jEdit has been chosen as October’s Project of the Month

jEdit is a programmer's text editor written in Java. It can be configured as a rather powerful IDE through the use of its plugin architecture.

The jEdit project was originally started by Slava Pestov. The motivation was to create an open source, high quality, text editor for programmers. The project moved to SourceForge from the Giant Java Tree in early 2000.

Everyone needing a decent text editor and especially developers.

A couple of examples

  • For developing jEdit
  • As an IDE for various languages
  • Partly embedded in other applications
  • As a reverse engineering tool
  • As a very powerful text editor
  • As portable application
  • As an excellent XML editor
  • As an editor for KML files for Google Earth

What are the system requirements for your software, and what do people need to know about getting it set up and running?

Java 1.5, preferably Sun's. We provide several installers for several systems and even an own Debian repository, so installation usually is easy.
