Simply my favourite editor. I've written a ton of code using it exclusively - syntax highlighting in all the major languages. Why use an IDE?
One of the best text editors
Geany is richer, more customizable and equally light weight.
what else is there?
Why invent new editors all the time. There are two (and the rivalry takes on epic proportions) Emacs or Vi (Vim) Emacs is the most advanced you will ever see and Vi is the original since early 70-s
Editor imprescindible, rápido y bonito.
It does not come with tag highlight activated as sublime text does. You have to google for a module, for the way to install it an to activate it.
Got everything a text editor needs.
Love it, especially the dark theme mode. So much earier on the eyes...
does what it should,not too exciting
Recently became my favourite plain text editor. Doesn't look as sleek at Leafpad but is really useful for programming, CSS editing and similar.
Who needs notepad++
Стандартный блокнот можно в нём и покодить.
I'm mostly using sublime, but gedit is nice to have for simple and quick edits, especially from terminal
