android app question, boosts πŸ‘ 

Anyone have suggestions for a text editor for android? Main use case is editing my vimwiki files when I'm not near a computer. (markdown syntax, and I don't really mind not having the vim shortcuts, but termux/vim is one possibility I guess? If I can figure that out.)

@redoak the only _good_ answer i've personally found here is "termux + vim on a device with a physical keyboard".

@brennen yeah, for today my solution was to go find my laptop. it'd be nice to have the option though for small quick things!

I use Markor for this. Yes, it's not vim but it allows specifying directories and files to a degree that makes it work well with Syncthing.

While one could edit vimwiki files with it the workflow I end up using is to have a quick note file (basically the default text file opened by Markor) synced with my desktop and laptop. On those an alias (vqn) opens it in vim where I can consume those notes and put them in a wiki or whatever using a keyboard.

Nice, I'll check that out. thanks for the tip!

@redoak yeah - i miss it for little out-and-about stuff. i had a phone with a keyboard for a bit within the last couple years (gemini pda), and it was in general hot garbage except that being able to type for real almost trumped everything else that was bad about it.
