Geany is a GTK2 (GUI) text editor which is light and featureful. Here is a sampling of features from their about page:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Code folding
  • Symbol name auto-completion
  • Construct completion/snippets
  • Auto-closing of XML and HTML tags
  • Call tips

This is a editor that does such magical things as use control up/down to skip paragraphs. I love it for in-page bookmarking, code folding, search-replace, escaped-replaces and regular expressions for selections, documents and groups of documents.

  • The package geany-plugins is important..
  • I also (sometimes) use Leafpad.
