I've made a Vim-like text editor (cough https://replit.com/@CHRISTIANMATTHY/pybless ), and it is a pain, but I used python and Curses. It is nice to use, I am just usually dumb tho

@CHRISTIANMATTHY I don't understand how to use it I just see a blank screen in replit.com and when I run it on my computer it says "AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'fileno'".

CHRISTIANMATTHY

@maxina I would use it on repl.it, and read the readme

@maxina I posted the wrong one too, whoops

maxina

@CHRISTIANMATTHY OOHHh I see it now wow that's so cool! I was trying to use that module on my computer and I kept getting errors though, any idea why?

CHRISTIANMATTHY

On Windows, you need to pip install windows-curses and remove the window resizing part. @maxina

maxina

@CHRISTIANMATTHY oh do I need to run it in command prompt?

@CHRISTIANMATTHY oh ok I got it running in my ubuntu terminal and it's less laggy than in replit.com. Very cool!
