Emacs skill, or other editor?

Hello Mycrofters,

I’ve been corresponding with Richard Stallman, extolling the freedom, openness and privacy of Mycroft (yeah, that guy, arguably the father of GNU/Linux). He asks if he can use Mycroft to become more proficient at Emacs. Has anyone written such a skill? Or one for vi/vim/nano etc.?

Thanks.

Do you have any use cases in mind?

How about "Hey Mycroft -

  • Open file ‘x’ in Emacs"

  • Replace text ‘foo’ with ‘bar’"

  • Show all occurrences of text ‘foo’"

  • Go to line ‘n’"

  • Save file

  • etc.

He asks if he can use Mycroft to become more proficient at Emacs.

More proficient? Didn’t he like…write large chunks of GNU Emacs?

I gotta say (and this is just like, my opinion, man) but using Mycroft to edit a text file with any text editor sounds like trying to use a coffee grinder to peel a banana.

@sparkyvision - More recently, he said he’d also like to be able to dictate. So think of taking notes or writing a letter without needing to use the keyboard.

All of these will be Python related, not editors (vim, emacs, pico, nano, etc…) related (my opinion).
