  • Gnu Nano releases version 6.0 of text editor, can now hide UI frippery

    Text editor GNU Nano has reached version 6.0.

    The app’s last x.0 release emerged in July 2020 and was just the fifth full version in the project’s history.

    Version 6.0 debuted on December 15th and is named “Humor heeft ook zijn leuke kanten”.

    The Register believes that’s a phrase often uttered by Dutch comedian Herman Finkers and translates as “Humor also has its nice sides”. We’re sure readers who don’t need to rely on machine translation will help us out with a better translation in the comments.

  • GNU Nano 6.0 Released - It's FOSS News

    Ever since its release in late 1999, GNU Nano has set new standards for ease-of-use for terminal-based text editors. Since then, it has seen multitudes of releases, the latest of which is the brand-new version 6.0.

    While not necessarily the most feature-packed release, it does have a few key improvements. Let’s take a look at some of them!

  • GNU Nano 6 broadens the horizons of the editor and supports more colors -

    Complying with the cadence of a major release every year (although this time rushing), we already have among us GNU Nano 6, the new major version of the well-known console text editor that is pre-installed in many Linux distributions.

    GNU Nano 6 arrives with some interesting news. To start we have the option ‘–zero’, which allows launching the program so that the title bar, the status bar and the help lines are hidden, thus using all the lines of the terminal as the editing area. The title bar and status bar can be toggled with ‘M-Z’.

    Colors can now be specified with three digit hexadecimal numbers following the RGB format, allowing you to choose from 216 index colors. As an alternative, non-handymen handling hexadecimal numbers have fourteen new color names available to them: Pink, Beet, Plum, Sea, Sky, Slate, Teal, Sage, Brown, Ocher, Sand, Fawn, Brick, and Crimson , which in English are rosy, beet, plum, be, sky, slate, teal, sage, brown, ocher, sand, tawny, brick Y crimson.

    Sleep is enabled by default as of GNU Nano 6, being callable through the combination ‘^ T ^ Z’ (without quotes). The options ‘–z’, ‘–suspendable’ and ‘set suspendable’ have been marked as obsolete, so they are ignored. If you want to suspend the editor with a click, you can place the phrase “bind ^ Z suspend main” (without quotes) in the file ‘nanorc’.

  • Version 6.0 of the GNU Nano text editor has been released - Market Research Telecast

    Version 6.0 of GNU Nano was released. The slim and easy-to-use text editor for the command line is included in most Linux distributions and provides the most important editor functions including syntax highlighting and macros via keyboard shortcuts. What is unusual about version 6.0 is its code name: “Humor heeft ook zijn leuke kanten” is what it means, translated: “Humor also has its beautiful sides”. The expression goes back to the Dutch comedian Herman Finkers, who coined the sentence: “Humor heeft ook leuke kanten.”, “Humor also has beautiful sides”.

GNU Nano 6 Increases Editing Area

  • GNU Nano 6 Increases Editing Area

    GNU Nano 6 has been released with improvements including the ability to hide the title bar and status bar to provide more editing space. GNU nano is a command line text editor for Unix and Linux that aims to be simple and easy to use.

    Nano was originally named Tip and was a free replacement for the Pico text editor, part of the Pine email suite that at the time was the most widely used email package on Unix. Nano is popular as an alternative to Vi and Emacs, and while few developers use it as their major editor, it offers a small, resource friendly editor for tasks such as editing batch files.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
