Vim-inspired code editor

Kakoune is a code editor heavily inspired by Vim, as such most of its commands are similar to Vi's ones, and it shares Vi's "keystrokes as a text editing language" model. Kakoune has a strong focus on interactivity, most commands provide immediate and incremental results, while still being competitive (as in keystroke count) with Vim.


Install the latest version of kakoune as follows:

guix install kakoune

Or install a particular version:

guix install kakoune@2023.08.05

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.
