Today I stumbled over the helix editor, which is an alternative for VIM. The helix editor is written in Rust, you always can get me with Rust (Does this mean I am a fan boy?).
Helix has many feature integrated, which leads to a fast setup time, without the configuration hell you will probably have with VIM. For absoulte beginners the added command hints are a blessing, with a big improvement for the user expirience.
In short, I like this editor, quiet a lot. The feeling is just better. So I recommend you try it out.
