It is also possible to set up an email alert for text edits or new comments. Import/export is supported for many formats including TXT, DOC, ODT, and HTML.
ted (Tiny EDitor) is a lightweight commandline text editor designed for scripting. It's intended to be an easier-to-use alternative to "ed".

It is also slightly more featureful than ed, and includes multiple editing buffers and built-in script handling.

Unlike other plugins which embed Vim in Eclipse, Vrapper imitates the behavior of Vim while still using whatever editor you have opened in the workbench.
