Helix – a Kakoune/Neovim inspired editor, written in Rust. The editing model is very heavily based on Kakoune; during development I (the developer) found myself agreeing with most of Kakoune’s design decisions.

– Vim-like modal editing
– Multiple selections
– Built-in language server support
– Smart, incremental syntax highlighting and code editing via tree-sitter

Built in Rust, for the terminal. No Electron. No VimScript. No JavaScript. Use it over ssh, tmux, or a plain terminal. Multiple cursors as a core editing primitive, inspired by Kakoune. Commands manipulate selections which allows concurrent code editing.
