SciTE

What is SciTE?

SciTE is a lightweight code editor. I mainly used to:

  • Do search and replace text with regular expression.
  • Write simple and small scripts.
  • Open huge file.



Customs properties I use

# Added customs properties in SciTEGlobal.properties file (/usr/share/scite/SciTEGlobal.properties)
# LinuxMint: /etc/scite/SciTEGlobal.properties
# -----------------------------
 
# Turn every characters to monospace.
font.base=$(font.monospace)
font.small=$(font.monospace)
font.comment=$(font.monospace)
font.text=$(font.monospace)
font.text.comment=$(font.monospace)
font.embedded.base=$(font.monospace)
font.embedded.comment=$(font.monospace)
font.vbs=$(font.monospace)
 
# Line numbering
line.margin.visible=1
line.margin.width=1+
 
# Foldable for block of code?(e.g. loops, functions, etc)
fold=1
 
# Indentation
tabsize=2
indent.size=2
use.tabs=0
 
# Status bar
statusbar.visible=1
 
# Highlight background color
highlight.current.word=1
highlight.current.word.colour=#316AC5
 
# Find/Search highlight background color
selection.back=#FF0000
 
# File Encoding
code.page=65001
output.code.page=65001

I add the $(all.files)\ right after open.filter so that I can see all the files when I open the file dialog:

open.filter=\
$(all.files)\
$(top.filters)\
