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).
