Binary editor written in Go

Why?

Why not? Programming is so fun!

I learned so much while creating this editor; handling of file pointers, what the saying details should depend on abstractions mean, how to mock file system for tests in Go language, how to solve deadlock or race conditions between goroutines and many other things.

After all, creating by yourself is the best way to learn how it works.

Okay, but why?

I actually want a binary editor with Vim-like user interface, which runs in terminals, portable, fast and with window splitting feature. I think I started coding for what I want before doing research on existing editors.
