The text editor is employed by most programmers, who use it as a full-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This is a desktop application that serves as a port for Vim on Mac. The application features a dark-themed interface similar to a command-line interface on which you can write your texts from the UI and also comes with support for drag & drop actions.

The application comes with an inbuilt spell checker that checks for spelling errors in your texts and suggests corrections and also provides support for highlighting syntax.
