Modal editing: Here's where I've landed

Sublime Text & Micro Editor

If you've been following along with my Vim/Modal editing debacle, here's where I've landed.

I'm a all-or-nothing person, so since I can't do modal editing everywhere (without madness) I'm ditching the paradigm

I've been playing around with using nano this morning for e.g. Git commits, etc and decided to use micro instead.

Micro is a great editor after-all. Checkout the customizations I've made to it to make it more useful:



I'm also going to work to have parity with Sublime, here's what I have so far:

Packages/User/Default (OSX).sublime-keymap#L66

I'm going to start trying to improve my editing techniques in normal editing across my system instead of spamming the GUI menu and sloppy ⌘- combos to get more and more efficient at editing in macOS.
