There are quite a few plugins and themes floating on the Web, but if you want to take gedit's functionality to a whole new level, look no further than GMate.
Text editor: I'd love to see Scribes instead of Gedit. If anyone needs something to just write, why not go back to PyRoom? PyRoom + Scribes -- both are much more lightweight than Gedit. And haven't got GNOME dependencies.
I have upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10 (and thus Gedit 3.8.3), and several plugins I was using in Gedit (like "session save" and Strl-Tab navigation throught tabs) are now unavailable.
Can you help get them back ?
I've been developing in python using gedit 3 for a bit now, but without an auto-complete plugin of any kind, it becomes a bit confusing sometimes.
After searching for hours, I came up with a few plugins for this issue, but all for gedit 2.
If no one knows of a plugin like this for gedit 3, any info or references to some guide to port gedit 2 plugins to gedit 3?
The first thing you should always do after installing software (apart from viewing the manpages) is to check and see if it supports plugins. If you are not a programmer or hacker it really is the easiest way to extend capabilities. The Gnome text editor supports this feature out of the box.Here's three of the best.
Gedit is a text editor. The Gedit homepage list its full feature set..
