./editors/micro, Modern and intuitive terminal-based text editor

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.0.6nb1, Package name: micro-2.0.6nb1, Maintainer: sjmulder

Terminal-based text editor that aims to be easy to use and intuitive,
while also taking advantage of the capabilities of modern terminals.

As its name indicates, micro aims to be somewhat of a successor to the
nano editor by being easy to install and use. It strives to be enjoyable
as a full-time editor for people who prefer to work in a terminal, or
those who regularly edit files over SSH.
