New Gtk2 Text Editor


Just thought I'd let people know about a new text editor I have just released here:
http://gtk-apps.org/content/show.php?content=158161

Oh NO! I hear you cry not another text editor, but there is a reason, as I do a lot of coding I like a a simple text editor that helps rather than gets in the way with loads of bells and whistles and finger mangling keystrokes, I always used to use gedit but the gnome dependencies are getting too much as I now use LFS and xfce4 and leafpad is TOO simple, so I wrote this, it's got very few dependencies, but some nice features like:

Jump to function declaration.
Find Function declaration.
Find and open include file.
Multiple bookmarks.
Run external tools.
Save/Restore session.
Run external tool synchronously or asynchronously.
Pass selected text to external tools.

I hope you like it, if you don't I don't care! I didn't write it for you!

If you like it vote it up, my ego needs the boost!

Thanks, I have not tried with the lower versions of sourceview but if you say it works fine with those versions I will adjust the dependencies accordingly.

... "but if you say it works fine with those versions" :

No, you will be stopped by 'autogen.sh' : gtksourceview >= 2.11.1

? But may be it can be done by editing a script in KKEdit ?
If you think an earlier version can be used.


About requirement "gtk-2.24.13" :
No "stopper" on this one. Gtk-2.24.10 is accepted, and works.

Yes I know the build script will have to be adjusted I assumed that is what you done to use the lower versions - Sorry we was talking at cross puposes I will temporarily down grade my souceview and see what the lowest version is that will work, give me a while as I am redoing the ext tools functions at the moment.
Thanks for the i/p

When you are building software it is very convenient to have multiple OS.
( I'd usually have about 60 OS's installed.)
Then all dependencies can be tested with applications.

I don't have those sort of resources or the time to test on that number of os's though good luck to those who can.

The minimum sourceview version seems to be 2.9.9 less than that means also installing lower versions of glib and possibly more, on the next release which will be soon I will adjust the build scripts and put in the various info files that a lower version CAN be used but that version 2.11.1 is recommended.

Thanks for the feedback.

As I've been updating quite rapidly so far I decided not to include the version number in the tarball name as it's a bit awkward, but things should slow up a bit now so I will add the version number to the archive on the next update.
