external_editor

Edit HTML forms in external editor

Installation:
    - Copy both scripts to your scripts_dir.
    - Add the following to config:
          @bind E = spawn @scripts_dir/external_editor.sh
    - chmod +x external_editor.sh


Usage:
    - Select (click/use the linkfollower) an editable form, go to command mode and hit E

Bugs:
    I am not sure, maybe it fails sometimes (he, how accurate)
    It should be able to handle every char (tested the common german ones (öäüÖÄÜß).
    But with some char combination it fails I think. Don't know why.
