A free source code editor for Win32 and X Release version 5.5.0
Site last modified April 23 2024

SciTE is a SCIntilla based Text Editor. Originally built to demonstrate Scintilla, it has grown to be a generally useful editor with facilities for building and running programs. It is best used for jobs with simple configurations - I use it for building test and demonstration programs as well as SciTE and Scintilla, themselves.

SciTE is currently available for Intel Windows (7 or later) and Linux compatible operating systems with GTK. It has been run on Windows 7 and on Fedora 36 and Ubuntu 22.04 with GTK 2.24. Here is a screenshot of SciTE.

For macOS, there is a commercial version of SciTE available from the Mac App Store.

There are some extra configuration files that can enhance SciTE for various languages and APIs.

Questions and comments about SciTE should be directed to the scite-interest mailing list, which is for discussion of SciTE and related projects, their bugs and future features. This is a low traffic list, averaging less than 5 messages per week. To avoid spam, only list members can write to the list. New versions of SciTE are announced on scite-interest and may also be received by SourceForge members by clicking on the Monitor column icon for "scite" on the downloads page.
