Acme


The eerily fascinating (and hopelessly retro) Plan9 editor.

The thing is still finicky to use without a mouse and I’ve yet to get it to work properly with accented characters on Linux (not a big deal for coding or writing, but annoying), but it’s grown on me a fair bit. Oh, and you’ll need to use -f / -F and fontsrv to set a decent font, or you’ll go insane.
