Powerful like an IDE, but fast and small. It does everything I need and never has bugs.

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.
