Jext was created to support Java programming language. But nowadays it can edit many other types of source codes. Among them you'll find C, C++, C#, ASP, PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby, TeX, XHTML, XSLT, Eiffel, JSP... Besides it provides advanced features to ease you work. Manage your projects with the bookmarks tool, categorize your opened files through workspaces, directly open zipped files, get a file straight from the Internet, mail your source code, executes system commands within the internal console, type faster thanks to HyperTyper and to the customizable code snippets library, add new features with plugins, discover the advanced editing capabilities, use the internal Python interpreter... Jext meets all your needs! Developers will also appreciate the open architecture of Jext. Based on GPLed libraries, internal Python interpreter and many XML files, improving Jext is an easy job. You can even write your own plugins (in Python or Java).
