What's your favorite GUI text editor?

I'm currently torn between Geany and Sublime Text 2. What do you guys use?

Mousepad for quick small edits. Gvim for more complex text editing.

BBEdit


Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Re: What's your favorite GUI text editor?

Getting used to Geany... but BBEdit is also looking nice... VIM is looking like a steep learning curve... correct me if I'm wrong...

Geany is growing on me too, for coding.

Never could get used to vim and it isn't going to happen now!

Re: What's your favorite GUI text editor?

Geany is nice but Gedit works with all its plugins for a VM connected via SSH/Gigolo. Geany can't do that.

Re: What's your favorite GUI text editor?

Vim in a terminal emulator+terminal multiplexer. Gvim only for being called by Firefox's pentadactyl extension as the external editor.

Gvim provides no real advantage for me anymore, because a) nicely rendered fonts via libfreetype can be used comfortably/mixed with bitmap fonts and switched on-the-fly in urxvt and b) there is no :colorscheme I'd need to use gvim for.

Also, can't really cope with anything that hasn't vim power anymore - typing this very text up right now in vim via pentadactyl's nice Ctrl+i functionality (try pressing that in INSERT mode) :-)

Re: What's your favorite GUI text editor?

I use a combination of:

  • Geany, for editing config files.

  • Pyroom, for writing prose.

  • Nano or Leafpad for everything else.
