  • Finding the Last Editor
    > One that isn't tied to a specific platform, or preferably even a specific company, and that I trust will still be around until I'm done programming. That is Geany[0]: no opinions, no company affiliations, no editor wars. It has been around forever, works on everything, and is open-source.

  • Best lua ide?
    I just use Geany for everything, it has a long history and has proven itself to be reliable. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Geany is a fantastic, fast, powerful GUI text editor for many purposes & has a low barrier to entry
    After trying a bunch of GUI text editors in Linux and on the Mac I gotta say that to me, Geany is the best. Source: over 2 years ago
  • I know, not exactly Linux.
    Have you tried Geany? It's based on Scintilla, just like Notepad++ is (although that's an implementation detail that you don't really need to know to use either of them), which helps it to feel very similar. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Good lightweight IDE for practising?
    Check out Geany. It's lightweight, cross platform, open source, and supports multiple languages. The download is only 20MB or so. I'm not sure about a keyboard shortcut for comments though. Link: https://geany.org/. Source: over 2 years ago
