fav. editor?

what your fav editor... not to start a "holy war" but just wondering.... in the past few days i haved cozyed up to emacs but i can see where someone would want to use vim. i also think that pico is a great editor for small things.

what do you think? preferences?

gVim + midnight2 color scheme smile

vim is really a good editor, much more simple than emacs but still powerful.

syntax hilight just rocks, and folding is a very good feature, is easy to find a lot of simple but effective scripts that helps you a lot while coding late at night..

i tried to use emacs few years ago when i was starting with gnu/linux and coding php and it took me about 15 minutes to release how to close it!

btw if you had a lot of time and patience you will love emacs (if you learn to use it right) but if you want to start coding with a simple few commands (:i :w & :x) vim is the answer.

Re: fav. editor?

i prefere vim, i really love the way it highlights,
but actually it lacks some features a very good editor should have, i.e.:

- tabbed file editing ( yes, i know this is odd with flux, but still comfortable and gives u a good overview)
- Replace over files ( yes i know i can take sed )
- a really nice gui

I think vim is nearly perfect expect that it is not that good for bigger projects because it's a console application.....

Re: fav. editor?

yes, I did but I never liked console apps ported to X, vim is a console editior, which is powerfull because u can call it fast if u wanna edit a small config file or so, but as a X app, vim is not good enough.

i.e. a very good win**** editor was UltraEdit32, which was mine favorite and i'm still looking for a equivalent replacement in linux. The only editor which is nearlly that good is Nedit, except that nedit has no tabbed file browsing.

For bigger projects i would suggest Codeforge, but it's commercial software i think......

oh, and btw. Kate has a feature which I never saw before, i don't know how it's called, but u can fold a function into one line, like in a dir-tree, would be nice to see this feature in more text editors, because it really helps to keep the overview.

Re: fav. editor?

Try out glimmer..

http://glimmer.sf.net

it has tabs and is nice, i use it for lot of time but it eats my RAM out so i decided to use gVim instead.

I agree with you that UltraEdit for the wintendo boxes is cool but i also think that gVim is better than the console vim (gvim is a lot easier than vim because you don't have to learn a lot of commands).

Re: fav. editor?

I'm using nedit, but I'm still looking for something else.

I found beaver quite interesting (but not better than nedit)
BTW, pkg for beaver can be found in /incoming.

Sorry Mork: since I'm using AL, I use to always make a pkg when I try a new app...
Don't think that I did not wanted to let you do it yourself wink

glimmer looked very good too, but it requires gnome 1.4...

Re: fav. editor?

vi if I need to work in the console... it's available on each system and I'm too lazy to learn emacs smile

for other things I generally use scite for python scripting and small text files
