Yi is a text editor written and extensible in Haskell. The long-term goal of the Yi project is to provide the editor of choice for Haskell programmers.
Yi is not a finished product. This is a beta-quality release. However, Yi has become a lot more usable than previously, so if you feel like testing it, now might be a good time to take a look.
Using cabal install:
cabal install yi–0.5.0.1
If you want unix console support, pass the -fvty option to cabal install.
- A purely functional editor core
- Key-bindings written as parsers of the input
