Lightweight Qt5 Plain-Text Editor for Linux

FeatherPad (by Pedram Pourang, a.k.a. Tsu Jan <tsujan2000@gmail.com>) is a lightweight Qt5 plain-text editor for Linux. It is independent of any desktop environment and has:

  • Drag-and-drop support, including tab detachment and attachment;
  • X11 virtual desktop awareness (using tabs on current desktop but opening a new window on another);
  • An optionally permanent search-bar with a different search entry for each tab;
  • Instant highlighting of found matches when searching;
  • A docked window for text replacement;
  • Support for showing line numbers and jumping to a specific line;
  • Automatic detection of text encoding as far as possible and optional saving with encoding;
  • Syntax highlighting for common programming languages;
  • Ability to open URLs with appropriate applications;
  • Session management;
  • Side-pane mode;
  • Auto-saving;
  • Spell checking with Hunspell;
  • Printing;
  • Text zooming;
  • Appropriate but non-interrupting prompts;
  • Haiku OS support (by [khallebal at GitHub](https://github.com/khallebal));
  • macOS support (by [Pavel Shlyak](https://github.com/shlyakpavel)); and
  • Other features that can be found in its settings, on its menus or when it is actually used.

Enable snaps on Ubuntu and install FeatherPad (UNOFFICIAL)

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Enable snapd

If you’re running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver), Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) and Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo), you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.

For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:

sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd

Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
