I enjoy poking around with oddball text editors. It’s fun to see how many different ways there are to save letters to a file.
At that time I didn’t look very deep into the application; folding isn’t something I necessarily need, and fe follows emacs-style keybindings.
But I took a little time one morning and came up with this.
If you look closely, you can see spots with triple-brackets or points of ellipsis. Those are areas of text marked for folding, and cleverly hide my blog password from your prying eyes.
Of course, folding is not intended as some sort of weak-sauce security feature. Coders will appreciate fe’s folding features, and emacs fans will like the key arrangement.
And people like me will enjoy fe because it rides in a massive 0.7 percent of my 256Mb of memory available, making it one of the few editors I know of that can hover in less than 1.8Mb of space.
For a second time, a tip of the hat to the Michael Haardt.
