@oni_vim I think every VSCoder needs to look at Oni2 - not just because it doesn't hog on resources like VSCode or any electron based editor, but because the way we edit our code should leverage modal editing
@oni_vim Sweetest thing about Modal editing is composing commands
@oni_vim You learn some motions (moving left, right, end of line, end of paragraph etc)
@oni_vim You learn some operations (delete, replace etc)
@oni_vim And you learn some objects for that extra power. (I think this is optional though)
@oni_vim The above three class of commands let you create a whole variety of commands, quite possibly for every powerful usecase you can think of!
@oni_vim I have always hated the mouse. It required careful movements. It's stressful
@oni_vim Emacs is great. Always been the editor of my choice. At least until now.
@oni_vim But in the past, owing to the community free software ideals, I've had a tough time with some of my editing related tasks. I don't know what will fix it. (Fingers crossed Spacemacs?) Moving away from Emacs will be hard.
@oni_vim This time I want something that is practical - development driven by pragmatism, in tune with users' needs and paid! Yes, I want some one else to take some of my headache away and expect regularly maintained software. I'm tired of free stuff.
@oni_vim Something as crucial as an editor, something we spend almost all my professional life on, should not be another unpaid, often unthanked, developer's responsibility who were looking forward to spending their weekend on hacking and learning instead of our silly requests - for free
@oni_vim Interestingly, Oni2 is dual licensing their code after every 18 months via MIT. External contributions don't even need to wait that time period.
@oni_vim I think Oni2 is an exciting open source product. Really looking forward to it!
