The Notepad++ for GNU/Linux distros

about Geany and Notepad++ · ·

Having used Windows operating systems for twelve years, the switch to a GNU/Linux one made me having to miss some known applications. Notepad++ is one of them.

Geany behaves the same way and if i didn't know any better i'd say it's an extended Notepad++.
It's worth checking out the extra's such as the extended snippets file at http://www.geany.org/Download/Extras

I love this application!

Very nice lightweight, fast, code editor. Used it for years.

I would have to agree with this assessment :-). In my years of development, I have yet to find a code editor with a built-in function explorer (intelli-sense) this light-weight. As a bonus it also comes in a portable version. Do install it if you're a big opponent of bloat.

Just an observation: Geany's text editing component is Scintilla, which is also the component for SCite.

I wanted to write in python and on Ubuntu there is not really any program to specifically edit python code. but this program allows me to edit the python code with all the line numbering and such that I want in a code language editor.
