aretext: minimalist text editor with vim-compatible key bindings

Aretext is a terminal-based text editor with vim-compatible key bindings. Today, aretext supports nearly 100 of the most common vim commands, with more added in each release. Its minimalist design reflects the Unix philosophy: simple software that composes easily with other terminal-based tools -- compilers, formatters, tmux, and more!

In this lightning talk, we'll see how aretext's carefully-chosen features provide an efficient and powerful editing experience with minimal configuration.
