I mentioned e3 the other day as my fave-rave editor in the ultra-ultra-lightweight division.
In the days that followed I was rightly reminded via scathing e-mail to mention mg, as a skin-tight rendition of emacs.
And so I offer this slightly outdated screenshot as a sacrifice to the Internet gods.
I have to be honest though. I have trouble just exiting emacs-ish programs. I can never really figure out which keypress is the command sequence, and which is the exit key.
That’s what I get, I suppose, for shifting into the vim camp so many years ago. (And I’m not even a big vim fan either. 😦 Sigh.)
Regardless, if you prefer the emacs style but dislike all its baggage, mg might be enough to mollify you.
