./editors/nano, Small and friendly text editor (a free replacement for Pico)

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 6.4, Package name: nano-6.4, Maintainer: wiedi

GNU `nano' is a small and friendly text editor. Besides basic text
editing, `nano' offers many extra features like an interactive search
and replace, goto line number, auto-indentation, feature toggles,
internationalization support, and filename tab completion.

The original goal for `nano' was a complete bug-for-bug compatible
emulation of Pico, but consistency is now a slightly higher priority.

Nano does not have the restrictive license problems of Pico.

nano: update to 6.3

2022.04.28 - GNU nano 6.3 "Wat zullen we drinken? Wat een dorst!"
• For multiline regexes, text is now colored as soon a start match
  is found, also when there is no end match at all.
• The colorizing of any line is stopped after two thousand bytes,
  to avoid frustrating delays.
• When environment variable NO_COLOR is set, the two default colors
  (yellow for the spotlight, red for error messages) are suppressed
  when no interface colors are specified in a nanorc file.
• Full justification and piping the whole buffer through a command
  now keep the cursor at the same line number.
• Utility 'xsel' can be used to copy a marked region to the system's
  clipboard.  See doc/sample.nanorc for an example.

2022.02.18 - GNU nano 6.2 "Kamperfoelie"
• The file browser clears the prompt bar also when using --minibar.
• Linting now works also with a newer 'pyflakes'.

2022.02.09 - GNU nano 6.1 "Rețelele de socializare sunt ca un frigider"
• The behavior of ^K at a prompt has been enhanced: when there is some
  text after the cursor, just this text is erased.  In the most common
  situation, when the cursor is at the end of the answer, the behavior
  is as before: the whole answer is erased.
• At a prompt, M-6 copies the current answer into the cutbuffer.
• Large external pastes into nano are handled more quickly.

nano: update to 6.0

2021.12.15 - GNU nano 6.0  "Humor heeft ook zijn leuke kanten"

• Option --zero hides the title bar, status bar and help lines, and
  uses all rows of the terminal as editing area.  The title bar and
  status bar can be toggled with M-Z.
• Colors can now be specified also as three-digit hexadecimal numbers,
  in the format #rgb.  This picks from the 216 index colors (that most
  terminals know) the color that is nearest to the given values.
• For users who dislike numbers, there are fourteen new color names:
  rosy, beet, plum, sea, sky, slate, teal, sage, brown, ocher, sand,
  tawny, brick, and crimson.
• Suspension is enabled by default, invokable with ^T^Z.  The options
  -z, --suspendable, and 'set suspendable' are obsolete and ignored.
  (In case you want to be able to suspend nano with a single keystroke,
  you can put 'bind ^Z suspend main' in your nanorc.)
• When automatic hard-wrapping is in effect, pasting just a few words
  (without a line break) will now hard-wrap the line when needed.
• Toggling Append or Prepend clears the current filename.
• The word count as shown by M-D is now affected by option --wordbounds;
  with it, nano counts words as 'wc' does; without it (the new default),
  words are counted in a more human way: seeing punctuation as space.
• The YAML syntax file is now actually included in the tarball.

nano: update to 5.9

2021.10.06 - GNU nano 5.9 "El manicomio ha decidido: mañana sol!"
• The extension of a filename is added to the name of a corresponding
  temporary file, so that spell checking a C file, for example, will
  check only the comments and strings (when using 'aspell').
• The process number is added to the name of an emergency save file,
  so that when multiple nanos die they will not fight over a filename.
• Undoing a cutting operation will restore an anchor that was located
  in the cut area to its original line.
• When using --locking, saving a new buffer will create a lock file.
• Syntax highlighting for YAML files has been added.

nano: update to 5.8

2021.06.15 - GNU nano 5.8 "Why is it necessary to be special?"
• After a search, the spotlighting is dropped after 1.5 seconds (0.8
  seconds with --quick) to avoid the idea that the text is selected.
• A + and a space before a filename on the command line will put the
  cursor at the end of the corresponding buffer.
• Linter messages no longer include filename and line/column numbers.
• Color name "grey" or "gray" can be used instead of \ 
"lightblack".
• The color of the minibar can be chosen with 'set minicolor'.

nano: update to 5.7

2021.04.29 - GNU nano 5.7 "Toți ceilalți arau câmpurile"
• The output of --constantshow (without --minibar) is more stable.
• When opening multiple buffers and there is an error message, this
  message is shown again upon first switch to the relevant buffer.
• The position and size of the indicator now follow actual lines,
  instead of visual lines when in softwrap mode, meaning that the
  size of the indicator can change when scrolling in softwrap mode.
