Geany IDE: The best lightweight IDE ever

geany developer tool code editor
Geany: The best lightweight and fast code editor available.
Geany is the best lightweight code editors i have come across on Linux. The best thing about Geany is that is lightweight, fast and as capable as IDE's like Eclipse, Netbeans or Aptana. Java and PHP both can be coded using this editor, while most prefer it for coding php than Java. Geany also supports many other major programming languages and scripting languages.

Having used Netbeans and Aptana Studio in the past, I find Geany to be faster than both. Although Geany is lightweight, It is as capable as Netbeans and Aptana. Features of Geany are,

  • Cross platform IDE. 
  • Supports almost all major programming, markup and scripting lanugages.
  • Lightweight and fast.
  • Easy to install, configure and extend.
  • Comes in handy also as a good text editor.
  • Simple and elegant GUI.
Windows is available both on Linux and Windows, but the windows version misses out on a few features. You can download and install Geany for Windows from geany.org/Download/Releases. Geany can be installed on almost all popular Linux distributions, 

Ubuntu: open terminal and type sudo apt-get install geany to install Geany. Geany can also be installed from Ubuntu Software Center > Developer Tools.

Fedora: open terminal and type yum install geany to install geany on Fedora.

Start coding with the best lightweight developer IDE available on Linux.
