R – Fullscreen editors


Whilst fiddling recently with Ulysses 2.0 – "The definitive creative writing package", I was struck by how effective the fullscreen/console mode was at focusing my mind on actually getting words on the page.

Are there any code editors that include a similar function? Or even a hack that allows code highlighting in Ulysees?

Preferably, for me, OSX, but feel free to list alternatives for others.

Best Solution

Any console based editor (vim, emacs, nano, ...) can be used in full screen mode, as long as the terminal in which it is run supports it. And I'd wager that most or all do. Usually this functionality is bound to F11 or Alt+Enter.
