Why haven't I ever seen one edition

I'm not that much into programming, so for the past couple of months I've been happy with leafpad or nano. However, I've started using scite, it's pretty comfy. What do you use, /g/?

I tried using vim once, but it was just overwhelming, like dwarf fortress

vim for editing text and vscode+vscodevim/idea+ideavim for programming

sorry even though that is labelled vim it's actually visual studio code

the difference is that after you use both of them for a month, the ux in dwarf fortress is still fucking shit even though you manage to get by but the ux in vim is godlike and you feel as if you had magic text transformation powers

Just start with a very small subset. Use hjkl, i, e and o only until you're comfortable with them and start building from there.

For files all you need is :e for edit, :w for save, and :q! when you really mean it.
>>
>>60486938
oh, and :sp for splitting, :vs for vertical splitting, and ctrl+w w for moving between the splits.

>>60486799

4 years of vim, then switched to emacs and used it for 8 years. Currently using atom more and more. Still using vim for system administration.

I just can't imagine how anyone would actually switch from emacs to atom. It's just unreal to me
>>
>>60487014
Didn't switch. Just introduced it in my company so the employees use an simple to use editor which works the same on any OS. I still use emacs for private projects.

They like it. It's mainly Python and Typescript, HTML, CSS stuff.
>>
>>60486984
If you want to get into splitting, the keyboard shortcuts are probably the better way to go. All of them start with Ctrl+w
Ctrl+w s = horizontal split
Ctrl+w v = vertical split
Ctrl+w <direction> = switch to window in that direction
Ctrl+w +/- = increase/decrease window height
Ctr+w </> = increase/decrease window width.
>>
>>60487412
Yeah, was focused on getting as few commands as possible, but add those on a post it note and pin it to your screen and you're golden
>>
>>60486799
Emacs.
It was a pain to configure, but now my setup is so comfy that I can't imagine using anything else.
>>
>>60487539
Nothing beats emacs
>>
>>60487137
i honestly switched for the same reason
it was Atom or Sublime, but i liked the package management more in Atom

I considered Sublime but Atom did win because it's open source.

And plan 9 would be Unix done right but does it work outside of virtual machines?

Unix is done right tho - just too archaic. plan 9 is the update.
It's usable, 9front creator uses it, it was used more often before for network/calculation purposes

It's not vim it's Visual Studio Code. It has a pretty good vim plugin though.
>>
>>60487014
I switched from vim to visual studio code. The integrated debugging and intellisense made it worth it and the vim plugin is good enough.

TextWrangler (or BBEdit if you feel like shelling out cash) on OS X is goddamn stellar.

Notepad++ on Windows is probably the best you're gonna get without paying any money. There are better options that cost money, but I don't use Windows enough to care. Way back in the XP days I did shell out money for Texturizer, and did most of my coding in there. It was comfy as fuck, though became abandoneware by the time Vista was released, and it doesn't work well with that or anything newer.

Vim with a proper GUI (like GVim) and gEdit on LiGNUx are rock solid. Could be comfier, and I've tried some other editors that were much better which are unfortunately no longer maintained (namely mEdit and Scribes), but whatever.

I hear Sublime is great on most platforms, and I think Brackets and Atom are pretty neat (though pretty buggy).

There. These are your options OP. Or Emacs.

DrRacket for Racket, vim for everything else.

Using vim with some customization. Not sure I eve going to switch to anything else.

The one thing I am working on is a search and replace in a directory tree.

nvi handles my needs pretty well. I don't program much though.

Are ides a meme?

I like pycharm but it feels bloated

>>60494966
Well, you certainly don't need one. They just make some things easier like autocompleting names, checking syntax, etc.

Im an engineer looking to code shit that will automate boring parts of my job.

Sublime for general text editing
Brackets for webdev shit

All else please leave

Oh and Nano if you absolutely must use CLI

Anything written in java is a meme

I use notepad++ for simple regex manipulation/looking at text files

Vim when i am using a terminal

Eclipse with a vim plugin for writing code

>>60486799
I used to use Geany, but then I switched to Atom. Even though Atom is pretty slow starting up, my computer is powerful enough to handle it. I'm thinking of switching to VS Code though, but as it is a creation of Microsoft it is pretty risky. Embrace,extend, extinguish after all is their best strategy after all.

>Linux obsoleted Unix

Isn't "being a Unix" only a certification for an OS that adheres to Unix standards? I think OS X and Solaris are Unix, while FreeBSD isn't (because nobody paid for the certification). A GNU/Linux OS maybe can be a Unix, or even a Windows can be (if they adhere to the standards and somebody pays for the certification process).

I never fully understood why somebody developed a new kernel instead of trying to make BSD mainstream and why GNU adapted Linux instead of continuing the work on Hurd or using the BSD kernel. It's probably because of the license (GPL2 vs. BSD).

Nevertheless Plan9 sets new standards in adhering to true Unix philosophy. As I understood nearly everything is a file/device (i.e. windows of the WM). So you can use string manipulation tools like sed, awk and grep to send content to windows or similar crazy stuff.

so the world runs on memes. checks out

Im using this one: https://github.com/hkhoi/vimrc :D
>>
>>60486799
I used to use Q edit in the day.
>>
>>60497430
Because despite what BSD apologists say, the BSD license is too risky and at the time of the Linux creation the BSD kernel already had problems of copyright.
