Alternatives to Notepad++ for Xfce with any license

  • Geany

    Geany is a small and lightweight Integrated Development Environment. It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a few dependencies from other packages. Another goal was to be as independent as possible from a special Desktop Environment like KDE or GNOME - Geany only requires the GTK2 runtime libraries.

  • SciTE

    SciTE is a SCIntilla based Text Editor. Originally built to demonstrate Scintilla, it has grown to be a generally useful editor with facilities for building and running programs. It is best used for jobs with simple configurations - I use it for building test and demonstration programs as well as SciTE and Scintilla, themselves. SciTE is currently available for Intel Win32 and Linux compatible operating systems with GTK+. It has been run on Windows XP and on Fedora 8 and Ubuntu 7.

    • A simpler version of Notepad++. Supports all the jazz you'll need: syntax higlighting, it's clever with Tabs, mass renaminc, etc. No macros though. xxavxSep 2016 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
