I've always had itchy feet with text editors. There hasn't been one which has really stuck. Vim rulese in a terminal and I find it so much easier to use over nano/ed/emacs. However, Gvim sucks! This is a basically a terminal wrapped in a gui window. I've been using gedit for some of my simple edits and pycharm for some large IDE python works. Pycharm is amazing but very resource heavy esp in a VM! I've tried using ATOM but that is very sloooooow and buggy.
Enter Oni -- DADA! It looks like Atom but is usuable, has a good gui intergration and has neoVim (a vim + editor) at its core -- I can :wq to my heart's delight!!
