Scintilla icon Download Scintilla and SciTE
Windows   GTK/Linux  


The license for using Scintilla or SciTE is similar to that of Python containing very few restrictions.

Release 4.1.7

Source Code

The source code package contains all of the source code for Scintilla and SciTE but no binary executable code and is available in Instructions for building on both Windows and Linux are included in the readme file.


Windows Executables

Windows executables only support Windows XP and later. It may be possible to build with older compilers for Windows 2000 but that is no longer tested.

A full download (1550K) includes the SciTE executable, any required DLLs, configuration files and documentation. After downloading the file, unzip it, and run SciTE.EXE. The files required to run SciTE are SciTE.EXE, SciLexer.DLL, and

A single file executable called Sc1 (1000K) does not need any DLL or properties files as these are linked into the executable. You may still create properties files if you wish. Sc1.exe has been compressed with the UPX compressor so that it is a fast download. It does not need to be decompressed to be used.

Windows Installer

An installer created by Troy Simpson.

GTK / Linux

Linux executable for 32-bit Intel compatible processors

This binary release requires GTK 2.8 or later and was tested on Ubuntu 10.4. If you are using a Linux distribution more than a year old you may need to rebuild SciTE to use your installed version of GTK. If the target system is 64-bit, you may also need to build SciTE from source.

A full download (1500K) includes the 32-bit SciTE executable, configuration files and documentation. After downloading the file, gunzip and untar it, and run SciTE. The files required to run SciTE are SciTE which is best located on the path (I put it in /usr/local/bin) 70 properties files which should be located in the /usr/share/scite directory, and Sci48M.png which should be copied to /usr/share/pixmaps.

Debian Packages

Official Debian Packages are available from Apt. There is a package page.
