**micro** is a terminal-based text editor that aims to be easy to use and intuitive, while also taking advantage of the capabilities
of modern terminals. It comes as a single, batteries-included, static binary with no dependencies; you can download and use it right away.
As the name indicates, micro aims to be somewhat of a successor to the nano editor by being easy to install and use in a pinch, but micro also aims to be
enjoyable to use full time, whether you work in the terminal because you prefer it (like me), or because you need to (over ssh).

It strives to be enjoyable as a full-time editor for people who prefer to work in a terminal, or those who regularly edit files over SSH.

* Easy to use and to install
* No dependencies or external files are needed -- just the binary you can download further down the page
* Multiple cursors
* Common keybindings (ctrl-s, ctrl-c, ctrl-v, ctrl-z...)
* Keybindings can be rebound to your liking
* Sane defaults
* You shouldn't have to configure much out of the box (and it is extremely easy to configure)
* Splits and tabs
* Nano-like menu to help you remember the keybindings
* Extremely good mouse support
* This means mouse dragging to create a selection, double click to select by word, and triple click to select by line
* Cross platform (It should work on all the platforms Go runs on)
* Note that while Windows is supported, there are still some bugs that need to be worked out
* Plugin system (plugins are written in Lua)
* Micro has a built-in plugin manager to automatically install, remove, and update all your plugins
* Persistent undo
* Automatic linting and error notifications
* Syntax highlighting (for over [90 languages](runtime/syntax)!)
* Colorscheme support
* By default, micro comes with 16, 256, and true color themes.
* True color support (set the `MICRO_TRUECOLOR` env variable to 1 to enable it)
* Snippets
* The snippet plugin can be installed with `> plugin install snippets`
* Copy and paste with the system clipboard
* Small and simple
* Easily configurable
* Macros

### MacOS terminal
### macOS terminal
If you are using MacOS, you should consider using [iTerm2](http://iterm2.com/) instead of the default Mac terminal. The iTerm2 terminal has much better mouse support as well as better handling of key events. For best keybinding behavior, choose `xterm defaults` under `Preferences->Profiles->Keys->Load Preset`. The newest versions also support true color.

### Colors and syntax highlighting
If you open micro and it doesn't seem like syntax highlighting is working, this is probably because
you are using a terminal which does not support 256 color. Try changing the colorscheme to `simple`
by pressing CtrlE in micro and typing `set colorscheme simple`.

to `xterm-256color`.
Many of the Windows terminals don't support more than 16 colors, which means
that micro's default colorscheme won't look very good. You can either set

### Plan9, Cygwin
Please note that micro uses the amazing [tcell library](https://github.com/gdamore/tcell), but this
means that micro is restricted to the platforms tcell supports. As a result, micro does not support
Plan9, and Cygwin (although this may change in the future). Micro also doesn't support NaCl (but NaCl is deprecated anyways).
