I’ve used VS Code for a long time, but have recently grown weary of Microsoft’s approach to OSS. I’ve checked out VS Codium which seems like it might be a great option.

What text editor are you using?

I do not code, so take what I say in that context. I use Geany because it does many things - and a guy who won a coding competition says he uses only Geany. Geany is far lighter than Atom (which is owned now by Microsoft). Geany handles markdown fairly well and I use mostly markdown. But, plan to learn a tiny bit of code. For terminal, i use use nano or something similar called micro. Both nano and micro can open/use markdown (.md) or .txt, and, though they cannot open .rtf, if i use Ranger terminal file manager, they can show the preveiwed contents of an .rtf file, but cannot open it to edit it that way. Geany can open .rtf if it has no graphics - so text only. If there is formatting added, though, it is an ugly sight. I am testing software on a slow HDD in order to have a very light, fast system and Geany does fine on it.

I use Neovim, LiteXL, and VS Codium depending on the project size and needs. no one tool suits all.

Have been using Emacs for over a decade, and I’m fairly happy with it.

I’m using GNU Emacs, which is, from my experience, great for open source software and decentralized development. Last year, I found an issue in a package/extension, I could make an experiment by modifying and running its code on the fly. I didn’t even need to reload the whole package/extension. So I figured the solution out and submitted a pull request quickly.

I only really use Vim. Mainly because vi is installed on basically every server and distro, so it is what I got used to.

When I need to use the terminal I use micro, it’s very simple to use with the classic ctrl+s to save. Otherwise kate.

micro looks promising, i just use nano when i’m in the terminal lol

micro is easy. make sure to download xclip and, when you decide to keep micro, be sure to set it as your default. Ranger or another terminal editor can then opne your .md or .txt files in micro and saving them using micro is more reliable than using nano (which sometimes as a .saved after the name of your file)

1- terminal-based text editor,
2- with mouse support,
3- 1000 x better than nano(editor) & vim (just kidding, 5 x better)
