Re: Pimp your editor

Used to use gedit but the ctrl shift selection really (really) annoys me it only stops at alphanum characters and will even jump past the end of line. Some nice plugins but the selection thing is just driving me up the wall

jEdit i really like (only editor i know that lets you put a background image in the editor window for extra pimpage) but i always find java apps a little sluggish and it wears the patience quickly

Trying out Kate at the mo, couple of annoying things about it but quite nice in a lot of areas, customizable syntax highlighting and the snippets work particularly well

GMate / GEdit
OS: Linux
Price: Free
License: Free

Languages supported: Lots but this plug in has been developed for making GEdit more like TextMate.

Description: "This package contains some gedit improvements to make it more similar to TextMate. The package contain code snippets, plugins, and an automatic registration of rails-related files."

One of the first things I install if setting up a new Ubuntu box.

Re: Pimp your editor

I use Eclipse for Android / J2ME development, MS Visual Studio for C/C++ on MS Windows.

For any other language, no matter the operating system, I use my beloved Vim.
