Geany - A fast and lightweight IDE
----------------------------------


About
-----
Geany is a small and lightweight integrated development environment.
It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a
few dependencies from other packages. Another goal was to be as independent
as possible from a special Desktop Environment like KDE or GNOME. So it
is using only the GTK2 toolkit and therefore you need only the
GTK2 runtime libraries to run Geany.


Features
--------
The basic features of Geany are:
- syntax highlighting
- code completion
- auto completion of often used constructs like if, for and while
- auto completion of XML and HTML tags
- call tips
- many supported filetypes like C, Java, PHP, HTML, Python, Perl, Pascal
- symbol lists


Requirements
------------
For compiling Geany yourself, you will need the GTK (>= 2.6.0) libraries
and header files. You will also need the Pango, Glib and ATK libraries and
header files. All these files are available at http://www.gtk.org.

Further more you need, of course, a C compiler, for the included
Scintilla library a C++ compiler and the make tool.


Installation
------------
Installing Geany is done by the following three commands:
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

For more configuration details run
$ ./configure --help

If there are any errors during compilation, check your build environment and
try to find the error, otherwise contact the author at <enrico.troeger@uvena.de>.


Usage
-----
To run Geany just type
$ geany
on a console or use the applications menu from your desktop environment.
There a few command line options. See the manual page of Geany or run
$ geany --help
for details. Or look into the documention in the doc/ directory.
The most important option probably is -c or --config, wherewith you can specify an alternate
configuration directory.
