helix: A post-modern text editor.
Powerful code manipulation
Language server support
Language specific auto completion, goto definition, documentation, diagnostics and other IDE features with no additional configuration.
Tree-sitter produces error tolerant and robust syntax trees, which enables better syntax highlighting, indent calculation and code navigation.
Built in Rust, for the terminal
Multiple cursors as a core editing primitive, inspired by Kakoune. Commands manipulate selections which allows concurrent code editing.
Many people move from VS Code to terminal-based modal editors for increased performance. Neovim and Helix are both written in compiled languages and are an order of magnitude faster and more responsive.
Helix seems slightly faster, but there is not any real difference to be concerned with. Both are extremely snappy.
