Gobby is a collaborative editor based on libobby, a library which provides synced document buffers. It supports multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat. It uses GTK+ 2.6 as its windowing toolkit and thus integrates nicely into the GNOME desktop environment. It provides users with real time collaberation. Each user has its own colour (changeable) to be identified by others. There are IRC-like Chat for communicating with your partners, syntax highlighting for most programming languages, session password protection, multiple documents in one session and the drag'n'drop of documents
