gedit is an easy-to-use and general-purpose text editor. Its development started in 1998, at the beginnings of the GNOME project, with a good integration with that desktop environment.

You can use it to write simple notes and documents, or you can enable more advanced features that are useful for software development.

See the gedit website for more information.


gedit is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later, see the file COPYING for more information.


gedit depends on GTK 3 and Gedit Technology.
