Hmmm... i clicked on the link to get my favourite editor, but it seems to download VIM instead... and VIM really, really, really sucks ;)

You have a loose definition of your own editor if that includes VIM ;-)

Relax, it was a little joke.

Anyway, I have a heavily customised version of JanoEditor, and a hacked version of Blacks Editor that I disassembled, but neither of them are really mine, nor are they for general release :)

Thanks for all the hard work - this will be one of the first apps installed when I get my peg up and running again.

"gvim -y" is nifty, otherwise it's nano all the way

No editor comes close to vim - in the console! But if you need a console editor with a more AmigaIsh look'n'feel, try "ne" from Sebastiano Vigna... in case someone remembers this guy. :)

In reply to Comment 1 (Peter Gordon):
VIM has so many features that no amiga editor can be close to it.

I used to be a CED addicted, but after the first impact with VIM I fell in love with it :)

Anyway I think someone should release an Amiga version of GVIM since having VIM alone means to lost modern editing features that are objectively very useful. GVIM has every feature an editor can need.

In reply to Comment 9 (Gabriele Greco):
You are right. I do believe that a GVIM makes a lot of sense in MorphOS/AmigaOS because we are mostly GUI driven anyways. I saw already signs of a GVIM Amiga version but I am not sure how finished these parts are. I need to have a little feedback with Bram Moolenar about this.

Uhm, I would say Emacs fulfills my every need.

Yes, I used to run that on my A1200 in OS3.9 (under geekgadgets).

But that's a WHOLE different war ;-)

Did you use it as Editor or OperatingSystem replacement ?

Mainly as editor, but I do play tetris in it, and I do use it to compile (because then I can middle-click on compiler errors to make Emacs load file and jump to line).

if you want a easy shell based text editor use EasyEdit

No doubt this may be an interesting editor but why should someone who uses VIM for the past years YET learn the basics of another editor ? I simply want to use VIM on whatever arch I am with the same keystrokes, shortcuts and syntax highlights as I am doing on Lunix and other OS's. That is the aim of bringing VIM on all arches. So people feel confortable with it.

never heard about vim, but sometime you need a text editor that run in
shell mode (for telnet and others things ...)
in this case vim dont fullfill the need at all
i gave it a try and wasnt able to do anything, even quit

EasyEdit is EASY, that's was it was created for
no need to learn enything, you simply press on ESC and you get some
txt menu which allow you to do plenty of things

i have nothing against vim, but i think it is only for already
vim-addicted people

in fact i know vim, but under the name "vi", i used it at school on
txt terminals, so i confirm that its a real nightmare to learn
it is not easy to use, you have to know plenty of shortcuts else you
cant do anything with it

my goal was not to destroy your idea/project :)
its only that often i see news item about it advertising it as a great
text editor, when its a text editor for some geeks only(unusable for
most of people)

so it's good to talk about it and keep others informed

Why do you think people provide Manuals for their editor ? VIM comes with a lot of Manuals, great Tutorial for beginners, a cool Mailinglist for people to help them and even printable books to help you solving the first steps. VI and VIM is being used by half of the open source world the other half uses emacs which isn't less cryptic. Not to mention that you only need 10 mins when you follow the tutorial to get into VIM itself. The normal user doesn't need many commands either probably 5% of 100% the other commands they need they will learn by increased usage of VIM.

If you have problems using VIM then that doesn't mean that others have the same problems with it han you initially had. It's just a matter of personal willingness to read Tutorials or spent some mins into it.

I much prefer to use MorphED/GoldED but for a consoleeditor nano is my favourite so far. ;)
