I was wondering if there was a lightweight text editor that also had syntax highlighting.
Depending on one's definition of lightweight some that could qualify could be gedit, Kate or even Geany for example, but I'm looking for something in the lines of what Notepad3 is in Windows except for Linux.
This is a screenshot of Notepad3, for reference:
Think of it as Leafpad or Mousepad with syntax highlighting (plenty more, but for our purposed that suffices), simple enough to be used as a basic text editor but with some eyecandy to aid programming.
Is there such a thing?
