enki editor – amazing for md and rst files

First, you need to install enki. YOu can do so with

sudo yum install enki

 

And then you can use the editor as usual. The first thing that you will notice is the navigator window. And here is screenshot for you.

As you can see if you make a typo or mistake then you will immediately be warned with RED color.

 

The preview windows keeps updating with the latest preview and thus you always know how your markdown or restructured text files will finally look like.

vim mappings – easy way to do things.

You can use vim mappings to make some of your editor tasks very simple. Here I am giving you just a example, but you could always let your imagination run wild.

:nmap ,b Oj0c$**hP

And what do we do here.

O – Add a new line

– Go to normal mode

j – go to newly added line

0 – Go to begining of line

c$ – Change till end of line

****<Esc> РEnter  four stars

h – go back one character.

P –¬† Paste the last deleted line, which is what we deleted with c$.

This is just to show you how powerful, mappings can be. So, GO WILD with imagination.

You can first set the bash mode to vi. This will enable some vim like features to bash. So, add this to .bashrc :

set -o vi

Once, you have done that then its time to get more out of the vi mode. First, check some things and set some interesting stuff.

#Display all the bindings :
bind -P

#Copy the current bindings and use it in inputrc:
bind -p |grep -v self-insert>~/.inputrc

In the inputrc, so generated, all the functions and macros not bound are commented with “#” and you can set them to your choice as in other examples.

And here is a link that can get you started.
