Some of the features in Noto include:

  • Characters, words, and lines counter.
  • Various encodings supported.
  • Advanced indentation (multiple selection support).
  • Configurable printing settings print with/without theme colors, rewrap contents to fit page at 100% zoom, show line numbers, etc...).


Features planned to be implemented:

  • Touch bar support.
  • Multi-caret editing.

Compiling the Project

To compile Noto you should use Xcode 9.

  1. Clone the project:
    git clone
  2. Switch to the directory:

Under Development

Noto is still under (slow but steady) development. The first release contains just the basic features but I plan to add many more in the future.
