- Diakonos is a customizable, usable, console-based text editor. It features arbitrary language scripting, bookmarking, regular expression searching, parsed ("smart") indentation, macro recording and playback, a multi-element clipboard, multi-level undo, a customizable status line, completely customizable keyboard mapping, and customizable syntax highlighting.
- 'Easymacs' is an easy-to-learn configuration for new users of GNU Emacs. It sets up key bindings that conform to a common denominator of the Gnome/KDE/OS human interface guidelines, and provides function-key bindings for other powerful Emacs features. It is fully documented, and the new user can productively edit text right away, without going through the Emacs tutorial. Users can access many commonly-used functions without learning the "chords" or multiple keystrokes that Emacs uses by default.
- Ed is a line-oriented text editor: rather than offering an overview of a document, ed performs editing one line at a time. It can be executed both interactively and via shell scripts. Its method of command input allows complex tasks to be performed in an automated way. GNU ed offers several extensions over the standard utility. The original editor for Unix was the most widely available text editor of its time. For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe. N.B. This pacakge also contains a restricted version of ed, red, that can only edit files in the current directory and cannot execute shell commands.
- Emacs is an extensible and highly customizable text editor. It is based on an Emacs Lisp interpreter with extensions for text editing. Emacs has been extended in essentially all areas of computing, giving rise to a vast array of packages supporting, e.g., email, IRC and XMPP messaging, spreadsheets, remote server editing, and much more. Emacs includes extensive documentation on all aspects of the system, from basic editing to writing large Lisp programs. It has full Unicode support for nearly all human languages.
- Fire★ is a a simple platform for decentralized communication and computation. Provides a simple application platform for developing p2p applications and share these applications with others in a chat like user interface. You don't send a message to someone, you send an program, which can have rich content. All programs are wired up together automatically providing distributed communication, either through text, images, or games. The source code to all applications is available immediately to instantly clone and modify.
- Free Oberon
- Free Oberon is a cross-platform IDE for development in Oberon programming language made in the classical FreePascal-like pseudo-graphic style. Compilation of user-written programs is performed using the Vishap Oberon Compiler and then GCC. The compiled console programs can be run in the built-in terminal emulator.
- gmpl-mode is an Emacs major mode for the GNU MathProg modeling language, which is a subset of the AMPL language. In addition to editing MathProg model and data files. this mode currently supports syntax highlighting and indentation. N.B. GNU MathProg is the mathematical programming language used to describe models that can be solved by the GNU Linear Programming Kit.
- The IDLEfork project is an official experimental development fork of Python's small, light, 'bundled' integrated development environment, IDLE. Its objective is to develop a version of IDLE which had an execution environment which could be initialized prior to each run of user code.
- Indent is a C language source code formatting program. It can makes source code easier to read by reformatting it in a consistent style. It can change the style to one of several different styles such as GNU, BSD or K&R. It has some flexibility to deal with incomplete or malformed syntax. GNU indent offers several extensions over the standard utility.
- Joe, the Joe's Own Editor, has the feel of most PC text editors: the key sequences are reminiscent of WordStar and Turbo C editors, but the feature set is much larger than of those. Joe has all of the features a Unix user should expect: full use of termcap/terminfo, complete VI-style Unix integration, a powerful configuration file, and regular expression search system. It also has nine help reference cards which are always available, and an intuitive, simple, and well thought-out user interface. Joe has a great screen update optimisation algorithm, multiple windows (through/between which you can scroll) and lacks the confusing notion of named buffers. It has command history, TAB expansion in file selection menus, undo and redo functions, (un)indenting and paragraph formatting, filtering highlighted blocks through any external Unix command, editing a pipe into or out of a command, block move, copy, delete or filter, a bracketed paste mode automatically enabled on xterm-xfree86 and decimal and hexadecimal gotos for lines, columns, and file offsets. Through simple QEdit-style configuration files, Joe can be set up to emulate editors such as Pico and Emacs, along with a complete imitation of WordStar in non-document mode, and a restricted mode version (lets you edit only the files specified on the command line). Joe also has a deferred screen update to handle typeahead, and it ensures that deferral is not bypassed by tty buffering. It's usable even at 2400 baud, and it will work on any kind of sane terminal. Furthermore, it supports SELinux context copying on Debian systems with the Linux kernel.
