Folding editors: Text editors which support Folding, i.e. hiding
parts of the text so that the whole text can be browsed more easily. An example
would be hiding C functions (by displaying only their declaration line) in a C source file.
Does anyone know of a text editor with VI-like key bindings and folding support? Please let me know!
- Origami. An ancient text editor with emacs-like key bindings.
- fe, its successor.
- GNU Emacs and XEmacs support outlines, another name for folding. However, it doesn't seem to be well-integrated with the major editing modes.
- JED has folding support as of version 0.98. Well-implemented and very easy to use with the C-mode.
- FTE supports folding. Also, binary file editing, syntax highlighting, multi-window mode...
