Pluma?

Can we add Pluma? It's the default for MATE, and I really like it.

I can't really decide what to choose, kwrite or kate, both are really intuitively to use. Oh, well, kwrite has improved a lot in the last years, so it'll get my voice, but half of it is kate's .

KWrite or nano, depending on if I've got X running or not. Have dabbled with emacs and vim, though.

I use geany in GUI, but jed in CLI. Unfortunately jed is not in list. It is small, fast, has syntax highlighting and customizable key bindings, and has drop-down menu in case you forgot some key combination.
