On Switching to Ed: https://atthis.link/blog/2020/usingEd.html
@firstname.lastname@example.org I actually write a version of ed that I actually used (for a while) as my primary text editor. It is possible, and isn’t really that bad. For me (because I’m blind anyway) navigating the “file” isn’t that hard for me, I tend to have a better memory of the contents of the file naturally I guess…
@email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org Nice article. I never had the guts to use ed. Now I wanted to try it, but was very surprised that I don’t even have it installed on my current system. That must be a sign to better not dare.
@email@example.com Well you could clone and build mine,
go get‘int it might even work 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org I read your blog post and I find your comments on navigating in the contents of a file particularly interesting… Do you think there would be a way perhaps to make that a little bit easier while still preserving the original intent of Ed itself? It would be something I wouldn’t mind exploring myself 🤔
@email@example.com It’s not my blog post, I just thought it was an interesting read.
I do enjoy using
ed sometimes. It forces me to keep lines short and markup concise.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Bwahahahahahaaa, I didn’t know this one. Very nice! :‘-D
