FXiTe, the Free eXtensIble Text Editor, is an advanced text editor designed to have a feature set similar to the classic Nirvana Text Editor, aka NEdit. Although NEdit has been around for years, it still provides some useful features that are lacking in some newer GUI editors, such as scripting, macro record/playback, rudimentary ctags and calltip support, and multi-line regular expressions. FXiTe is an attempt to provide much of NEdit's utility, while presenting a more modern user interface. FXiTe also provides some additional features like syntax-highlighted exporting to PDF or HTML, drag-and-drop tab reordering, and a built-in "message window" to capture the output of external commands. Despite these extra bells-and-whistles, there are still some important NEdit features currently missing from FXiTe: multiple-document search-and-replace, paragraph reformatting, and multiple bookmarks, to name a few. Another design goal of this project was to create a single, standalone executable program that can be statically linked to the underlying widget toolkit without the need for additional libraries and support files. FXiTe uses the Fox GUI toolkit, the FXScintilla text widget, and the Lua embedded scripting engine, all of which can be statically linked, but it is also possible to build FXiTe using dynamic shared libraries for these items, in order to produce a smaller compiled binary. ========================= BUILDING ============================== Building FXiTe on Linux should be fairly straightforward, provided you meet a few prerequisites - 1. The GNU toolchain (gcc, g++, make, binutils, etc...) 2. A standard Xorg and FreeType installation. 3. The Fox GUI toolkit (minimum 1.6, but 1.7 or later is better) And of course, you'll need the development headers and libraries for the items above. Xorg and Freetype are standard on most modern Linux distributions, and a pre-built Fox toolkit package is also available for many popular distros. If you can't find the Fox toolkit in your distro's repositories, you can download the sources here: http://fox-toolkit.org/ Once you have the required libraries available, building FXiTe should be as simple as: ./configure [options] make make install Enjoy!
