This is my most interesting and most actively developed project. 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.

Basic features of Geany:

  • syntax highlighting
  • code folding
  • code completion
  • snippet 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, Assembler
  • symbol lists
  • build support
  • plugin interface
