kod aims to be a fast and modern terminal code-editor. It is inspired by both vim & micro. It's built using xi-editor as backend.
- Performance, it should never freeze or be slow
- Modes for efficient editing, similar to vim
- Plugins (via xi-core, an example is xi-syntect-plugin which is shown in the picture above)
- Modular, uses xi-editor as backend
- Maintain a huge platform support (like vim), it will be supported by the major platforms and architectures
xi-core to be set in your
$PATH. For more information how to build xi-core, please have a look at xi-editor's github page.
Once xi-core is available you should be able to install with following
go get -u -v github.com/linde12/kod
To ensure that kod is available, run
which kod. It prints kod path in GO binary.
If you see
kod not found, you need to add your
$GOPATH/bin to PATH
