jove is as much a vim alternative as emacs is, not.

unless, of course, you don't like vim/vi much to begin with. if you are looking to get away from vim, but emacs is to big for you, then jove is the right solution.

if you actually enjoy using vim, then better stick with that.

greetings, eMBee.

There are several other alternatives: Jed, joe (which uses the old Wordstar key bindings), pico/nano, etc. See for a more complete list.
