Welcome to the Textadept wiki.
Textadept is a fast, minimalist, and remarkably extensible cross-platform text editor for programmers. Written in a combination of C and Lua and relentlessly optimized for speed and minimalism over the years, Textadept is an ideal editor for programmers who want endless extensibility options without sacrificing speed or succumbing to code bloat and featuritis.
- D Programming language -- works with the Dscanner program to provide autocomplete for D code.
- Python -- Helps to automate indention in Python code.
- LaTeX -- Snippets for LaTeX markup.
- XML -- Closes XML tags as you type them. Can automatically close tags at the cursor position. Contains several XSLT snippets.
- Hypertext add-on -- Several of the above XML module's features, plus a limited implementation of the Zen Coding abbreviation engine. Requires the official Hypertext module.
- Moonscript -- And another one by the creator of the language
- A group of unsupported modules (including Adeptsenses) for Java, PHP, RHTML, Ruby, and Ruby on Rails can be found here.
- Toml -- A small module with snippets.
- Rust -- This thing has everything you could think of for working with the Rust language.
- Textredux -- Offers a set of text based replacement interfaces for core Textadept functionality, including a powerful file browser, buffer list, etc.
- File browser
- Lua REPL -- A Lua REPL using Textadept's Lua State.
- ctags -- A module for autoloading ctags, jumping between them, and autocompleting from them.
- Elastic Tabstops -- An implementation of Nick Gravgaard’s Elastic tabstops mechanism.
- Spell Checking -- A module for spell checking.
- File diffing -- A module for visualizing and merging the differences between two files.
- Hastebin -- A hastebin client module for TExtadept.
- Lapis -- A module to work with the lapis web framework.
- Love -- A module to work with the LÖVE game engine.
- Linux -- A linux kernel development module. Pretty simple, but works and makes life easier when working on those kernel modules or other kernel business.
- Lua pattern find -- Brings back Textadept's Lua pattern searches and toggles between them and regular expression searches. (Requires Textadept 9.0 alpha 2 or higher.)
- Export -- A module for exporting buffers to various formats like HTML for printing.
- Selected word marker allows you to select text in your buffer and all occurrences of that word will be surrounded by a box-indicator.
- Brian's common functions
- Folding Key Commands
- Math - Replace selected equation with its value
- Open terminal here (Linux/BSD)
- Open webpage or link
- Replace Posix time with date
- Combining close and unsplit
- Delete Lines
- Enclose functions
- Append a final newline to file
- Alternative save-strips-whitespace function
- Goto Symbol (filtered list)
- Quick "find next" for words under the cursor
- C/C++: completion with clang++
- C/C++: automatic indentation with uncrustify
- Highlight trailing whitespace
- Stats shows line, word, and character counts
- Switch to previous buffer (z-order) switches to the most recently used buffer, not the previous buffer in the buffer list.
- Control+Tab option: navigate buffers in MRU order
Collections of Modifications,
- rgieseke's common module
- Alejandro's common module
- Gabriel's tweaks
- Extra -- A module for adding snippets/changes to languages on Textadept, without having to write modules for each one.
