I use emacs.

If you never tried emacs, you might check out:

• Xah's Emacs Tutorial
http://xahlee.org/emacs/emacs.html

• Xah's Emacs Lisp Tutorial
http://xahlee.org/emacs/elisp.html

you can use python to write emacs commands:

• Elisp Wrapper For Perl Scripts

Emacs keyboard shortcuts is problematic indeed. See:

• Why Emacs's Keyboard Shortcuts Are Painful
http://xahlee.org/emacs/emacs_kb_shortcuts_pain.html

However, you can completely fix that. See:
