Package Request - Oni
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Name: Oni
Homepage: https://github.com/onivim/oni
Why should this be included in the repository? This is a very nice modal GUI editor for neovim. I'd love to see it included in our package list!
Is it Open Source (yes/no): Yes
Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software? It's pretty popular in terms of github stars (10k+), so I believe a lot of people will find interest in it :)

Thank you devs!

Why would we want this over our million other existing editors like Atom and VS Code that already have stuff like Vim bindings available OOTB or via extensions?

I stopped using Atom long while ago because it was slower than others. For VSCode, there is an extension (VSCodeVim), but it only emulates vim partially, which I didn't have a great experience with. Currently, I'm only using neovim, but it doesn't have a great language support and I would like to have the features like VSCode. I believe this article best explains my view.

Let me know what you think.

I would appreciate having Ino too. I think it's a great alternative to VSCode with full Neovim support and a very nice GUI. It has also native support for Language Server Protocol (LSP).

JoshStrobl moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

Accepting but this needs to be built from source (e.g. not what is currently linked in the description).

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
