is a customizable, usable curses
-based (console-based, or text-based) text editor
. It was developed with the intention of being easier to configure and use than Emacs
, more powerful than Pico
, and not as cryptic as vi
Diakonos uses the common Macintosh/Windows keyboard shortcuts - Ctrl-C to copy, Ctrl-V to paste, Ctrl-O to open a file, Ctrl-S to save and so on, instead of the more idiosyncratic key combinations used by most other console-based editors.
Diakonos is a Ruby program, and hence needs Ruby installed.
