Preview recently edited notes and launch editor

Project description

redit - edit again

redit previews a folder of recently edited text files and launches an editor on the file of your choice.

redit is useful when you keep a folder of textual notes and you want to go back to a recently edited file whose name you might not remember. In this case you would type redit and be greeted with this interactive prompt:


Answering with j, enter will then directly load into your editor.

You can set a default directory to look for files (say, ~/notes) in ~/.config/redit/default-location like this:

mkdir -p ~/.config/redit && echo '~/notes' > ~/.config/redit/default-location

Alternatively you can provide a location with redit ~/Downloads and finally redit falls back to the current directory.


pip install redit

Configure an editor

redit will try to launch the editor in $EDITOR or use the one configured in ~/.config/redit/editor.
