A terminal based text editor
Yet Another Text EDitor
This is a terminal based text editor, inspired by a wish to have an editor with default visual and key bindings that resemble typical GUI based editors.
Written in Python and relying on the curses module, support for various key combinations varies with system and terminal.
So far, best results are seen in the gnome-terminal
Depends on either xclip or python3-pyqt4 for clipboard operations
Install with apt:
sudo apt install python3 python3-pip xclip sudo pip3 install yated
