Scratchpad project is a spatial text editor for the GNOME desktop.
Scratchpad is a text and source code editor for the GNOME desktop (written with Mono), featuring a unique spatial interface. It is targeted at developers and users looking for a no-fuss editor that "just works".
Here are some key features of "Scratchpad":
Syntax highlighting, auto indentation and other essential features as provided by the GtkSourceView library.
A totally spatial interface. All state is persistant on a per-document basis and only one window for each document can exist at any time.
Automatic and transparent saving will never bother you with
"save confirmation" dialogs. What you see is what you get.
A revisioning system allows to tag a snapshot of the document at any time, browse the available revisions and restore them.
Integrated type-ahead search.
Block (un-)indenting by selecting multiple lines of text.
dbus and Mono including CLI bindings for all the libraries.
What's New in This Release:
Complete port/rewrite to Vala, Scratchpad now runs (flys) natively!
Tag-based replace mechanism.
Use GUniqueApp for single instance behaviour, so startup notification
and focus stealing should work better now.
No more GnomeVFS, waiting for GVFS!
Revisions. Wasn't happy with them, to be reconsidered.
Autosave and save options. Now defaults to save on focus out (saving
your laptop batteries).
It's practically a rewrite, so all bugs should be brand new!
Icon sucks less.
Font changes won't take effect immediately.
