Qutepart and Katepart

Kate and Katepart (an editor component) is really cool software. The Kate authors and community have created, probably, the biggest set of highlighters and indenters for programming languages.

  • Qutepart uses Kate syntax highlighters (XML files)
  • Qutepart contains a port from Javascript to Python of Kate indenters (12% of the code base in version 1.0.0)
  • Qutepart doesn't contain Katepart code.

Nothing is wrong with Katepart. Qutepart has been created to enable reusing highlighters and indenters in projects where a KDE dependency is not acceptable.
