Lɜafpad is a simple GTK+ text editor that emphasizes simplicity. As development focuses on keeping weight down to a minimum, only the most essential features are implemented in the editor. Lɜafpad is simple to use, is easily compiled, requires few libraries, and starts up quickly.Currently Lɜafpad has the following features:
Leafpad, notepad, gedit, kwrite
l3afpad-0.8.18.1.10.tar.xz (24 Oct 2012), or git clone https://github.com/caleb-/l3afpad.git
Lɜafpad is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL)
I ported Leafpad to GTK+ 3.x and have used it happily about 6 months. I have sent the patch to author of Leafpad.
However, he still focus on GTK+ 2.x only, even with Leafpad 0.9.x branch (he said).
I think my ported Leafpad is stable enough to share with other people, so I release it here. :-)
