micro is a lightweight, terminal-based text editor inspired by the now-classic pico and GNU nano editors. Compared to its predecessors, micro offers modern conveniences like mouse support, undo, syntax highlighting, split panes, and clipboard integration. Unlike other very serious text-based editors, micro strives to provide a simple "out of the box" configuration and keyboard shortcuts that will be familiar to many desktop users. [more inside]

Emacs Artist Mode

Emacs Artist Mode (screencast) allows you to use the mouse to draw squares, lines, and other shapes in plain text, or even paint. I'm not an emacs user, but I thought this was pretty cool.
