Good alternative of VI editor in Linux Nano

If we talk about editors in Linux then VI is one of the oldest editor available with Linux that works with almost every version of Linux. But we have to remember a lot of other other command as well like

:WQ for save
:wq! For save and exit
Command : $ vi testdoct.txt

“Nano ” command is another best editor i would like to say which provides very flexibel option for almost all necessary section.

Command: $ nano testdoc.txt

with this command you will see all possible options and their shortcut keys are already showing in editor as well. Use it this is really a good alternative of VI Editor in linux
