Editra is an open source text editor that supports a variety of features, including syntax highlighting, for over sixty programming languages. Since it is built using wxWidgets, it can run on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Style sheets (used for highlighting) are easily written using the built-in style editor, which lets you test your code on the fly. It allows customization of text controls styles and you can export all setting in an Editra Style Sheet format. Among the other features are file history, tabbed windows, language keyword helper, line edit commands and transparency support. In the latest edition, it has a Perspectives manager to let you save as many custom workspace views as you need that can be used from session to session. It contains a new CodeBrowser plugin for browsing functions, classes, variables and other attributes of a document. The Projects plugin has support for the use of the Bazaar source control system along with some other minor feature additions.

Editra allows you to navigate menus without mousing with its menu mnemonics, automatically checks for updates during startup and allows you to set preferred fonts in your preferences. Launch lets you run scripts from within Editra and allows for custom output parsing and filtering for languages including perl, lua and python. Editra has a growing developer community around the globe.

Translations of Editra include Dutch, Chinese, Russian, Japanese and German. Editra is a very efficient editor that just keeps getting better.
