KDE Text Editor

This is a simple tabbed text editor
for KDE that can do ftp and the usual stuff like mail, spellcheck, find, and replace, go to line. Will also run the make command for you in the background and later give you a new tab with the output.
It can read and write in all the encodings supported by Qt.
I have been using this myself for a while so i think it is stable and it works.
It has some very rough rudamentary syntax highlighting for a few languages that does not work well but you can turn it off!
all are encouraged to improve on this.
also suggest features ! if i don't need it to do something, right now it don't do it.


1)fixed a non-null terminated response buffer in the SMTP code that would in rare situations cause breakage.

2) fixed libstdc headers to modern format

3) rebuilt autotools to fix reports of a sometimes link failure on build

4) 7/6/05 i fixed where the spell checker was not marking the buffer dirty when it changed words and since this seemed like a major bug i changed the version # to 1.0.1.

I haven't tried it yet, so its just my thought: can this replace kedit? Imho kwrite and kate are perfect, but a bit slow to start on my system. so I whould love a very slim texteditor... you might considder build thise one to fill that nice (advanced texteditors we have).

thanks for the feedback..
i certainly built it to replace kedit on my system -- only because kedit wouldn't do some stuff i needed to do -- so no i guess it's not faster and lighter just different.

finally, a cute, lightweight kde text editor with tabs !
have been waiting long for something like this, thanks !
(btw. I wonder why kwrite/kate can't do tabs ???)
the only annoyance I found so far is this butt-ugly 'file-open' dialog
(seems to be pure qt-stuff ?)
where you even have to double-click on directories - aarrghh ;-)

Yes I to think the file dialogue and some of other UI enhancements are needed.

I hope you stick with this and progress it further. I dont like installing kate/kwrite and your program is a godsend since there arent any other quick and little text editors around.

Great job and I hope you continue working on it.

I would love to see files open in the unititled tab and the option to hide tabs if there is only one tab open. Also the closing of tabs is a little awkward (maybe it would be better to add the default close tab X like konquorer?).

This program could also benefit from a perference window. Toolbar customization would also be very nice.

Some polish would be fabulous because this fills a niche for anyone who doesnt want what KDE sometimes shoves on us.

Great job and please, please keep programming :D

Yeah? Well...you're hogging up all the ugly!

It looks certainly good, it even saves UTF-8 files perfect. I can open UTF8 encoded files with ktouch which were not opening with kwrite saved files.

Thank you very much. it is fast and has better interface than kwrite/kedit. good luck to you.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
