Whiteboard

=== Current candidate ===
juffed (git snapshot + compile with qt5)

=== Proposals with +++ and --- ===

ideas : https://github.com/Razor-qt/razor-qt/wiki/3rd-party-applications#text-editors

juffed
+ qtbased + lightweight
-- : Qt5 not yet on a stable release
-- : No upstream activity in about a year

qedit
*** http://hugo.pereira.free.fr/software/index.php?page=package&package_list=software_list_qt4&package=qedit&full=0
--- no package

tea
+qtbased
--more memory than juffed.

Kate
--- KDE depends

=== Discussion ===
[gilir] This is a comment
[israeldahl] Kate... will it bring in too much KDE stuff? It would be nice to have one with syntax highlighting.
[joern-schoenyan]Kate is awesome, but it has KDE dependencies. We should have a look at it in the future, likely KDE is able to remove the dependencies. But for now -1 Kate from me.
[gilir] Keep juffed for now, even with Qt4 (it will not be the only one for the start). 1 task will be to update it and to build it with Qt5
[tsimonq2] I'll keep the discussion open on this one, because I'm not sure what the progress is on juffed quite yet. We'll decide on something final in the future.
