Been using emacs for long, though occasionally used vi as well while left alone in the terminal. Then learnt the `emacs -nw` trick for terminal emacs, created an alias (`e`) and kept moving. But sometimes I felt the need of a better editor when things did not work the way I wanted it to. Though emacs can be customized as much a Hardy Davidson can be, but not for a lazy ass like me.
Was working with webpy since morning and I had been struggling at one point since 4 p.m. It had been a single statement of using the insert function which had been messing in a mysterious manner. After trying, trying and still trying, I found out it had something to do with how it is in the file. It’s just my conclusion, but am afraid its the real reason too. Then I tried gvim, enabled syntax highlighting but it still doesn’t auto indent which I very much need while writing Python code. Thus started wondering if there is any other near to ideal editor in this world. The mac comes with one, which I have seen jace working with. But I neither have a mac book nor have it on Ubuntu.
The search for a better editor that works for me continues….
