Simple Text (beta)

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/BadWolfie/simple-text

This project is now freezed due to an error in vala compiler that prevents us from continuing the development.
For further upgrades and updates please refer to the new and rebranded project.

Simple Text is a text and code editor written in the Vala programming language using the GTK+3 toolkit, taking advantage of the GTKSourceView, VTE and other tools.

It's currently available as an AUR package for ArchLinux and we are working to port it to other Linux distributions such as Debian and Fedora.

Check the releases page for installation options.
