Fast and lightweight IDE
  20 reviews

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. It is using only the GTK2 toolkit and therefore you need only the GTK2 runtime libraries to run Geany.

The basic features of Geany are:
- syntax highlighting
- code completion
- auto completion of constructs like if, for and while, XML and HTML
- call tips
- folding
- many supported filetypes like C, Java, PHP, HTML, Python, Perl, Pascal
- symbol lists
- embedded terminal emulation

This program is simple to use, configurable enough for most of my use cases, and has extended functionality with a nice set of plugins courtesy of the `geany-plugins` package. As someone who finds it difficult to get used to the radically different hotkeys present in Emacs or Vim, this program was incredibly simple to just start being productive with. Is slightly out of date, with version 1.36.1 being offered but 1.37.1 being the latest available.

That is the lightweight IDE I was looking for. Works very well with Python or as external Arduino code editor. Settings are simple and the inverted color mode can be used as a dark theme.
