SciTE: a lightweight text and code editor

· Miscellaneous

SciTE is a lightweight, fast, and crystal clear text and code editor for those who love minimalism and efficiency. It is, however, a fully featured and highly customizable editor supporting tabbed files, code folding, and language specific syntax highlighting. It is one of my editors of choice for small projects: actually, I'm typing this article using it.

SciTE feels oldschool, a reminiscing gem from a software era when efficiency prevailed over complexity and bloating: in fact it feels so good that I decided to use FVWM (which is, for the record, the first Window Manager I ever used back in early 1996) to take a screenshot.
