Submitted:  Apr 11 2013
Updated:  Dec 12 2014

Description:

Please note!
Homepage and download links have changed owing to my website host going tits up and down and up and down ...!

New Plugin Page ( Available from the 'Help' menu ) :
https://sites.google.com/site/kkeditlinuxtexteditor/kkedit-plugins

Current plugins are:

Clipboard
File Browser.
New Project.
Open URI -- NEW
Edit Remote File ( via SSH )
Session Manager
Terminal Pane

Example.

!!! IMPORTANT !!!

Plugin system has changed, if you have made a plugin see the example that is included, you WILL need to recompile your plugin.

Please see the in built help for details on how to interact with created documentation.
Doxygen support is still being added to, so requests and/or bugs will be appreciated, if you don't have doxygen installed you won't see the menu entry in 'Files'
I recommend installing Graphiz as well as Doxygen ( for the nice fancy graphics )

Also please check the built in help and the preferences after installing as some things may have changed.

!!! IMPORTANT !!!

Why another text editor?

Simple, I didn't like any of the others, anyway having used gedit for years it was getting increasingly difficult to keep it compiling without loads of gnome dependencies, looking around linux text editors seem to be VERY simple (leafpad) stupidly complex (GVim,Bluefish), trying to be all things to all people.
One of the best text editors I have used is BBEdit but that is only available on the mac, so I bit the bullet and decided to write my own with the best bits from BBEdit ( the name KKEdit is a tip of the hat to BBEdit ), gedit and leafpad. A simple uncluttered interface, no major dependencies, with just the features I use all the time, and TA DAH! KKEdit.

Some of the features:
Jump to function declaration.
Find Function declaration.
Find and open include file.
Multiple bookmarks.
Run external tools.
Save/Restore session.
Run external tool synchronously or asynchronously.
Pass selected text to external tools.

Find API declarations in installed Gtk-Doc's.

Full source code highlighted printing

+ The usual source view options, line wrap, line numbers etc.

!!! NEW !!!

Replace All now works on just the selected text, or the whole document.

Plugins can now be forced to add their main menus to a single global menu.

Massive speed increase in replace all.

Added 'Clear tool output window' to external tools, allows for clearing the window before running the tool.

External tool list is now sorted.

New 'View Output' option for external tools to view the output of external tools in a at at the bottom of the editor.

 Search & Replace

This seems similar to medit text editor.
I wonder if Search & Replace feature includes (a) RegEx support, and (b) All Open Files option in addition to current file.

I have never seen medit so I wouldn't know, but if there are any similarities they are purely coincidental!

I have thought about adding regex to search/replace but haven't found the time I like the idea of searching all open files and I will definitely put both on my todo list.
Thanks for the suggestions.

 Debian Installation

 
 by sadi on: Dec 1 2013
 
Score 50%

Thank you very much for the update.
I've decided to give KKedit a try; but I have some installation/dependency questions. Here are the closest matches I can find in Synaptic Package Manager for some Debian installation requirements:
1) gtksourceview-2.0-dev = libgtksourceview2.0-dev ?
2) unique-1.0-dev = libunique-dev ? (ver. 1.1.6)
3) ctags = exuberant-ctags ?
4) glib-2.0-dev = ??? (I couldn't find any reasonable match)

By the way is "Find & Replace in all open documents" feature present already or is it in your ToDo list?

1) yes gtksourceview-2.0-dev=libgtksourceview2.0-dev
2) yes unique-1.0-dev = libunique-dev ? (ver. 1.1.6)
3) yes ctags = exuberant-ctags
4) if you have installed build-essential which you need to compile anything on debian the glib dev files should be included ( if I remember as I don't use debian )

I am working on 'find in all files' but I have just started a new job and don't have much time for this so please be patient.

For the optional installs you need these:

Optional installs:
sudo apt-get aspell aspell-en libaspell-dev
sudo apt-get libwebkitgtk-dev
sudo apt-get install man2html-base

aspell-en is the english dictionary change to suit your needs.

Although the doc viewer is optional it is enabled by default and depends on webkit if you don't want to build the doc viewer you must specifically disable it like so:

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-docviewer

I would STRONGLY recommend that you install webkit and use the built in docviewer, if you don't it will use your default web browser which depending how it is set up is not as convienient or as fast as the built in docviewer.

I wouldn't mind installing webkit but how?
I guess the name of the debian package is probably libwebkit-something, and I have already "libwebkitgtk-1.0-common" and "libwebkitgtk-3.0-common" installed.
Perhaps I should also install "libwebkit-dev", and probably I don't need to install "libwebkitgtk-dev" or "libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev"?

See the INSTALL file for needed dependencies but you DO need the -dev packages when building source code on a debian system, use this:

sudo apt-get libwebkitgtk-dev

Debian is a major headache when building from source as most people forget/don't know that the development files ( headers etc ) are in a separate package.

I pointed out the above command earlier with the other optional deps.

After I've moved my scripts (external tools) like Sort, Sort Unique, Change Case, etc. from medit to KKEdit this weekend, I guess I can safely remove jEdit and medit, and start using KKEdit as my default text editor :-)

 kkedit doesn't work

Score 50%

I couldn't get this working either in a Nautilus Script named "Open with KKEdit" or in Terminal, although it opened the file(s) from the menu or toolbar.

I've also noticed that KKEdit .desktop file in /usr/share/applications doesn't have "%F" parameter at the end of the Exec command either.

Following this, it even refused to Open any file from the menu or toolbar.

Maybe it will go away after logging out and in again, but there should be a bug here.

Interesting...
I've just found out that KKEdit simply refuses to open/display certain files (html, txt, etc.) either via Open command or from the command line.
For instance:
"Anthem for Doomed Youth - popular First World War poem.html" REFUSED
"War Requiem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.html" ACCEPTED
"google.csv" REFUSED

To start off with can you PLEASE send bug reports direct to me via email the address is in the INSTALL file and also in the about box, these forums are no good for bug reporting.

But for now I need the files you say it can't open ( I regularly use .txt and .html files so don't know why you can't ), so please tar up the files preferably as root to save permissions etc, also run the 'stat' command on the files and check for any weirdness and also send the output of the stat commands to me.

Your other comment about the error messages points to wrong permissions/encoding, but until I get the above info I can't do much.

Missed the %F param from the desktop file as I don't use d'n'd much I'll put it in in the next release, thanks for that.

I don't use nautilus so absolutely can't help there :(

Email me and I will try and sort it for you.
