Neovim is a highly customizable, extensible, and feature-rich IDE that has gained popularity among developers and power users for its efficiency, speed, and versatility.
It is an evolved fork of the venerable Vim (Vi IMproved), designed to address some of Vim's limitations and to provide a modern, community-driven development environment for text editing and coding tasks.
Pulsar is a community-led, hyper-hackable text editor forked from Atom and built on Electron. It is designed to be deeply customizable, but still approachable using the default configuration, and also cross-platform editor that works on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
It has a built-in package manager that allows users to search and install new packages or create their own right from the editor. Pulsar also has a smart autocomplete feature that helps users write code faster.
KDevelop is a free and open-source IDE for Unix-like, Windows, and macOS operating systems. It provides editing, navigation, and debugging features for several programming languages, and integration with build automation and version-control systems, using a plugin-based architecture.
VSCodium is a community-driven, freely-licensed binary distribution of Microsoft's Visual Studio Code editor. It is identical to VS Code in terms of features and functionality, but it removes all Microsoft branding, telemetry, and licensing restrictions. This makes VSCodium a good choice for users who want to use a code editor without any data being collected or shared, or who prefer to use open source software.
Geany is a free and open-source lightweight text editor using Scintilla and GTK, including basic IDE features. It is designed to have short load times, with limited dependency on separate packages or external libraries on Linux.
In contrast to traditional Unix-based editors like Emacs or Vim, Geany more closely resembles programming editors common on Microsoft Windows such as Notepad++, which also uses Scintilla. It is free software licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL version 2 or later.
