README.md

fuNote

This is a minimalistic, (almost) POSIX complaint terminal text editor, which should be working on all common (and not so common) VT100 compatible terminal emulators.

This started as a little experiment, how far I can go with just a C compiler and the Linux manpages, without any libs or other external dependencies such as ncurses. This is a working text editor and perfectly fine for quickly edit some configuration files or take some notes, but definitive not intended to use as a full blown IDE.

Features

  • Load/Save/Create text files
  • Common keyboard controls
  • Search
  • Syntax Highlighting for C (so you can edit fuNote source IN fuNote)
  • Super small (23k binary)
  • No dependencies

Limitations

  • No UTF-8. If you open an UTF-8 file with only characters from the ASCII table (most of English texts and source code), it works just fine (because ASCII and UTF-8 are compatible in the "upper part" of the table), but you will mess up your file when you are edit files with special chars like ö in it.

Compile

$ make

Run

$ ./fn [filename]
