micro is a 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.

micro allows splitting the view in a single terminal: use Ctrl+E to enter command mode and type "hsplit" or "vsplit", Ctrl+W to switch focus between tiles. Tabs: Ctrl+T to open a new tab, Ctrl+O to open a file in it, Alt+, and Alt+. to select previous/next tab, Ctrl+Q to close current tab.

Press Alt+G to show keybindings (they can be customized), Ctrl+G for detailed help. Full list of keybindings: https://github.com/zyedidia/micro/blob/master/runtime/help/keybindings.md/.

# Disclaimer
I am not the developer of micro, I just packaged it for SFOS. micro is being actively developed by Zachary Yedidia and other contributors, but that does not include the SFOS package, which may or may not be updated in the future. The SFOS package is just meant to facilitate installation on SFOS using openrepos.net, but micro is also available as a standalone binary on the project page.

Application versions: 
File micro-2.0.4-1.armv7hl.rpm3.38 MB26/05/2020 - 15:31

- First SFOS package based on the 2.0.4 release.
