[NTG-context] Text editors

Every user has his or her own preferred test editor. Over years I have 
used Emacs for just about everything except the kitchen sink, but not, 
as it happens, for ConTeXt.

For what it's worth here is what I use:

(1) TeXworks. All one has to do is indicate the correct path to ConText 
in the setup for this program, depending on your OS and where you have 
installed it, e.g. home/yourname/bin/context/tex/texmf-linux-64/bin if 
you are using Linux and have installed it in \bin. Then choose ConTeXt 
(LuaTeX) as the processing tool.

(2) But to make things a lot easier, I also use Federico's text expander 
<https://espanso.org/>. This just saves so much time, especially for so 
many \start...\stop sequences.  For example, in espanso I might have:

# blockquote
   - trigger: ":bq"
     replace: |

And this means all I have to do is type :bq and as you can sense from 
the example above, I have the \start and \stop and intervening space all 
ready to work with.
Hope it helps!
