I assume you are referring to syntax highlighting.

There are lots of good editors in Linux that does syntax highlighting. These are the editors I really like or have used quite a bit.

  • vim
  • geany
  • gedit
  • Bluefish

In the above list, Geany and Bluefish are IDE.

Personal note, I think gedit is a terrible program. It loads large files very slowly, and is just sluggish all around. I would stick with geany (and close all the tabs that make it look like an IDE) if you want a simple text editor.

I agree. gedit ( at least when I used it last) becomes very sluggish particularly with plugins. I like geany quite a bit though.
