Review: Text and Programming Editors for Linux

Filed under
Software

When it comes to something as seemingly simple as editing text (programming, configuration files, etc), there are a surprising number of options available to Linux users. This review focuses on some of the more commonly used tools found in the Ubuntu repositories; most, if not all, of these editors can be easily installed in other Linux distributions. Most of these applications have similar core features, but some integrate more advanced functionality.

My Personal Favorite: gedit

The gedit text editor represents a good balance between easy use and advanced features. As the default text editor under Gnome for Ubuntu, gedit supports syntax highlighting for dozens of markup and programming languages. Other configurable options include tab/indentation behavior, text wrapping, and spell checking. The editor supports a plugin system for adding unique features. It also features a multiple document interface (MDI) layout to facilitate easy switching between documents.
