sc-im

Spreadsheet Calculator Improvised, aka sc-im, is an ncurses based, vim-like spreadsheet calculator.

sc-im is based on sc, whose original authors are James Gosling and Mark Weiser, and mods were later added by Chuck Martin.

Some of the features of sc-im

  • Vim movements commands for editing cell content.
  • UNDO / REDO.

  • Key-mappings.
  • Autobackup.
  • Direct color support - specifing the RGB values, screen colors can be customized by user, even at runtime.
