GNU nano is an easy-to-use text editor originally designed as a replacement
for Pico, the ncurses-based editor from the non-free mailer package Pine
(itself now available under the Apache License as Alpine).
However, GNU nano also implements many features missing in Pico, including:
soft-wrapping of overlong lines
selecting text by holding Shift
interactive search and replace (with regular expression support)
a go-to line (and column) command
support for multiple file buffers
tab completion of filenames and search terms
toggling features while running
and full internationalization support
This snap is maintained by the Snapcrafters community and is not endorsed or officially maintained by the upstream developers.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
