This package browser is in early development. Mind the rough edges.


Small folding editor

Fe is a small folding editor. It folds arbitrary text regions; it is not bound to syntactic units.

Fe has no configuration or extension language and requires no setup. Its user interface is emacs-like and it has menus for the very most important functions to help beginners. Further there is a reference card. It offers:

  • Regions and Emacs-like kill ring

  • Incremental search

  • Keyboard macros

  • Editing binary files

  • Multiple windows and views

  • Compose function for Latin 1 characters


Install the latest version of fe as follows:

guix install fe

Or install a particular version:

guix install fe@2.0

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
