User Reviews

  • Very handy editor for programmers, it has not only syntax highlights but basic class explorer features and mature plugin infrastructure.

  • I'm using jEdit for every text-edit tasks I have simply because: 1) It's so versatile 2) (relatively) easy to adjust to one's needs 3) Powerful due to its plugins 4) fast (enough) on a descent system 5) Usable on each OS I care for: macOS, Linux, (sometimes) WinDOS and even Solaris (back in those days...)
