Projects / Scintilla


Scintilla is a free source code editing component for Win32 and GTK+. As well as features found in standard text editing components, Scintilla includes features especially useful when editing and debugging source code. These include support for syntax styling, error indicators, code completion and call tips. Styling choices are more open than with many editors, allowing the use of proportional fonts, bold and italics, multiple foreground and background colours and multiple fonts.

      Release Notes: Text display on GTK+ with Pango 1.8 was fixed. The C++ lexer now continues styling over line end characters for preprocessor lines and line comments, allowing the use of the eolfilled style on these elements. Keywords are highlighted within line doc comments. A new Ruby lexer handles some here-documents, %-quoted-strings, symbols, @-, @@-, and $-prefixed variables, pod-like sections, etc.

            this is a great little editor. The addition of syntax highlighting for HTML is a great improvement. I like being able to use the same editor no matter which OS I happen to be using at the time.

            Keep up the great work.
