dex text editor

Hey guys, recently i came across this nice little text editor called dex.

It's written by the original author of cmus, Timo Hirvonen.

It's dependant only on libc. It features a command line and it can do stuff like splitting (vertical/horizontal), creating aliases for commands, binding keys to commands, syntax highlighting, and a lot more.

I am a vim addict, and haven't tried this much, but it seems like a really good text editor from the first look.

Also, here's a screenshot of it in action:


screenshot info: one horizontal split, and then one vertical split in the upper region.

EDIT: I just created a PKGBUILD

Re: dex text editor

That's kind of a lot to place on the forum. Can't you put the man page on sprunge or ompldr and link to that?
