Just a quick post to say how much I love Kate – KDE advanced text editor – that is.
Dynamic syntax highlighting, syntax keyword checking and spell checking all in one clean, simple and easy to use interface. Working on multiple files is a breeze as you can cycle through them with the alt- key bindings.
Today’s tip: you can download new syntax highlighting definitions right from within Kate itself.
Basically, Kate delivers much of the functionality of an IDE while keeping itself true to its text editing roots. And it even supports Vim editing (well, a good subset of it anyway) mode!
