    Linux users have more text editors, IDEs, and command-line tools than a programmer can shake a stick at. If you're looking for a good programming text editor, we recommend Kate. It's super easy to get started with, but is quite powerful and has lots of great plugins to beef it up.

    Syntax highlighting support for more than 180 languages with bracket matching (to make sure you don't forget to close anything)
    Code folding/collapsing
    On-the-fly spell checking
    Show multiple documents at once with window splitting
    Session support
    Bookmarking system with scroll bar marks
    Code autocompletion with argument hints
    Vi input mode (for your vim junkies out there)
    Search & replace for multiple opened files or files on the disk
    Version control
    Extensible through plugins and scripting
