Projects / SciTE


SciTE is a GUI-based single-document editor which uses the Scintilla editor component. It rapidly styles most common programming languages with good control over how syntactic elements are displayed, and features folding for C++, C, Java, JavaScript, and Python. Styling of HTML also styles embedded scripts written in VBScript, Javascript, or Python.

            Why this editor isn't getting raving reviews everywhere is beyond me..
            Just open the and <extension>.properties files and hack away at making your editor purrrfect.

            I'd been using second-(or less)-best editors for years, and then I found this little jewel. Thanks for the great app guys!

            Lite and fast
            SciTE is a real jewel - its the core editing component hidden behind other, bigger and more complex editors. I use this and ROX-Filer together as a simple editing environment.

            The main reason I like SciTE - its language syntax highlighting support is superb. Code folding and other features are icing.
