gedit

gedit

gedit is a small and lightweight text editor for the GNOME environment.

Complete GNOME integration is provided, with support for Drag and Drop (DnD) from Nautilus (the GNOME file manager), the use of the GNOME help system, the GNOME Virtual File System and the GNOME print framework.

gedit uses a Multiple Document Interface (MDI), which lets you edit more than one document at the same time.

gedit supports most standard editing features, plus several not found in your average text editor (plugins being the most notable of these).

gedit plugins may also be written in the Python scripting language: to enable python support you need the pygtk and gnome-python-desktop bindings. Included plugins: Word count, Spell checker, Change case of selected text, file browser, sort, tag list, insert date/time, and shell out.  Other external plugins are also available.
