It is slim, multiplatform, and version 0.9.8 runs stably on my Xubuntu 18.04. It has features similar to those of the well-known editor Notepad++ (which is only available for Windows), like syntax highlighting for many programming languages, code folding and such. What I like is that there is a Markdown preview. There seem to be some bugs and flaws, but there are many things on the developer’s to-do list, so the further development gives hope.
