Why isn't this more popular?
The defaults just work and no configuration required for a better vi like workflow
If anything it even teaches you how to use vim due to it's ease of navigation and commands

    It has a horrendous name even by FOSS standards.

      Helix has even less adoption and has worse defaults
      Its a terminal editor not some wannabe Emacs with a worse color scheme

        It has at least factor of 2 number of contrubutors and stars on github

        The defaults are just perfect, what are you on about ?

      I want to use emacs but it doesn't integrate with my terminal as well as I like
      I only did a brief look before going back to vim followed by settling with OP

        You're supposed to use the terminal inside of emacs.

        nvim already has sane defaults, and if I want to use something like this and can't be bothered to configure it then I don't even exist

      kakoune's grammar is object->verb unlike vim's verb->object
      this allows you to first edit the (multi-)selection with object specifiers and then execute an action on it which is much more powerful and intuitive than specifying the action first and then hoping you get the object specifier right

        But I already know vim motions
        I can understand moving to emacs, but both this and helix just seem like bototm shelf off-brand nvim to me

    its language server plugin seemed to break on me pretty often, and it has much more sparse plugin ecosystem.

    I could use kate if I wanted to do that shit

    one man's sane defaults, another man's insanity.
    I used vim for 3--4 months, and it was hell: always, something not working as expected, or vomiting errors, or whining about not being build with such and such options, or packages at hand.
    Kakoune is a work in progress as some thing is just way too hard, and their various scopes is unnecessary and unused complexity that ultimately has only inhibited me from various thing, like having a persistent vertically and or horizontally centered cursor, I just put in what it'd be for a maximized window. But the writing of plugins for anything and everything is where it wins over helix. lsp is gay, and there's a clag plugin that already works well enough; getting various linters to work isn't that hard either, so long as you're ready to perl the ever loving shit out of unconforming to the 'default' linters like splint, which I use only because of its ultra strict option.

    I used to use sublime text and swear by it, because its defaults were familiar to anybody from unix, mac, windows, because it had OS-based keybindings. But the multiple selections and the many plugins were its greatest assets, along with speed. Kakoune is like vim, without the migraine, with much less fiddlery required.

    90% of vim/kak/emac problems can be solved by using kmonad or a similar program and using a auto shift on hold configuration

      Literally none of my problems with kakoune or vim back then have/had to do with have too little or too much bindings.
      I have an issue that a few keybindings do not register at all, I assume because there's a shell or terminal emulator running under it so they're reserved or something.
