This has been available for a while, curious why it's making HN now?

"Additionally, your choice of editors is rather limited. Whatever you use, it has to be terminal-based. A GUI editor like Xcode, Sublime Text 2, or Coda is right-out."

I just want to point out that with a program like WinSCP, you can sync a folder over SSH and essentially work over SSH with whatever editor you'd like.

We're talking about an iPad.

That doesn't really help you if you are on an ipad.

A lot of time language like this is used intentionally for added effect. And then every time something like this happens "idiot kids" are derided for not having any skill. Yet a company like Groupon with salaried technical engineers failed to defend themselves. If we're defending our networks against idiot kids then we're covered, but if we take away from this that sometimes there are some skilled individuals involved, maybe we will take security a little more seriously.

Also it probably helped that there has been a lot of talk recently about this area in the news, in this article making it to the front page.

i think you'd have a pretty great mobile app on your hands here if you added a social/sharing side. A timeline of top poems. Instagram for poetry pretty much.

Sublime Text 2 has Vintage mode which supports Vim-like commands, is a native app, and is elegant.

However, HappyEdit has one significant advantage over ST2, in that it is open source. While I love ST2, I feel like for it to really be embraced as a great editor, it needs to be open source.

I've tried using Sublime with Vintage mode, and about 30% of the time I'm editing, I try a Vim combo and nothing happens. This isn't just for advanced Vim features -- it's for basic things like g_.

-----


There's a VintageEx bundle that extends Vintage mode with more vim-ness. It still lacks vim-surround which is a no-go for me, and there are a few differences in behavior (off-by-one mostly) that constantly throw me off.

Vintage mode is in a pretty ugly point in the uncanny valley.

I love Sublime and have been using it since the beginning of this year but I'm really worried about getting too "invested" in it because it isn't released under a Free Software license.

My old emacs.d still sits in my home folder because I have this fear that Sublime will just stop being supported tomorrow and I would have no choice but to go back to emacs.

I really just wish emacs had an amazing mixed mode, it's the only thing that even made me try out Sublime. All the php mixed modes I tried were really bad and I do a lot of work in PHP/HTML mixed view files.
