Micro Terminal Editor

(1/2) > >>

AIR:
I do a lot of my coding via a ssh session, and just started using the Micro terminal editor.

Some would say I should just use VIM, but while I've used it I wanted something lighter, single binary, and cross platform.


It has different themes, supports cut/paste, mouse, and some other stuff.

John:
Does it run on the RPi and allow custom syntax highlighting?

AIR:
Yes, it runs on the Pi.

To add custom highlighting, you will probably need to recompile it (it's a GO app).

It supports a bunch of languages out of the box already...

John:
It seems to lean towards Lua for scripting.

I like JED more as a console editor.

AIR:
For the languages that I code in, JED is too limiting.  Plus full mouse support only seems to work in Linux, since you need gpm for the mouse.

JED doesn't do Go, Nim, Powershell, C#, and others that I use.  So while it may be cross platform, it's not especially cross language out the box.
