroll wheel, text highlighting and moving, etc, better keyboard shortcuts that match what every other application in existence uses, syntax coloring, plugin system (but optional so you don't need to dick with it to do what you're normally doing with it which is edit configuration files).

  • Micro editor - clipboard xclip(?) issue
    I've been using the editor micro on ArchWSL. A few months ago I started having issues with micro not starting, or it seems that it may start, but it takes minutes for it to start. If I uninstall xclip it has fixed it, but not everytime. Every few weeks this happens and I will try various fixes and it usually resolves itself mysteriously.

  • Amp: Vi-like batteries-included terminal editor written in Rust
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-12
    Relatedly, there's an Emacs-like editor written in Rust called Zee: https://github.com/mcobzarenco/zee

    I've become used to using Micro (written in Go) for everything: https://micro-editor.github.io/

    So I haven't really used Amp or Zee much, but I do have both installed on my system just in case I get bored of Micro ;-)
